Philippines-Flag-64-RapidVisa.comI think this company is a great tool for gathering and submitting documentation for an immigrant visa. The staff are always there, no matter the issue to help whenever and however they can.

This was a grueling and frustrating process dealing with government red tape, inequities in services, and the current political conflicts of immigration in the United States as of now.

If we did not have RapidVisa, this would have been unbearable, as many problems arise from what goes on in the beginning, and how the application, accompanying paperwork, and other random incidents particular to your case must be in proper order and completion to prevent this.

To illustrate the gravity of what I am talking about, think of every communication that is needed with the government on the US side or Philippines, Hong Kong(beware, they take 4 weeks to do ANYTHING) or anywhere, takes at LEAST 60 days.

So, be real, and don’t get stuck on false hope and setting yourselves up for failure by thinking stuff like, “oh yea, 6 months, my hugs&kisses will be here.” Don’t fool yourself. This is an AVERAGE, and not always spot on.

Lets not forget, this process that held us up was the GOVERNMENT and their nitpicky, single-minded, intellectually devoid, cavalier, sloppy, forgetful, wasteful, ignorant, dysfunctional, and inefficient nature, and NOT RapidVisa. RapidVisa makes this stupid, eternal, horrible process WAAAY less horrible, by preparing you for your case properly in the BEGINNING, so that you may actually see an END to it all—trust us.

This process took about a year and a half. Without RapidVisa—I would give it another year on top of that, no joke, by the way things went with communication with the governmental entities, to go on a wild goose chase for the government/immigration/NVC/USCIS/US Embassy/whatever and all their stupid paperwork they lazily, and stubbornly DEMAND from you, like police records (HongKong LOVES to lose things. Took me an additional 4 months because they ‘lost’ my package[the foreign bank draft HongKong DEMANDS or it takes them another month if you pay in another way{have fun with that one}], and sent it to the wrong place 3 times… thanks Hong Kong! 😀 ) and countless other stupid things they like to have placed under their nose on a velvet pillow, that they can much more easily gain themselves, with all their spying technology the rest of the world is so upset about—come on, US Immigration, Come on.

That being considered, I think that RapidVisa is an excellent concept and I have only seen it improve as time has gone on. The staff is definitely the company’s greatest asset, in addition to the service RapidVisa provides, and was a definite help regarding my immigration process. I am truly thankful for the service of simple human contact and endless patience that they seem to have–this is crucial to a separated couple, as stress and frustration with the ‘system’ can be overwhelming at times, and when we needed to speak with a human being, if not just to do some venting and a little bit of freaking out (but totally not directed at RapidVisa, because they are the good guys:) ), a human being was there, free of charge. Hopefully this does not change as they grow, which is without a doubt, considering the rate of growth I have seen in just this last 2 years. The application process, after it was finished, RapidVisa was still there to help guide us and tell us what to expect. They really made things easy on the mind this way, and eliminated some stress.

I think that immigration should be simple, but it is not, unfortunately.

RapidVisa makes it simple

Starting out, this process can be complicated and difficult to get started, and leave a couple not knowing where to start, and unsure about what to expect, but RapidVisa puts to rest these worries. They literally hold your hand through the process, telling you what to send and how to send it. The staff are very patient, kind, and professional, and pleasant to interact with.

This service, essentially fool-proofs the whole application process. It is totally worth every penny, and would recommend RapidVisa to anyone considering this process. They are always improving the web interface, providing an easier user experience, resulting in greater functionality and streamlined communication between separated spouses/fiancées, the ability print required paperwork, and much more. Dominic, Albert, Johben, thank you! For those I failed to mention, I apologize as there are more and more of you being hired on, which shows a successful company, and productive people. Great job, keep it up, and from both of us Lerma and Matt Short, thank you!
