"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."
Enrolled with Visas Avenue in 2017 for Canada PR. Have had a good experience. Except for a few follow ups that were needed at times, I am satisfied with my over all result. Mrigya was my lead consultant, and she has helped me in all possible ways whenever I was in doubt. Have also received great support from Arpita from the team. I recommend everyone looking to settle abroad, can safely choose VISAS AVENUE.
I had an excellent experience with Visas Avenue. Specially want to mention about Ms Jyoti Singh, my case manager for all the help and support throughout my Canadian PR journey. 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. I am recommending Visas Avenue to a lot of friends and will continue to do so as they provide effective services with reasonable fee. Once again, Thank You Jyoti and Visas Avenue for all your support.
