I found out about them just randomly and thought I'd try as I was struggling with my visa issue. Their response was very good and prompt. I got an appointment with Mrs Muhammad Usman Rasheed on that very day within 30 minutes. Though I paid for 15 mins appointment, he was very kind to extend it for 30 mins. He was very thorough and explained things in details. He gave me the best advice and I am extremely happy with the service. I will be going ahead with my application with the him. Thank you to the entire team.

Mr Rasheed was efficient, well mannered and professional. Although he was out of the country visiting family for a special event , he made time to deal with our case. He was efficient, well priced and didn’t take anymore time than he had to complete the job. As a result of Mr Rasheeds review of our documents and application my wife’s spouse visa was approved within 45 days of submission. Not 5-6 months as anticipated. My wife will now arrive in 3 weeks time. We would definitely recommend his services and will use him again for our renewal in 2.5 years time.
