"First of all I would like to thank Tabby K who initially guided me in detail through the Australian PR process, even though I had already conveyed that I will not be signing up for any Professional Services and will be filing it on my own. Still she detailed out every step and answered all my queries then and there itself. Secondly and most importantly a big thanks to our case officer Kirti Chauhan whose impeccable professionalism and patience in hearing and responding to our thousand queries helped us achieving the Visa. We used to be extra cautious and pessimistic with every step, but she always kept us motivated and was a great support during the whole process. I will definitely recommend Visas Avenue to all Visa aspirants."
