I availed the services of Visas Avenue in 2014 to kick-start the process for the Australian PR which me and my family is interested. I got the necessary skills assessment done through Visas Avenue. Although the process was a bit complicated for me but Visas Avenue were very professional and helped me out on each and every step of the process. They not only guided me with preparation of documents, they also gave me an insight into requirements in order to make a successful skills assessment. The whole process was done in a quick and efficient manner. I have a got a positive outcome for my skills assessment and plan to use Visas Avenue services to complete the rest of the PR process. I would recommend Visas Avenue to my friends and relatives are interested in emigrating.
Hello, I have been using Visas Avenue services for the past one year for Canadian PR. Their services are very professional and their document work is impeccable. They will guide you at every step of the PR application process. I would particularly like to thank Sahil Vij and Kapil Arora for their continuous guidance regarding different strategies for PR application. I would also like to thank Yatin Malhotra for helping me prepare all the documents for PR application. I had applied for PR in June and in August I got the message that my application is ready for visa. I had many queries about PR process which Sahil answered patiently every time. I would like to recommend Visas Avenue to anyone interested in visa applications abroad.
Dear Visas Avenue Team,Firstly, THANK YOU!!When we first thought of applying for PR, we were receiving very negative feedback or some vague information without any guidance to achieve our objective of getting a PR. With a kind of poor experience which we had with various consultants I was not very hopeful about any fruitful results.But a very good impression by Aditya Kumar Mahapatra was all it took to calm my nerves. He guided us about various stages and instilled confidence of applying for PR.Once we enrolled with Visas Avenue, we were very fortunate to have Shivangi Arora as our case manager. During the whole process she provided the required zeal while undergoing such a long and arduous journey. Even though we were sometimes impatient, but she kept her cool with us and for that we are really grateful. Most amazing aspect of the whole process was that we never actually visited the office of Visas avenue once but still they were easily approachable and assisted us in our PR.Thank you once again Shivangi, Aditya and the whole team for your assistance and being the catalyst of change for us.
I highly recommend Visas Avenue’s Canadian PR consulting services as it came through for us. They did a fantastic job right from the get-go. The entire documentation was handled by Vijay Singh under Ruchika Sharma’s supervision. If you are looking for a painless and seamless immigration experience, then I would urge you to go with Ruchika and Vijay. They did an amazing job for us. Ruchika was phenomenal not only during application submission process, but also post app submission. There was a major complication in my application that she handled extremely efficiently. She was available round the clock to answer our queries and set the bar high for a quality application. I appreciate her hard work, and ability to deal with complex immigration matters, since without her this couldn’t have come through.One of the best things about Visas Avenue is it would handle minor of issues very carefully. I have had several doubts and stumbled upon many road-blocks during the process, and I can’t thank Ruchika and team enough to help us overcome such monumental obstacles. I would like to thank Visas Avenue and especially a big thanks to Ruchika Sharma. Keep up the good work.

All questions regarding the process were rightly and quickly answered, we always felt like she was our personal case manager and was always on top of our case.Our process started in December and she was always precise with the documents and forms required.
We worked with Shivangi Arora at Visas Avenue for our Canadian PR and had a successful and rewarding experience. Shivangi came across as a consummate professional in the whole process and is knowledgeable about all the procedures including finer details. Her attention to smallest of the details when we were filing for PR and guidance in having all the documentation in the required format helped us get through the process without any hiccups whatsoever. Applying to PR is a long procedure and all our queries on procedures were quickly resolved thanks to her short turn around time. We thank the Visas Avenue team and Shivangi in particular for handling our case with patience for over an year. We recommend working with Visas Avenue for anyone trying to go through the PR application process.
