My wife and I would like to thank you and your team for all the support and hard work. When we signed the contract with your team back in end of October, we were expecting at least one year of effort . Due to the support provided by Kirti and some other favorable circumstances, we were able to get our PR in just 8 months. The staff was very knowledgeable and easily accessible, hence all proceeding got done smoothly without any major huddles or roadblocks.
My heartfelt thanks to Team VISAS AVENUE ,Specially to Ruchika Sharma. We did some research on major players in India to get the Canada PR but we Zeroed our search on VISAS Avenue. We still remember visiting their Bangalore office to enquire about the Canada PR process,Promita Deb briefed us about the entire process and the applicable charges and then we took a weeks’ time to think and then finally confirmed to go ahead. Later Ruchika Sharma was assigned as our case Manager and I must say that she is very professional, Diligent and patient enough to answer our quires. She has in depth knowledge of the entire process and the time lines. I received Canada COPR for me and my family. I strongly recommend VISA Avenue for the Immigration process. I hope your company continues to thrive and wish all the very best for the future.
I used services of visas Avenue for immigration to Canada and got my visa in less than three months.All the paperwork was done by the Visas Avenue Team and I just had to send them the scanned copies of my certificates. I had lots of doubts regarding Degree Evaluation which Ruchika & Phanjina from the team solved them with ease.After this visa, I also got a job in a Canadian firm right from sitting here in India.And I am going to do my first landing in May.You of course can do the entire process on your own, but if you want it to be done in the correct way and quickly, I highly recommend their services.
Thanks to Visas Avenue for the excellent service provided. During the initial stages Supriya Prasad have made us comfortable by giving us an unambiguous picture of the entire process. Our Case Manager Vagisha Malhotra has an in-depth knowledge about the entire process and was very supportive. She was very precise about all the documentations because of which we believe the entire process went on smoothly. Thanks a lot Team. Appreciate all your help. Good luck !
