If you are looking for a Visa company who is fast, organized and very detailed oriented then you should get in touch with Visas Avenue Pvt. Ltd. Shivangi Arora was my case manager and she has a very good knowledge of the process. She was very prompt and diligent, she made sure that all the documents are provided on time so that the Immigration doesn t ask for anything at a later stage. I am really happy with their work as I have got my Australian PR because of them which is like a dream come true with 50 bands in each module in PTE test. I would definitely recommend them to all my friends and relatives who are looking forward for their visa processing. Keep doing the good job and making lives!!
I have been the client of Visas Avenue from past 1.5 years now and recently received the approval for Permanent Residency (PR) Canada. I must say that they are the finest bunch of dedicated professionals and probably the best in their domain. I visited them after receiving positive feedback from few of my friends & known. And I must say that I found their services exactly the same as I heard from my references.I was especially impressed by the way; my case manager (Ms Ruchika Sharma) went an extra mile whenever I asked her for help at every step, may it be related to the documents required, answering queries, LOI, online procedures, payments, etc.My Case officer & other support executives (Ms. Surbhi) were extremely helpful & professional throughout the visa process. At one point of time post many IELTS attempts I was unable to score CLB 9 & thereafter planned to drop the idea of immigrating to Canada but my case manager: Ms Ruchika Sharma was quite positive to convince me & gave vital advise to apply for Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP). In fact, she did it on my behalf and fortunately, I was nominated from the Ontario Province of Canada. It made my road to Canada lot easier as I subsequently, got Invite to apply for Canada PR, which wouldn’t have been possible without the sincere efforts of this hardworking professional team @ Visas Avenue. Thanks for making my wish come true.Best of Luck !!
