Testimonials from Mexico

I would like to say the process of applying for an Emigrant Visa is a long complicated process. Without Rapid Visa, I would, most likely, not have been able to attain this Visa or it would have taken a considerable amount of more time. Rapid Visa was always there, for me, to answer any questions I had. I still have access to them if I have any questions even though we have already received the visa.. They are experienced and they have well mannered people working in their organization. They have all the tools available to make it as easy for the applicant as possible. Very Importantly they can be trusted!

When my wife and I went to the US Embassy in Manila for her final interview, she went through each step with no hesitation or any delay because she was well prepared and all documents necessary were in her possession, thanks to the Rapid Visa Company. I have and will continue to highly recommend Rapid Visa to anyone applying for a Visa.

God Be With Us All Always,

Ben and the whole Rapid Visa team, you guys are super helpful. Ben was always at the office every time I called, and was very helpful answering all my questions and concerns. In my eye's it is a waste to hire a lawyer or any other visa service that charges thousands of dollars when Rapid Visa helps you step by step for a fraction of the price. Ben has been doing this for a long time and know exactly what he is talking about. Rapid Visa is very much recommended in my eyes. Thanks guys.

"Queremos agradecer a RapidVisa, pero en especial gracias a Weng, ella me ha ayudado mucho en todas mis preguntas y dudas de que haya estado allí conmigo por horas tratando de resolver algo o simplemente de darme un consejo en mi visa de prometido, no lo sé lo que sería de mí si ella no me ayudara con el proceso, estaba más allá de lo nervioso y asustado, algo tan poco arruinaría todo el proceso que recibieron son documentos el 6 de febrero para el 31 de mayo, fuimos aprobados y en adelante El 17 de julio se aprobó la visa, la entrevista estaba muy avanzada debido a que tenía mis vacaciones hasta julio y quería darle personalmente el papeleo. ¡y el 8 de agosto fue su entrada a los Estados Unidos! (: Noté que muchas personas fueron rechazadas pero con nosotros todo salió bien y solo le hicieron 4 preguntas y no pidieron ningún trabajo en papel y obtuvieron la aprobación (: Gracias RapidVisa y a Weng por todo. Vamos a hacer el AOS y eliminar el estado con ustedes! (: gracias"
