Dominican-Republic-Flag-64-RapidVisa.comRapid Visa saves time by eliminating the back and forth of dealing with the bureaucracy of the government and their slow responses. They do this by checking your application and other paperwork for errors in advance of filing. This saves time and frustration. The service was well worth the expense.

Our photo was taken at the airport in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Confesora and I will have a long and happy life together.

Dominican-Republic-Flag-64-RapidVisa.comOne thing I can say is that by using Rapid Visa, everything went smooth and quick. We had our visa within 4-5 months. If anything, I would say that Rapid Visa had us over prepared. At our interview, the guy only asked us one question and that was how we met. All the proof we included per Rapid Visa instructions was sufficient enough.

Now my fiancé is here and we have married, and are working on the adjustment of status paperwork with Rapid Visa. I have already recommended the company to another friend who is bringing over her fiancé next year.

Dominican-Republic-Flag-64-RapidVisa.comI would like to thank the people at Rapid Visa for all of there help.You made the whole process so much easier. Although the process in the Dominican Republic has changed, and it takes a little longer,2 interviews now. One at the VAC, and one at the Embassy. Rapid Visa still made the process much more comfortable.

Without Rapid Visa, there is NO WAY, I would have been able to do everything on my own. All the paper work had to be just right,and it was. Or else the process would have been delayed longer. My fiancé Ana and I , thank you so much. I would recommend Rapid Visa to all.

Thanks again,

Dominican-Republic-Flag-64-RapidVisa.comWhat can i say but im so happy and fortunate to have found Rapid visa. The process was easy and the information given by the representative where perfect.

I applied around late November 2013 and withing a month or so i received my first letter from imigration stating they received my application. Withing 5 months i received a letter stating my application was accepted and a package was being mailed. Received the paquette around June 18th and was given a date for the interview for July 10. The best thing i did was to accompany my fiance to her interview because questions where asked of me that helped with my case. I believe the officer was surprised that see my passport and the amount of times i traveled to be with my fiance. i traveled every 3 months from the day we met in Oct 2012. As soon as he saw the amount of travel and pictures he welcomed my fiance to the USA . We were so happy to hear it .. 6 days later she received her visa via courier service . .actually we had it stay at the DOMEX courier to have it picked up a week later i went back to to D.R to bring her home and we traveled together. once you land you want to stay together on the us citizen side of customs. you give the paquette to the officer and they take you to another room to have your fiance finger printed and given your exp date.

A month after her being here we applied for her social which you need her I-94. that number is provided by homeland security. If this number is not given to you then you will have to go online and retrieve. but, all went well and we got the number and she got her social with a stamp stating she can not work without a work permit.but, its ok for now . with that we can now get married, in the state of florida you need a social security number.. but we held off a bit to save some money and in the meantime i got her a state id. we are on our way... Sept 26th we got married.. best wedding ever, small ceromony at my employer .. here we are now waiting to have her status change now and if all goes well, Rapid visa should have her application all ready and submitted by late October2014.. i trust they will get everyting done correctly and mailed in a timely manner .. i cannot be more satisfied with the service and professionalism that Rapid visa has given me. Thank you from my wife and i we are very grateful.

Dominican-Republic-Flag-64-RapidVisa.comGreetings,

I would like to share our experience with Rapid Visa. At first I thought this would be a process I could do on my own since I have done it before, but I soon realized that immigration rules, costs, and forms change at a moments notice, and I decided it would be best to get some assistance. I am more than happy with my experience with Rapid Visa, mainly because the format online makes everything so simple. I am especially happy now, since we are now applying for Adjustment of Status. I began the process on my own, but then realized I am writing down the same information that I had in the original visa petition, and that’s when I remembered that I could have Rapid Visa help me with this part too! My husband and I are very appreciative of this service and feel it is well worth the cost. I feel secure with Rapid Visa, that the documents I submit will be done correctly the first time, therefore speeding up the process. Here is a brief timeline for those of you who need some encouragement while waiting for the visa process.

January 2, 2014- joined Rapid Visa
Febuary 2014- worked on filling out forms and collecting all documents and signatures needed
March 5, 2014- sent in petition for K1 visa
March 12, 2014- NOA 1
April 29, 2014- NOA 2 (Approved and sent to National Visa Center)
May 30, 2014- National Visa Center sent on to Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic
June 17, 2014- Embassy in Santo Domingo received packet
July 12, 2014- Received information for Interview Appointment to be on August 4th, 2014 at 6:45am
August 4, 2014- Interview at Embassy- approved
August 14, 2014- Passport with Visa printed inside was delivered
August 18, 2014- He traveled here
August 19, 2014- WE ARE MARRIED!!!!

And to that end, we are now applying for Adjustment of Status... but that’s already getting taken care of, it literally took me 10 minutes to check over all the info after I paid for the AOS service and it’s now being reviewed! SWEET!

Thanks again Rapid Visa...

