My daughter applied for her Canadian PR through Visas Avenue. They helped my daughter with each and everything. Knowledgeable Staff, really good client service. I would especially like to thank "Archana Kumari" (she handled my daughter's case) for her support and help. She guided us through everything. Thank you so much, Archana.
The experience has been good. Archana & team were always available & made it a point to answer all my queries. Thanks to the entire team!!
Highly recommend them. This is not my first experience with them, but in fact have got my brother s, bhabhi s and two friend s applications already processed through them. The fees is quite reasonable and transparent and even for a straightforward case, I would recommend going with VA. Special shout out to Vaibhav and Samiksha for standing with me throughout the process. Thanks a ton, guys!""The best thing about Visa Avenues is that when they take up your application, they really get invested in the process. I started off with a 189/190 application but when the application conditions changed, VA advised me to go for 489. This is significant as they normally dont lodge 489 applications, but did it on my behalf as I was already a client. This willingness to go beyond what is strictly required is what I appreciate the most. Further, they are very diligent in going through the requirements and in dotting every i and ticking every t.
"Visa Avenues is a superb professional services available for immigration related consulting. They are super prompt, reliable, thorough and provide alternatives if required. My experience is based on working with Samiksha Lal, Vaibhav Saini and Shivangi Arora."

Thanks again to Shivangi, Vaibhav and Samiksha, keep up the good work.
