All our queries are answered to the satisfaction. They have been supportive throughout the PR process, and kept us motivated to not take any haste decision.

Great experience with the team. They were flawless in their process and more importantly they would nag us if we were relaxed in the process. They are aware of the complete process as well keep us updated with the changes in the rules(such as biometric became compulsory in the middle of my process and they informed in in time). Easily reachable. Special thanks to all who worked directly with me, namely Jasmeet, Raghuvir, Shweta and Archana.
When my husband and I were looking to move to Canada we researched on a few agencies to help us out with process. Visas Avenue came with a lot of good reviews and I am glad we went with them. Right from the initial meet up with the local team at Chennai and the follow up coordinating with Mrigya and Arpita has been great. They patiently answered all our queries and guided us at crucial junctures. They ensured our profile captured all the necessary points. We are very happy with our decision and glad we decided on visas avenue.
