Testimonials from Dominican Republic

We started this process thinking it was going to be very tedious, but the paperwork was simple. We were done with the whole process from start to finish, receiving our K1 visa in five months. Rapid Visa was there 24/7 to help with any problem we had, and made this whole experience very stress free. We recommend Rapid Visa for anyone looking for a hassle free experience.

Hello to the Rapid Visa Staff.

Well just wanted to update everyone , Maidhaz & Michael got Married on July 18th, 2012 In the lovely state Of Texas. There was a time I wondered if this day was going to happen. Why was that? Well here is our story, Maidhaz and I have been together for 5 years and we have a child named Danaya Mikhaela Wilson. We have been thinking just how do we get all these requirement completed and where will all the monetary cost come from? I talked to so many Agents and other people just how to get the Visa processed and every one said it takes time . (longtime & cost much) So with this I stopped and was thinking when would we ever be able to get together as a family in the United States.

Then one day as I was on the internet I saw the Rapid Visa advertisement GET YOUR VISA COST 299.... I said yeah right... the next day I sent Ben a note telling my situation (just to see what he would say right) well he hooked me and what a right decision it was, we began communicating and started working on the information needed. Man I was amazed at just how simple the forms and how they gathered all the information needed for each form. Then before you knew all was done an we filed on 12/16/2011 and got our approval on 04/16/2012.

Now hear this okay they arrived Dallas Airport on 07/02/2012 we were all excited that it was finally all done an we are together happily Married. Thanks to the Rapid VISA Family being understanding , kind, and willing to help in every step of the way , continue the great service and wonderful interest in helping other people. OH by the way Ben and his wife got started because they were in our situation once as well, they saw how difficult it was to get helpful information at a great price. This is why they have the desire to give you the best process of forms and correct direction for getting your family together.

I first met my now wife, on an Asian dating site. We are both the same age and we just hit it off great! We both wanted to make sure what we wanted first since we were older (50 years old). There was no talk of marriage, we just enjoyed the talking itself. After we found out how much alike we were and we felt as though we have know each other forever, we both kind of had the same thing going through our heads “like“, what the heck are we doing just talking when we both know that we love each other. That’s when I did it, I asked her if she would marry me, and needless to say she said yes… Or I wouldn’t be here.

That is when I started looking at what we needed to do to get married, and to bring her here. We had to decide if we wanted to get married there? If we did that then there is more paper work, and we still have to get married in the US. So we decided to make it as easy as possible and do the K-1 Visa, where you get married in the US and it makes your petitioning a lot easier, less time consuming and less paper work.

Even though the easiest way is the K-1, there is plenty of paper work and it can get pretty confusing. That is where www.RapidVisa.com come into play.

First I checked into what it would cost to have an Immigration Lawyer handle everything, paper work and all, I got prices from $5,000 to $7,500... Well that was out of the question for me, I don’t have that kind of money to throw away on a Lawyer. Before I seen RapidVisa’s add, I check out one other place on the Internet that did petitioning for the K-1, but they didn’t have the phone support as RapidVisa does, and there price was quite a bit more expensive… Then I seen RapidVisa. The first time I talked with Ben about how I can ask him questions when I have trouble, he said I can email him and he also has phone support until 8pm (central time) “then“. I’m not sure what his phone support time is now a days, I started my K-1 in 2009 or 2010.

I remember calling after 9pm once because I didn’t know what to put down for one of the questions, and Ben answered the phone… I was shocked! I thought I would just get the recording and leave a message. I called Ben so many times, sometimes 6 or 7 times in a day. I thought he was going to tell me that he’ll give me a refund and to go somewhere else and leave him alone!… BUT HE DIDN‘T, he still treated me like it was my first time calling him. That is when I knew I made the right choice.

Thank God for RapidVisa’s software that made doing this petition so much easier. I see they now have there own office right near the U.S. Embassy. They just keep improving more and more for the people who are petitioning for the K-1, that’s fantastic! I can tell you this… Even before all the new changes they have done now a days that have made it even better for petitioning, they were still great years ago when I did mine.

My wife and I have been married for two years now and we couldn’t be happier….

To the whole team at RapidVisa, my wife and I both thank you!
