I can sum up their services in just one word - Incredible!!! It was such an amazing experience ever since the time I planned to give it a go with Visas Avenue. To be very honest, I was extremely skeptical while deciding upon a consultancy that could help me with Canadian Permanent Residence.The team briefed me through the whole procedure and then put me in touch with my Case Manager , Ruchika Sharma ( undoubtedly one of their BEST Case Managers I could say) , from New Delhi office. She has been assisting me in all respects since Day 1 , till the time my Visa was confirmed. Well, the service they offered made the otherwise tedious and potentially confusing process , rather seamless. Recently my PR was confirmed. Thanks again to Ruchika and whole of the Visas Avenue Team for their assistance and profound support.
Thanks a lot Visas Avenue team for your excellent support and cooperation in completing the visa formalities for my tourist visa for Canada. I am pleased that I will finally be enjoying my much-awaited tour in both these countries. I really appreciate the way may case manager (Sahil Vij) assisted me throughout the process and followed my application until approval. I highly recommend your Visa Consultancy Services of Visas Avenue and once again say thanks to them for all their valuable support.
I had a wonderful experience with Team Visas Avenue. My case was well handled by an enthusiastic team !! Mrigya Shah and Shivangi Arora were helpful and always available to sort out the queries!! Thank you guys for a hassle free journey! Wish you all the very best for future!!
Let me start by saying that working with Visas Avenue has been a good experience. I recently received my Visa for Canada and I appreciate all the support that the staff of Visas Avenue extended to me. Their protocols for handling applications are very thorough and efficient. They have working alternatives for different issues that might arise during the Visa processing. I worked with 2 case managers and one of them was Shivangi Arora. I must say that both of them have been excellent and empathetic. They are professional, helpful and dedicated. Special thanks to Shivangi who has been exceptional at her work.The overall experience has been very good. I would recommend Visas Avenue to people who want to immigrate to the destination of their choice. Working with Visas Avenue has been a delight. I wish them and the people who use their services all the best.
Clients are always painful and should always be handled with care and utmost importance. I have been demanding and have always expected transparency and fair play during my interactions with Kirti Chauhan(Visas Avenue). To my surprise, she has always stood more that my expectations at each stage. There have been good and the sour times. However, she has always been responsive and has been a face to all my queries, and at times, to my anxiety. She chauffeured me smoothly through the Australian Permanent Residency process. I am glad that she has been my case manager and hope she continues with the good work. Your efforts were remarkable and are much appreciated.
First of all I would like to thank Ms. Shivangi Arora and the entire team at Visas Avenue for their support and guidance for my PR Visa to Australia... I am so excited. There are no words to express my gratitude to Shivangi, she has been there all the time helping and guiding me, and at times patiently answering my stupid questions. There was times when I was wondering why she was so precise about each and every document, correcting and re-correcting every minute detail. Now I understand all the pain she took to get me a visa successfully. Let me tell whoever is reading this that I have had the best experience being associated with them, and even to this day I haven't met anyone personally nor have I seen the office.Today, I can proudly recommend Visas Avenue to one and all who would love to see their overseas dreams come true, but provided your documents are genuine. Trust me, they tell you at your first interaction whether your work will be done or not, that is even before you pay the money. I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to Visas Avenue. Finally, all the credit goes to Ms. Shivangi Arora, she is a gem of a person and I must say- an asset to Visas Avenue.
