Testimonials from Mexico

The only reason we chose Rapid Visa to assist us with the adjustment of status is because this company made our K1 visa application so much easy. The way they laid out the application forms and all the instructions was excellent. There were times when me and my fiancé got totally lost about the process and had questions about an information to be written on one of the forms. Rapid Visa never failed to clarify our confusion and answer all of our queries promptly.

I would say that Rapid Visa is a good deal and cost effective compared to hiring a lawyer.

We got the K1 visa approved in 3 months and we are now happily married here in the United States. How fast your visa gets approved will still depend on how quick you are in gathering all the supporting documents and completing the application forms however Rapid Visa will always be there along the way to assist you should you have questions.

We can't wait to work with Rapid Visa again for the adjustment of status. We'll make another testimonial for our green card journey with Rapid Visa soon.

RapidVisa is the best! After visiting with immigration attorneys, I was discouraged and given needless advice so i turned to Rapidvisa for help. They assured me that the petition would not be filed until everything was 100 percent complete and they did just that. My fiancé and I were able to upload information, sign and print forms, ask for help and finally submit all our documents to them for their final review.

The nerve racking interview finally came a year later but after Rapidvisa's help with preparation for the interview and some of my own research we were able to pass!! The look on my fiancé's face when the officer gave us the green light was priceless!!

I would like to say thank you to RapidVisa for if not for them my fiancé and I would have had difficulty in documentation as this is a very important fact for the process to go smoothly.

"Estimado personal de RapidVisa, Nosotros (Kaleb y Cristina) no podemos agradecerles lo suficiente! Muchas gracias Dan y Dominic por toda la ayuda durante el largo y agotador proceso de Visa K1. Cristina (mi esposa) fue aprobada y ahora estamos felizmente casados, viviendo aquí en los Estados Unidos. Estamos muy contentos de que el proceso de AOS también sea una opción a través de RapidVisa. Esta tarde enviaré la documentación final para el AOS. Gracias."
