I cannot thank VisaPlace enough for their help. I had an issue with my immigration work that I needed professional help with. The team did a stellar job in making my case and I am greatly indebted to them. I worked directly with Alicea. She was extremely professional and responsive! Even after building my case and submitting my application, she was always available to answer any questions or concerns I had for several months after. I highly recommend the team and would come back in future if I have to. Thank you!
Visaplace was able to get myself my Visa, as well as many of my employees. They made my dreams of living in the USA and starting a company come true. Their process is clean, simple, and affordable. Thank you to the whole team for your incredible work!
