VISAS, IMMIGRATION & SECOND CITIZENSHIP
Our Visa Application Service is always an excellent experience with a successful outcome, as long as you follow our Instructions. We help our clients with Visa, Immigration & Citizenship Services for the following categories:
- Student Visas
- Work/Medical Visas
- Tourist Visas
- Visa Appeals
- Immigration Applications
- Second Citizenship
- Interview Prepping
The reason we have maintained a 100% Visa Approval rate is simple. We leave nothing to chance. We screen every applicant for eligibility before accepting them as a client. If eligible, the client must follow our Instructions and advice meticulously. If we deem an applicant not eligible for a certain Visa/Program, we politely decline to offer our services and give the applicant detailed advice on what they can do to improve their eligibility, if applicable.
Our Second Citizenship service is focused on helping HNIs or Families acquire a Second Citizenship in the country of their choice. This service is executed in partnership with Passport Legacy. They have an impressive portfolio and a very long list of satisfied clients.
