I got to know Visa Avenue through web search and filled up my online request. Ashwani dialed me at UK and explained me all the Aus PR processing. Initially I was not sure if I should put my step forward but Visa Avenue gave me enough confidence. They processed my case very smoothly and kept me updated on each step of it. The staff of Visa Avenue is really professional and approachable. I never waited in getting response on my queries.I sincerely say thanks to Ashwani, Amy, Rajesh, Erin, Ashmeet & Jyoti for their kind support in my process and wish all the best to Visa Avenue for upcoming future.
Our experience with Visas Avenue has been good. Shivangi Arora, who handled our application, was prompt and helpful in providing guidance and answering our queries.

Thanks a lot to the Visas Avenue team for helping me and my wife get our Australian PR. It was a complex process, but was made simple and easy because of the able guidance and promptness of my Case Manager (Ms. Kirti Chauhan). A special thank you to Kirti for what we have achieved today. Her timely advice and deep knowledge about the entire process, along with the extensive experience of handling different cases helped us a lot to get across the finishing line smoothly. I would definitely recommend Visas Avenue to anyone for immigration purposes and especially Kirti as the Case Manager. Keep up your good work.
Clients are always painful and should always be handled with care and utmost importance. I have been demanding and have always expected transparency and fair play during my interactions with Kirti Chauhan(Visas Avenue). To my surprise, she has always stood more that my expectations at each stage. There have been good and the sour times. However, she has always been responsive and has been a face to all my queries, and at times, to my anxiety. She chauffeured me smoothly through the Australian Permanent Residency process. I am glad that she has been my case manager and hope she continues with the good work. Your efforts were remarkable and are much appreciated.

She assisted me with a high degree of professionalism and answering every query I had at different stages of the PR process. Her ability to listen to me, understand my concerns and walk me through the solutions was quite incredible.

Let me start by saying that these guys are awesome - professionals, agile and they know their stuff. It took me just 3 months to get my Australia PR from the time they started working on it ( could have even been lesser if I was a bit prompt in document submissions). Kirti Chauhan who has been my case manager was extremely knowledgeable and diligent in the process which ensured that no documents are referred back by Immigration. Being process centric and knowledgeable, she ensured that stuff happened on time and right the first time.I surely recommended Visa Avenues for all the work that they do.
