Visas Avenue, what a professional company they are, who value their clients. Mrigya Shah and Arpita Saha were always there to guide us to the right path. 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. Their knowledge and experience is up to the mark. Thank you Visas Avenue team, keep up the good work.
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.
I had an excellent experience with Visas Avenue. Mr. Aditya from the Mumbai office, Mr. Nitin and my case manager Mr. Vijay Singh deserve a special mention. Visas Avenue made the entire Canada PR process look really simple. Huge credit to the team for their professionalism , regular updates and ability to handle critical situations effectively. Have recommended Visas Avenue to a lot of friends and will continue to do so!
The teams, people and process for VISA application at VISAs Avenue is worth appreciation. It was a time consuming process in my Case being a PNP applicant for Canada and I must say they really helped in getting Ontario province nomination. They know the exact stuff and what needs to be done in those cases. I want to thank Mr. Vijay and his team for their continued guidance and support in these 2 years. I would high recommend Visas Avenue for anyone wanting VISA assiatnce in New Delhi.
We first met Niranjan Kanade at their Mumbai branch and he was very professional which made us consider Visas Avenue to start with.I would like to thank my case manager Vijay Singh and his team (Nitin and Anjali) for the amazing service. My country of residence is currently Australia but despite of the time difference, I never felt like it is very difficult to communicate with them. They were always very prompt with their replies and made sure that all my doubts are cleared. Their documentation is so perfect that my application for PR got approved in just 3 months.They also keep following up with you from time-to-time which literally keeps you on your toes in terms of getting all our documents in place. I would certainly recommend Visas Avenue for anyone who is aspiring to become a Canadian Permanent Resident as their service is top class.
