Asia pacific was very proactive and helpful with my daughters visa application for Canada. She was in town for very limited time and thankfully her visa and passport both came within 2 weeks and in time. Definitely recommend to anyone.

I was at a very critical stage of my visa and I was lucky enough to approach Asia Pacific and seek the guidance of Rajni mam. She managed to put the file in a way that my wife and my parents also got the visa without any objection. Throughout the process, she was always in touch with the case. I highly recommend her if anyone has got any serious problems regarding their visas. Thumbs up to the team !!
