Sheer professionalism and dedication is what they stand for. Thank you Visas Avenue for helping me achieve my Australia’s dream. My consultant Ms. Shivangi Arora and her team helped me on each step of the process. A special mention for Mr. Vaibhav Saini who was very approachable and customer friendly and answered all my queries whenever I asked. A big thumbs up to the team and Visas Avenue. Thank you again.
Our experience with Visas Avenue has been a good one. Though initially there was some delay due to the case manager being changed, when my case was taken up by Ms. Priyanka Kandwal, the process has been pretty smooth. I would like to thank her and the team for their patience while handling our case and would like to commend their knowledge and expertise when it comes to the rules and regulations of the whole process. I would highly recommend them for the PR application process and already have done so. Wishing them all the best!!
