Immigration to the US from Canada

Are you a Canadian who wishes to immigrate to the United States? Many Canadians immigrate to the United States every year, but not all of them do it the same way. In addition, Canadians cannot just pick up and move to the United States, instead they must go through the proper immigration channels. US Immigration

Migrating is a hard task for anyone. Finding a job is even harder. Once I got a job offer, things started moving rapidly. So, I called used VisaPlace (Niren and associates) to assist with the process. Rania and Richard deserve the utmost respect in getting the job done. They have been patient with me and some set backs. Very professional.! Hands down, money was well spent. Thanks Rania and Richard, you make an awesome team. You'll definitely have a repeat customer with me !!
