It is my good luck that I reached to Visa avenue for my work. I thank Mr Gaurav and Mr Madan for their brilliant job.UROOSA TANVEER.
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.

Having spoken to a couple of agents and not being impressed with their responses and constant demand to urgently make a payment to secure their services I was hesitant initially while I got in touch with Visa Avenue.This doubt was cast aside in the first conversation I had with Rajesh, who was open with his communication and did not put any pressure on registering at that moment.When I did make up my mind I was assigned Ruchika Sharma as the case officer. There were constant updates over email and telephone and the seemingly endless process of submitting documents was made hassle free. This was very important when you have a full time job and with Ruchika following up the strict deadlines were met as everyone at Visa Avenue is very clear with the processesThere was always a backup person, who was up to date with my case incase Ruchika was on leave which I felt was one of the best aspects of the service provided.There is also a person touch with their communication.

We have been recently granted our 189 Skilled Visa. Thank you so much Visa Avenues for getting our Golden Email. I decided to go via Visa Avenue for the migration process for Australia based on all the wonderful review from one of my friend who is already well settled in Sydney, Australia - having now received my Visa 7 months later I can happily say they are all accurate.I greatly admire the professionalism, honesty and genuine friendly manner. Their help throughout gave me a great deal of peace of mind and allowed me to get on with other things in my life, whilst knowing the whole Visa Process was ticking along nicely. Excellent service, always available to discuss visa application via phone or email.We just wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU to Shivangi Arora my case agent for all her help. She was always available, helpful, quick to respond to emails (often within an hour or so), thoroughly good at her job and an altogether nice person.I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Visa Avenue to anyone considering going through this process. It's worth every penny of the fee!!Many thanks for all that you have done
Hello, I have been using Visas Avenue services for the past one year for Canadian PR. Their services are very professional and their document work is impeccable. They will guide you at every step of the PR application process. I would particularly like to thank Sahil Vij and Kapil Arora for their continuous guidance regarding different strategies for PR application. I would also like to thank Yatin Malhotra for helping me prepare all the documents for PR application. I had applied for PR in June and in August I got the message that my application is ready for visa. I had many queries about PR process which Sahil answered patiently every time. I would like to recommend Visas Avenue to anyone interested in visa applications abroad.
Very pleased I chose to go with Visas Avenue for my Canadian Permanent Residency. A HUGE HUGE thanks to Ruchika Sharma for all her hard work and support in helping us get our PR! She has been supportive and polite throughout and always responded thoroughly to my queries, which were plenty. I wish everyone gets a consultant like her.All my steps were cleared smoothly without any issues and not even a single query has been left unanswered. She has been in continuous touch throughout the process and giving us hopes during the long wait period.I’m sincerely THANKFUL on behalf of my family to all Visas Avenue Team for assisting in the immigration process and making sure that we get it without any difficulties.
