Testimonials from Benin

We began the visa process in June of 2016 and Janneth received her visa on March17th of 2017. She gave notice at her job and landed in the USA on April 30th. We married on May 23rd. We then began the AOS process and Janneth received her green card on October 10th.

Everything went very smoothly with the exception of a delay in medical testing waiting on test results during the visa process. I can't say enough about how friendly and professional everyone was during both processes. I had the pleasure of meeting some of them at the Las Vegas office when I was there on business and turned in and signed some paperwork right there after they checked everything for me. I would like to extend a special thankyou to Tina in the Manila office for all of her knowledge and professionalism and befriending Janneth during the visa process. I also had the pleasure of meeting her last January when Janneth and I were at the Manila office together. I will most definitely refer anyone going through this journey to use Rapid Visa. We couldn't be happier with the service we received and we will again come to Rapid Visa when we go through the citizenship process. Thankyou so much to everyone at Rapid Visa!
