Testimonials from Dominican Republic

So you have found love in the world and now you want to bring that special person to be with you in the United States. Look no further for help than Rapid Visa. Immigration Attorneys can cost tens of thousands of dollars. Rapid Visa cuts through the red tape at a fraction of the cost.

I started this process myself after now my wife, but then Fiancé got engaged in the Tagaytay, Philippines in April 2014. When I returned home to the U.S. my Fiancé started her application for her Philippines passport and I signed up online with Rapid Visa in May 2014. We both were a bundle of nerves during the whole process, but Rapid Visa got all of our USCIS paperwork together quickly and I paid for the optional Immigration Lawyer review. Having the combined strength of Rapid Visa with their thorough review and timely advice from the Immigration Lawyer on a few paperwork changes gave us both peace of mind that we were filling out this complex USCIS paperwork accurately and we would have a fair shot at bringing her to the U.S. quickly. Rapid Visa immediately made the paperwork changes and we were able to submit our petition to USCIS that summer.

Through ought each phase of this complex process Rapid Visa stood by us and helped answer all of our questions. Rapid Visa’s Manila, Philippines office also was able to help my Fiancé when she had questions about the U.S. Embassy's paperwork before going there for her Exit Interview. My Fiancé sailed through the Interview process and we received her K1 Fiancé Visa in March 2015. We were immediately able to purchase an airline ticket from the Philippines for her to arrive in Los Angeles in April 2015. So just a little over a year from the date we started the whole process we happily married in Las Vegas. We now live in our Salt Lake City area home happily married. Rapid Visa took the frustration out of the K1 Fiancé Visa process and helped us until my Fiancé’s arrival. Thank you for a great company and terrific service!

"RapidVisa valió la pena la inversión para agilizar la línea y facilitar el proceso de adquisición de la visa K-1 para mi prometido. Comenzamos nuestro proceso en noviembre de 2014, y Luis llegó a Chicago en febrero. Las personas de Rapid Visa respondieron todas nuestras preguntas el mismo día que se las pedimos, y sus formularios en línea y paquetes de ayuda hicieron que todo fuera menos estresante. Definitivamente estaremos usando RapidVisa para el proceso AOS. Gracias"

We are so thankful that there is Rapidvisa to assist our k1 visa application process. They are very responsive and helpful from the start of our k1 visa application until the end of my visa interview. I will be having my k1 visa in 2 weeks and plan to leave the country this coming September 2018.
