Asia Pacific group has been very helpful for me from student visa extension to get regional sponsored. They have been proactive about the documentation and had explained me the importance of all the documents. They have always treated me professionally and answered all my queries at all times. I would like to thank specially EKTA and JYOTI who was handling my file. Both are very professional and had always updated me about the facts. I would highly recommend Asia Pacific Group.
