I have engaged with almost 5 migration consultancies for different services and ASIA PACIFIC GROUP IS THE BEST! They are very prompt and very clear in guiding you every step of the way once you've engaged, especially Zack and his team. The only challenge is to get a booking and contact them. But once you are in, they are always quick to respond. They are also very HONEST and KNOWLEDGEABLE of the process. Not all agencies are as honest as them. They are not after the money, they are after the good result!
