Visas Avenue proven to be good consultant when it's regarding processing my Canadian pr. To me they were professional and I’m completely satisfied with the accountability they have shown in my case and follow ups they did for me. Rajeshwari.V is my Case Manager for Canada and she did an excellent job in explaining me the whole process/ documents needed and how/where to get them. Finally i got my pr exactly on/before the expected processing time. I knew the whole process and yet I took help of visas avenue as I wanted professionals to fail-proof my application and make sure it cause no extra unnecessary delays and that’s exactly what I got for them. Definitely recommended..!!

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."
