Excellent service by Anthony. Above and beyond expectation. At times of unknown, he was always there to clarify and provide information. From what was a complex matter, he was able to provide me with detail instructions and clear all my doubts, made the impossible into possible. I truly appreciate what he has done for me and my partner. Applying for the visa and awaiting for the result is a long and stressful process but Anthony was there to help out every bit and even was there to comfort us when all seems negative. I’m glad I had him to take care for my application and I don’t think anyone else could do a better job. Thanks once again for what you have done for us!!!
