  2. We are a cutting-edge visa processing and biometric enrolment solutions company. Our mission is to provide clear, simple, and effective solutions to our partner governments. Headquartered in Singapore, our principal philosophy is to transform government and citizen services with solutions that are transformative and effective for all stakeholders. Biomet manages the administrative and non-judgmental tasks related to visas for diplomatic missions. This enables them to focus entirely on the critical task of judgemental assessment and decision-making.

    Biomet only provides certain logistic support to visa / permit applications on behalf of its client governments and in accordance with the respective contracts with them regarding such services / support.

    Apart from visa / permit application processing services and citizen services, Biomet also provides additional services called Valued Added Services (VAS).

    • Biomet is the outsourced partner of client governments and diplomatic missions for managing administrative and non-judgmental tasks related to visa processing. In this capacity, Biomet (through its visa application centers is merely responsible for the receipt of visa / permit or travel document applications, collection of biometric data where applicable, collection of documents to accompany applications on behalf of the respective client government / diplomatic mission; submission of applications and biometric data (where applicable) to the client government / diplomatic mission for their consideration.

      Biomet Services Pte Ltd has no role in deciding what documents are to be appended or what comments or details need to be made in the visa, passport, or travel documents application process.

    • Biomet also offers an additional range of Value Added Services (VAS) to its customers who wish to procure this directly from Biomet.

      Please note that our Valued Added Services (VAS) availability may vary from country to country. The services are completely independent of your visa / permit or travel document application procedure and might be purchased as per your needs.

      The Valued Added Services (VAS) offered by Biomet are purely optional / discretionary services, which are offered by Biomet to the customer directly available under a contract between Biomet and the customer at an additional service charge.

      Availing of this service does not affect or guarantee the decision or processing time of your visa / permit or travel document in any manner, as it is completely dependent on the client's government / diplomatic mission decision.

    • The client government / diplomatic mission of the country you applied a visa / permit or travel document for is the responsible party for the use of the personal data you provide in the visa / permit or travel document application form and, consequently, for the data received from your side in connection with the processing of your visa / permit or travel document application.

      This role is known as "Data Controller" as established in Regulation (EU) 2016 / 679 (General Data Protection Regulation). However, it can have different names such as "Organisation", "Data Fiduciary", "Responsible Party", "Data Handler", or similar, depending on your country of residence.

    • When Biomet provides additional services requested by you, such as but not limited to appointment scheduling, application / document tracking and transmittal, provision of self-service visa application workstations, document courier delivery services, etc., Biomet is responsible for processing the personal data you provide in connection with these services; hence Biomet is the Data Controller for these Valued Added Services (VAS).

  3. Biomet collects personal data about you when you request our services either as part of your visa / permit or travel document application process or when you purchase any of Biomet's Valued Added Services (VAS).

    • Biomet is authorized by the client government / diplomatic mission we work on its behalf of to perform administrative support, biometric collection (where applicable) and services related to the processing of visa / permit and travel document applications.

      Depending on the country you applied a visa / permit or travel document for, the personal data required from you may change, but it is always determined by the client government / diplomatic mission which determines the purpose of the processing of the personal data that, is to be collected, used, and transferred by Biomet as part of the visa application process.

    • If the data protection law in your country of residence allows, Biomet will use the lawful basis of "performance of a contract". What this means in plain terms is that when you purchase a Valued Added Service (VAS) from Biomet, you enter into a contract with us to deliver that service. We could not deliver that service without using some personal data from you, by entering into that contract implies you have given your permission for us to process that personal data. For example, in order to provide the courier service, we will need a delivery address.

    • As per the visa / permit or travel document application process, the information collected by Biomet on behalf of the client government / diplomatic mission is submitted to them for the purpose of assessing your visa / permit or travel document applications.

Fraudulent Recruitment / Employment Offers

It has come to Biomet's attention that, individuals misrepresenting themselves as Biomet' agents or representatives have approached people to offer fraudulent / fictitious employment opportunities, with the intent to steal personal information or solicit money from people. We encourage you to exercise caution and common sense when receiving any such employment offer, which requires payment of any fees / money, or promises a work visa in exchange for money. The said offers are completely fake and not valid. Biomet is not a Recruitment agency and does not offer recruitment services. Scammers operate primarily via the internet, email, phone etc. We warn people to beware of such scams.

Please be advised that, Biomet is a company who works only with government and diplomatic missions to fulfil their administrative requirements of visa application processing. Neither Biomet nor its representatives will ask for money from individuals under any circumstances to lure them with employment opportunities either in Biomet or outside. If you receive any offer that purports to be from Biomet, which ask for money, these types of offers are fraudulent.

Warning signs of recruitment fraud

The following are some examples of recruitment fraud which are in violation of Biomet's processes and ethical practices:

  • The email is not sent from an official Biomet e-mail address but from a free e-mail service such as: Hotmail, Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo, etc. It is also possible that, the email is sent from a fake email address

  • You are asked to disclose private or confidential information

  • You are asked to be interviewed over the phone or via an instant-messenger type program

  • You are requested to pay fees / money

  • You are requested to complete bogus recruitment documentations such as an application or employment visa forms, (the Biomet name and logo could be forged / fabricated and featured on the documentation without authority)

  • Insistence on urgency

  • Money will be requested for processing Work Permits, Visa applications or the like

Such actions are presumably intended to defraud or obtain personal information from the victims.

The activities of these individuals involve criminal and civil liabilities. While Biomet takes such matter seriously and reserves its right to contact competent law enforcement agencies to investigate and prosecute such illegal activities, it is often difficult to locate and prosecute these individuals.

Therefore, if you receive a request, either in writing or verbally, for an interview or a job offer that you believe is or might be fraudulent or suspicious, please disregard them. You may also verify the same with Biomet at contact @ biometservices.com

If you come to know that a fraud is being perpetrated, we encourage to forthwith contact your local police and / or any competent authorities and also to keep us informed by reporting the fraud at contact@biometservices.com

Under no circumstances will Biomet be liable or responsible for any loss, damages, expenses or inconvenience resulting from these unauthorized persons and / or activities.
