There are no words to express my gratitude to Shivangi, she has been there all the time helping and guiding me, and at times patiently answering my stupid questions. There was times when I was wondering why she was so precise about each and every document, correcting and re-correcting every minute detail. Now I understand all the pain she took to get me a visa successfully. Let me tell whoever is reading this that I have had the best experience being associated with them, and even to this day I haven't met anyone personally nor have I seen the office.Today, I can proudly recommend Visas Avenue to one and all who would love to see their overseas dreams come true, but provided your documents are genuine.

Your advice on language of job experience letters, selection of accurate NOC codes was exceptional. During last 12 months, whenever I reached to your team for help on any tiny or large step, my queries got adhered to within stipulated time – this also signifies your immense professionalism. You knew all the procedural steps with immigration authorities really well and because of your tutelage, my visa was granted in about 25 days after filing the application.

We spoke with various agencies and consultants before we zeroed down on Visas Avenue for Australian PR application solely because of their depth of knowledge in the area during the initial conversation and "no-marketing" approach. They meant business from day one and Anikta who was our relationship manager ensured that we get adequate support from the start. The best part was having Kirti as our case officer who not only made sure that our application and documents were in perfect order but also went extra mile to work on our application post regular office hours. She was always available to answer our queries despite her busy schedule and patiently addressed all our concerns with a smile on her face. We felt very comfortable working with her and she also took special care to ensure we're getting regular updates on our application. Her diligence was evident as there were no follow ups from the immigration department and everything was in perfect order. Thank you for being such a great partner in our journey!
Thanks for taking care of my case Shivangi ! I am delighted that we have completed a big mile stone by submitting the application well in time. I don't have to worry anymore, as you will continue to be there to help me achieve the final outcome. Let me take this moment to Thank you Shivangi ! You have been a great support throughout the process. Your conduct and approach while handling my application was beyond expectations. The way you handled the case and helped me in understanding the complexities involved in my case and arranging the documentation on time has been excellent. I am sure with you being in charge will take the VISA'S AVENUES to a great heights. Thanks!
After having a detailed conversation and evaluating the immigration processes of three leading consultants in the market for both Canada and Australia Permanent Residency, I zeroed down for the Visas Avenue for my Australian PR. The credit mainly goes to the in-depth knowledge of the Visas Avenue, Hyderabad's Branch Manager Jyothsna, and the competitive pricing for the kind of services being promised. Unlike other registered consultants, Visas Avenue did not charge an exorbitant amount for my application process. Jyothsna gave me assurance of assigning an experienced Immigration officer, and handed over my case to Ruchika Sharma, from Delhi office. After having multiple conversations with Ruchika, I am sure that, I couldn't have got more experienced and patient Immigration Officer than her. She was always there at each stage of the process to guide me to arrange and submit the right set of documents and at times explain in detail to few of my silly queries over mails and phones. I have already recommended them to few of my close friends (with the progress of my application, it was not that difficult to convince them). I wish Visas Avenue team the best of luck in future and hope that they will continue doing great quality work and earn a good name for themselves.

Well, I will not write generic review. I started planning to apply for PR around Dec 2016. I was not sure whether to apply for Australia or Canada. I met few consultants in this regard. Out of those, my experience with Visas Avenue was the best. On very first meeting they explained me complete process of PR for different countries. They also told me about pros and cons of different countries. In the end I decided to apply PR for Australia. My Relationship Manager from Visas Avenue was Shivangi Arora. I was impressed with her knowledge about immigration processes. She drew my road map for application. Right from reference letters to, EOI, to visa filing etc. Shivangi always took initiative from her side. She had answers to all my questions.Even on those frustrating days, when I saw other s visa approval and mine under process, she was able to satisfy my doubts and also never gave me fake timelines. Special thanks to you Shivangi . In September 17, I have got PR for myself and my family. I am really glad that I took services from Visas Avenue. Highly Recommended !!! Thank You. Please see my application was filed in April 17 itself, but there was delay from Australia s immigration department. Any delay on their part is not in anyone s hand. In this case neither individual nor consultant can help. Patience is key. So have patience and you will succeed. Good Luck!
I had a great experience with Visas Avenue. Right from the initial engagement, Sales team (Resham Agarwal) was nothing but transparent and provided accurate information.My case manger Ruchika Sharma had thorough knowledge of E2E Canadian immigration process and always provided timely response to my queries. She also ensured backup support during her absence and always demonstrated professional demeanour in behavior and communication.I would like to thank the entire team for all their support and guidance and highly recommend Visas Avenue to people looking for immigration services.
