The consultants at Visas Avenue are very helpful and ensured that they were with us at all steps of the process. I would also like to mention that our case manger Shivangi was a great help.
It was amazing experience associating with Visas Avenue who helped me a lot understating and getting PR for Australia. My thanks goes to the whole team of Visas Avenue and especially Kirti Chauhan who worked really hard for my case. Actually, my real elder brother suggested me to take their help since he got his Australia PR by having association with Visas Avenue only. I will recommend everyone who is looking for any PR then kindly hire them as they people are the best for this job
Thank you for all your efforts and handwork in helping me accomplish something that i have desired for a really long time.You are a true professional and that is clearly evident in the manner that you have managed my case over the past few months.This was not the first time that i availed the services of an agency for visa purposes, but i can assure you that the experience that i have had with your agency has been worth every penny spent (all thanks to you).All I would like to say is THANK YOU, you are a good ambassador for your agency and I would never hesitate in referring anyone to VISAS AVENUE.Thank you for all your efforts and handwork in helping me accomplish something that i have desired for a really long time.You are a true professional and that is clearly evident in the manner that you have managed my case over the past few months.A special thanks to Neeraj as well..
I am overjoyed after getting Australian PR Visa along with my wife with immense help from Visas Avenue (VA) team in a record time of less than 6 months. We certainly recommend Visas Avenue for Visa aspirants. Our sincere thanks to the two extremely talented ladies-M/s Phanjina Narjary and M/s Kirti Chauhan. The entire process was hassle free and well organized. The best part of VA team is their proactive working and transparency. Our case was particularly complicated as I am Indian and my wife hails from Nepal. Initially I did research for at least 3 months about Visa consultants and must have had conversations with at least 20 of them across India and Nepal. After rigorous research of Visa sites and reviews on the internet, VA stood out to be the best choice with immensely informative website, no history of complaints and great reviews from clients. We met Phanjina at VA office Bengaluru. She was the main reason for us to choose Australian immigration after she did our profiling for both Canada and Australia. She was knowledgeable about the criteria for visa application and honest in her guidance. She was prompt in replying to mails and answered all silly queries that we had. After signing the contract, we were assigned to Kirti from VA office in Delhi. She is an admirable person when it comes to being proactive at work. Kirti ensured that all the documents were immaculate and was of extreme help in guiding us for my spouse documents from Nepal. She was clear in instructions and reviewing documents at every phase of our Visa application process. All phone enquiries were attended, all mails were replied and all questions were answered by her. Because of her proactive approach We never had any issues as our documents were sitting ready before the actual requirement for submission. We got our Visa only because Kirti was clear about the entire process and dedicated to do her best for her clients. Best Wishes for VA team in their future endeavorsThank you once again!!!
""Your aspirations are turned to reality at Visas Avenue!! I received my Canadian PR and Visas Avenue can’t be thanked enough for being a perfect guide to hit the mark. The whole process was handled by the team over calls and emails and I never felt skeptical about anything, as the transparency maintained by them was commendable. I would thank Divya, who helped me be very clear about the whole process and also Jyotsna, who was always very warm and immediately sorted out all the hiccups I had. Being in a different city or never being able to visit the office was not at all a hurdle to the process, it seemed as if they were constantly connected. A very very special thanks to my case manager Ms.Surbhi Rastogi, who was extremely patient at handling all my queries even if I asked the same things a million times. She kept me motivated and helped me stay positive through the process. She is extremely dedicated and always ensured that all the documents were precise. I highly appreciate her efforts to make the process hassle free and completely transparent. She had always been just a call away whenever I was stuck.!! I highly recommend Visas Avenue to the ones who are seriously looking for PR options. A Great Big Thanks to the team at Visas Avenue who helped me through..!""
Thanks to the Visas Avenue team for helping me file my Permanent Residency Visa Application well within time. You people are thoroughly professional and committed to your work. I can say that with your regular follow up with me regarding the various details regarding the demographics of me ,my husband and my daughter. We were able to move to CANADA, only due to your efforts as we contacted you very late, but you were able to help us file the application well within time. Thanks to the whole Visas Avenue team for their regular dialogue and support that enable us to complete the whole procedure quite successfully. Great work! .
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 :)

Take my words: "Visas Avenue" is Genuine Company !! We are happy to share that we have received our PR Visa recently.We hope this review may help other aspirants to get the required Visa for them. First of all, Before starting the PR process we reviewed the companies and their profile online. After reading these reviews of various companies we were confused and not able to decide which company we should choose. We realized, there are various fake reviews and feedback about companies. We decided to choose a company where we can physically contact the actual consultant and meet rather than any distant/outside India company. We suggest others aspirants to choose a company where you can contact frequently and share views/documents easily. ( because you have to send lot or documents and deal with various confusions.) Personally, we would like to thanks Shivangi Arora, Sr. Manager - Visa & Documentation at Visas Avenue. She has thorough knowledge of each and every process. It would be better if you talk to her before starting skill assessment. Shivangi is exceptional good and has a lot of patience. We can give her full marks. We suggest you please be ready with your IELTS score, Degrees certificates, Experience letters, Form 16s, PaySlips, etc. And Finally, have patience. In total this company Visas Avenue is professional and reliable.
