Testimonials from Mexico

I knew nothing about the process when we started to apply for K1 visa, rapidvisa walked us through step by step and they were 100% correct on everything. My fiancé arrived in late October and we are now married! I highly recommend Rapid Visa!

I used Rapid Visa for both K-1 Visa and, Adjustment of status after we were married. I am not going to tell you that this process is fast. But I believe without Rapid Visa I may still be trying to get things done. Rapid Visa knows what they are doing and they are always available to answer questions. I can not begin to thank them for all their help. By the way I started the process around 1/15 and had the K-1 done around 11/15. I am not sure if I alone would have got it done yet. Thanks Again

Hello Rapid Visa,

I just want to report to you that we got our green card for my wife in about the exact time you predicted. I have to confess that I was intimidated by the process but you made it all seem so simple. You all know your stuff. Job well done.