Oh, and one more thing... I do appreciate all the help that is readily available, you never made me feel like I was asking too much, and that is nice to know there are people to rely on.

Mike and Dorcas

Dominican-Republic-Flag-64-RapidVisa.comWe met each other in Azua, Dominican Republic; that was on February 17th, 2013 He was in a mission trip, evangelizing with a friend... They both were at my sister's house as guests for two weeks. The second week my sister invited me to her house, to spend time with the family... that was on February 15th 2013, so on Saturday 16th 2013, I traveled to her house in Azua, from another city... that day I saw him at my sister's house, but I did not showed interest in him...

Next day Sunday 17th, I was ready to go back to my city, and my sister invited to go to church and have lunch together... so while we were making lunch, he introduced himself and said a little nervous:

I am Mike. I was surprised... Not waiting for it... and just said: oh, I am Dorcas...

After that, I was busy cooking with my sister... later, while we were eating together his friend asked me:

Dorcas, Are you married?

No, I am divorced.

Are you praying for your husband?

I do not need a husband, I am okay (his friend ignored my answer and asked me again)

What kind of husband would you like to have?

... A rich one! (I said), (his friend was under control and asked me again)

What is it mean rich for you, Dorcas?

... I was thinking: oh my God, this man is insistent!

And then I said: a man who loves God, talks about his word, and plays the piano... does not have to be rich...

After that Mike said: Does not have to be rich, but if he has money is better... Jajajajaa...

And I am a musician, I can play the Conga and Guitar... (by the way, he does not, he is learning to play)... then we talked about different topics...

Finally, I traveled to my city. Next day my sister called, because Mike asked for my cellphone’s number... was funny we started to talk by phone and my English was so BAD... so we decided to text each other better... One day he said that he had a friend that was using Rapid Visa services and they could help him to bring me here and get marry... I said: MARRY!... I need to think about it... Well I did think... accept...

He started the process on July 2013, I came here on April 2014 and got married... We are so happy, going church, being part of the Worship team, living in Avila Beach... Visiting Sequoia... It is like a dream come true.

Now we are making the Adjustment Status process....

Dominican-Republic-Flag-64-RapidVisa.comI want to thank all the wonder people at Rapid Visa that held my hand through the whole K1 Process. I did alot of research on the K1 visa and came to the conclusion that I could do it alone but probably shouldn't if I ever want to see my fiance in the US lol. Before I paid I read through the testimonials and decided to call and "get a feel for them" I was very surprised by the friendliness and helpfulness they showed me in a what was a just information call. After that phone call, I became a member. I am very intelligent and I know my wife would of came to the US eventually but with RAPIDVISA, she was here in 5 1/2 months. I called and called almost every 2 weeks just so I can be ready for the next step and that gang at RAPIDVISA always provided easy to understand answers. Thank you with out you guys I would probably be mailing back some more information of something I forgot.

Dominican-Republic-Flag-64-RapidVisa.comWe had a crazy idea to marry and live happily ever after after we met on vacation in DR. I was then faced with the challenge of getting the visa to bring him over. I started to research it and came across Rapidvisa. I called many places and tried to get as much information as I could just to learn about the process. Rapid visa was the only place that offered a lot of information without pressuring me to sign up! I spoke to Jocelyn and she made me feel like this visa thing was possible, more that just a dream.
Rapid Visa held my hand through the entire process. I must've called a million times and when they heard Toribio, my username, they knew that I wanted to speak to Dan or had some series of questions led by nervousness. I imagine I was annoying, but they never made me feel that way.

I developed a special bond with Dan after the time that Daniel and I broke up and I called seeking direction on canceling the application. I never expected anymore than advice. Instead I got compassion as I was offered half my money back even though RapidVisa already helped me to assemble my petition. Soon after I called Dan to say that we made up, he laughed and said, "that's love", and we began talking about the visa again.

This process can be daunting- hard, emotionally and mentally. I was especially distraught around the time of the medical and the interview. I called constantly because I was so scared that we wouldnt be approved. Rapid Visa staff helped me by giving me scenarios about different interviews and promising me that every thing would be ok.

In the end, the visa was approved and am I waiting for him to come. I would like to thank the entire staff at Rapid Visa for all the support, giudance, and compassion they gave. Their service is priceless, especially when you are hoping to bring your sweetheart to your country or vice versa. The applications for the USCIS seem simple, but RapidVisa knows the ins and outs of this process. I feel like I got a lot more than I paid for. I have immense gratitude to them and commend their professionalism. Words cannot express how grateful we are. It is because of you, Daniel and I can finally be together. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Dominican-Republic-Flag-64-RapidVisa.comThank you for all of your help with obtaining a CR-1 visa for my spouse and daughter. The templates that create the necessary forms and applications are wonderful. The staff was very helpful with the numerous questions that I had. The whole process went smoothly including the interview. I heard the visa interview could be very challenging and intimidating but ours was finished in under 15 minutes. She should be here in the US real soon GOD willing. - Once again thank you.
