Getting a visa in hand is one of the wonderful thing that can happen to anyone, but until the people who made this happen arent credited, the happiness remains incomplete.My first interaction at Visas Avenue was Promita, the marketing manager. On her reference and past interaction with her from her previous visa company, I took the blind plunge into Visas Avenue. I hardly knew anything about this company, fortunately the risk was worth taking . I was in safest and most experienced hands in this industry.I owe my visa to Promita Deb, and most importantly; the key player, my SPOC (Shivangi Arora). Being in IT and having a non IT degree was the first and the biggest hurdle, as it required creation of RPL report and having handled support projects, it was nightmare producing one . We used to have hours long conference calls, discussing on the contents, editing, preparing draft versions. Finally with the teams effort , the RPL report came out so beautifully articulated that my ACS(with RPL) was cleared in just 5 days. Believe me !!! I had developed so much trust in Shivangi and her team during the ACS preparation that I never went through any visa expats/forums for checking on anything. Shivangi, took me through each and every step with proper guidance, answered my up teem number of calls, answered each and every query. This team is very experienced, you will never go disappointed, if you are struck at a point, exact document not matching, based on their extensive experience they have the proper justifiable workaround options. My POC(Shivangi) always made sure to collect extra documents from me and that paid off, we sailed smoothly through the journey without any turbulence . The whole journey from ACS to finally getting visa was completed in just 5 months. Marvelous job done by Shivangi and her team. Three cheers for visa Avenue and I wish them every success with their clients.

Visas Avenue was a great choice to start my Canadian PR journey. They are a highly professional team, information and guidance provided by them was always 100% correct and credible. My case manager, Kirti has been like a friend during the entire process. Her impeccable knowledge and vast experience in this field were the reasons why my application process was so smooth. She was always there to resolve any queries or doubts I might have had. I m very grateful to the Visas Avenue team, especially Kirti for always going out of the way for my application. I wish you guys all the best for future!
I would highly recommend Visas avenue for immigration services. Although I contacted Bengaluru branch of VA, but the case manager assigned to me was from Delhi. Consistent follow ups, easily reachable, Competent pricing and Up to date knowledge about the immigration rules are few of the many good things about them. Must consider them before you look out for other immigration consultants.
My heartfelt thanks to Team VISAS AVENUE ,Specially to Ruchika Sharma. We did some research on major players in India to get the Canada PR but we Zeroed our search on VISAS Avenue. We still remember visiting their Bangalore office to enquire about the Canada PR process,Promita Deb briefed us about the entire process and the applicable charges and then we took a weeks’ time to think and then finally confirmed to go ahead. Later Ruchika Sharma was assigned as our case Manager and I must say that she is very professional, Diligent and patient enough to answer our quires. She has in depth knowledge of the entire process and the time lines. I received Canada COPR for me and my family. I strongly recommend VISA Avenue for the Immigration process. I hope your company continues to thrive and wish all the very best for the future.
This is a great place if you want guidance to apply for a Canadian PR. The consultants know what you expect and they will get it done for you. I was allotted Ruchika Sharma, she is a gem! Got my PR within 30 days of submitting the application. Highly recommend Visas Avenue if anyone wants to apply for a PR.

My experience with Visas Avenue has been very gratifying. The primary reason for this is my interaction with Ms. Shivangi Arora, without who s support and persistence my accomplishment wouldn t have been possible. She assisted me with a high degree of professionalism and answering every query I had at different stages of the PR process. Her ability to listen to me, understand my concerns and walk me through the solutions was quite incredible. I am very appreciative of her hard work and the manner in which she made my life quite convenient. a big THANK YOU to Shivangi and kudos for her efforts.It would be my strong recommendation to go with Visas Avenue, due to the knowledge and demonstrated capability it brings. And, if you are lucky enough, you will come across and work with some wonderful professionals like Shivangi to make your life look simple and objectives easy to achieve.
I am really content and happy with the services of Visas Avenue. All the team members specially my Case Manager Ruchika Sharma has been of great support throughout the entire process, she is very knowledgeable and competent and knows her work well. I got my Canada PR visa well in time because of the constant support and guidance of Visas Avenue team.
