My experience with Visaplace has been excellent. I’ve received prompt and accurate assistance at a very fair price. Fadi and Mansi were knowledgeable, professional and extremely courteous. Immigration issues are not easy to deal with. Having VisaPlace behind you certainly makes the various processes so much easy to deal with.

Mansi was a helpful guide through the complex procedures involved in my application. I can’t imagine trying to get through the process alone. I highly recommend the services of VisaPlace to anyone needing help getting the proper documents to attend school in Canada

This firm is effective. The people who work here are knowledgeable and attentive. From the first consultation right up until my case was resolved, they made sure I knew what was happening. It’s not an exaggeration to say that without their help, I probably would not have gained entry into Canada.

My interaction with Brenda was cordial and professional, she understood what I needed and made sure that I got all my questions answered. Dumb thing to say maybe but I felt her smile coming through the phone. Thank you Brenda!

Thank you for guiding us through this complicated process. Although the first part of our process with Visaplace we felt was slow, they turned it around. In the end we had a good experience with their attorney, she was determined to get it right and deserves to be commended.
