I had a great experience with Visas Avenue. Right from the initial engagement, Sales team (Resham Agarwal) was nothing but transparent and provided accurate information.My case manger Ruchika Sharma had thorough knowledge of E2E Canadian immigration process and always provided timely response to my queries. She also ensured backup support during her absence and always demonstrated professional demeanour in behavior and communication.I would like to thank the entire team for all their support and guidance and highly recommend Visas Avenue to people looking for immigration services.
I highly recommend Visas Avenue’s Canadian PR consulting services as it came through for us. They did a fantastic job right from the get-go. The entire documentation was handled by Vijay Singh under Ruchika Sharma’s supervision. If you are looking for a painless and seamless immigration experience, then I would urge you to go with Ruchika and Vijay. They did an amazing job for us. Ruchika was phenomenal not only during application submission process, but also post app submission. There was a major complication in my application that she handled extremely efficiently. She was available round the clock to answer our queries and set the bar high for a quality application. I appreciate her hard work, and ability to deal with complex immigration matters, since without her this couldn’t have come through.One of the best things about Visas Avenue is it would handle minor of issues very carefully. I have had several doubts and stumbled upon many road-blocks during the process, and I can’t thank Ruchika and team enough to help us overcome such monumental obstacles. I would like to thank Visas Avenue and especially a big thanks to Ruchika Sharma. Keep up the good work.
Visas Avenue is certainly one of the best companies which would help us in getting a Visa and is very transparent in nature. I got my Aus PR in close to 7 months as promised and at no stage, I was disappointed. I got to deal with "Jyotsana" from Hyderabad and my case was given to "Shivangi" from Delhi and I am glad that Shivangi worked on my case and she was thorough professional to say the least. Shivangi was sending me timely updates on my PR status and at no point, I felt insecure or disappointed and I knew my Visa application is in safe hands. I cannot thank Visas Avenue and especially "Shivangi Arora" enough for helping me get my PR. You are the best. I encourage people to choose Visas Avenue mainly because they have professionals like "Shivangi Arora" for their VISA dreams to see it come true.
Everyone loves positive feedback, therefore, I feel it becomes moral responsibility to appreciate publicly all those efforts made for you to help achieving your dreams and goals.I am so grateful of the wonderful people at VisasAvenue for their consultations without whom I might have wasted time and effort and could have faced issues and objections with my PR process.My sincere thanks to Shivangi Arora, who remained calm, composed and focused even when I had freaked out by following expat forums. Her work ethics are beyond praise and highly commendable. She advised me with right, requisite and minimal documents thus I got my PR in less than 1 month.I must also say the team is supported by all strong members Rajesh Arora and Neeraj who were cooperative all thru this journey.I would definitely recommend Visas Avenue as I had no known reference and recommendations and glad I found the best.I wish them the success and Keep up the good work.
I have had really good experience with Visas Avenue. My case was handled mostly by Mrigya Shah and in her absence by Shivangi Arora. Both of them were highly professional and were always ready to provide answers to my queries. I couldn t have asked for a better team to deal with my visa process. Best wishes guys!!
"First of all I would like to thank Tabby K who initially guided me in detail through the Australian PR process, even though I had already conveyed that I will not be signing up for any Professional Services and will be filing it on my own. Still she detailed out every step and answered all my queries then and there itself. Secondly and most importantly a big thanks to our case officer Kirti Chauhan whose impeccable professionalism and patience in hearing and responding to our thousand queries helped us achieving the Visa. We used to be extra cautious and pessimistic with every step, but she always kept us motivated and was a great support during the whole process. I will definitely recommend Visas Avenue to all Visa aspirants."
I am extremely excited and happy to say that my PR for Canada was approved on Aug 29 which was almost 45 days from the day of AOR. I would like to thank Visa s Avenue for all the support and promptness in helping me in the documentation process with frequent follow up and reminders. Most importantly, their guidance across each stage of the application really kept our hopes alive and was very motivating throughout the process. My case officer Ms. Kanika was really exceptional in her work and provided us with regular feedback and suggestions to improve my EE profile due to which I could meet the CRS and ITA eligibility. I also would like to appreciate her knowledge and confidence about the entire procedure.Thanks once again VISAS S AVENUE. Keep serving your customers with the same zeal.
Positive and good google reviews made me to approach Visas Avenue office in Hyderabad and as per my expectations, the team over here provided a good analysis of my profile and suggested the better path. With out any second thought, i enrolled with them and my case was assigned to Ruchika Sharma from Delhi. Being in remote location, i thought that handling the documentation part over phone and email would be a tough task but her expertise with the process made things easier. With out any queries or CO contacts, i got my visa issued.Considering my experience, i would definitely recommend Visas Avenue to my fellow PR aspirants. Thank you Visas Avenue team and special thanks to Ruchika Sharma for the wonderful support and flawless documentation.
