We worked with Shivangi Arora at Visas Avenue for our Canadian PR and had a successful and rewarding experience. Shivangi came across as a consummate professional in the whole process and is knowledgeable about all the procedures including finer details. Her attention to smallest of the details when we were filing for PR and guidance in having all the documentation in the required format helped us get through the process without any hiccups whatsoever. Applying to PR is a long procedure and all our queries on procedures were quickly resolved thanks to her short turn around time. We thank the Visas Avenue team and Shivangi in particular for handling our case with patience for over an year. We recommend working with Visas Avenue for anyone trying to go through the PR application process.

I admire the expertise and dedicated service of Visas Avenue. Probably the best Visa Consultancy Services in India. I got my Australian PR visa approval with all the issues with it. It became possible only because of continuous follow up from the whole Visas Avenue team. They not only reminded and updated me about all the documentations and important dates, but also followed my application with authorities absolutely perfectly. I want to utilize your services every time I need a visa for any country. All my friends too, are going to contact you for Visa assistance. Great Client Service Visas Avenue.
I am really content and happy with the services of Visas Avenue. All the team members specially my Case Manager Ruchika Sharma has been of great support throughout the entire process, she is very knowledgeable and competent and knows her work well. I got my Canada PR visa well in time because of the constant support and guidance of Visas Avenue team. Thanks for your assistance and admirable client servicing skills.I will certainly recommend your services to whoever is willing to immigrate in my known ones.
The team here is value for all the trust and expectation you have from any consulting firm (offcourse value for money...they hit the nail). Members to whom so ever I have spoken to are absolute professionals, good with what they do and swift in terms of updates. Shivangi Arora who was assigned as my consultant manager was fantastic in her approach ,extremely knowledgeable and prompt in terms of reviewing documents, providing updates and answering lot of silly questions with patience and that makes a difference. Immigration department never came back asking to revisit any documents and that is what anybody expects after you opt for a consultancy to help you out.Everything was just perfect and on time ... thanks Shivangi and team :).I have already recommended Visas Avenue to one of my friends this morning and also asked them to check ...if Shivangi could be their case manager :)

"I am very pleased with the services provided by Visas Avenue. My case manager Ms. Kirti Chauhan handled my case of Canadian PR application very well. From the first day till the end, Visas Avenue team was very cooperative in answering all my queries and gave me right direction at each stage of this application. I would recommend Visas Avenue to anyone for all types of immigration services!"
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.
