Visas Avenue has been extremely helpful to me in my Australia PR application. My case was very complicated because of some personal emergencies I had during the application process but Samiksha Lal handled it very smoothly with a lot of expertise. My heartily thanks to her for helping me through the whole process with a lot of patience, and never minding my ever changing circumstances. Thank you Samiksha, thanks a lot. I owe you my regards.
Visas Avenue is probably the best company out there for these types of services. I had the pleasure of working with Priyanka Kandwal. She made the process so easy for me by answering all my queries in a timely manner. I am really grateful to you Priyanka for taking me to the finish line. I could not have asked for a better case worker. Keep up the good work.
Jasmeet & Archana was very helpful in assisting me and my wife in getting PR for Canada. They explained the step by step process and took a lot of responsibility in making sure our documents are in order. They made sure we don't miss anything and took care to make sure that there was no reason for our application to be rejected. I highly recommend them for all your immigration needs.

I am extremely happy and would like to thank my case manager Priyanka Kandwal for her support throughout the process. She is pro-active and dedicated in helping out to prepare my documents well before the timeline and in best possible manner. I was very confident that my application is well documented.

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.
