I am highly thankful to you and your team for helping me out in getting my PR. Your team is well versed with the process knowledge. I have and will recommend Visas Avenue to anyone who have been planning for their PR journey. The fees charged are very much justified to the work quality delivered. Being residing in a different city from the case office and still coordinating with such ease is what I feel was most important in my case. A special thanks for my case officer Ruchika and her team. They were extremely helpful in my entire journey. The process knowledge and adherence to different protocols is what I appreciate the most. Hope more success to VISAS Avenue team in future. Thanks again
