Testimonials from Dominican Republic

Thanks to RapidVisa, I am now in Texas and happily married. RapidVisa helped me in so many ways - the availability of assistance via chat, email, and visits to the Manila office were invaluable. Albert at the Manila office was very helpful. Thanks again!

My wife and I thank Rapid Visa for helping us with our K-1 visa every step along the way. We want to thank Rapid Visa's staff, especially to Albert, for all of his guidance and expertise. This has been a long journey for us, from our initial chatting online to our marriage here in the USA. Rapid Visa helped to make it all possible and we highly recommend them to any couple considering obtaining a visa. Thank You Very Much and God Bless Us All!
