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.
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.
