SATISFIED CLIENT STORIES
I am very thankful to ILE as because of them I got my 3 years of Essential Skills Visa. I especially thank Mr VIneet who has been very helpful and attentive throughout my visa process. My case was quite complicated yet I got my visa in less than 15 days. Again thank you very much for your great service and all the best for your future endeavors.
My essential skills visa has been approved in just 20 days . Many thanks to to veenet sir. They r very easy in communication and providing step by step information.
Thanks to Vineet for helping me with my complex situation and getting my Visa approved.
I must say Vineet has all the knowledge and skills to entertain any difficult situation that may arise. After my employer sold the company and I was made redundant, my bad time started. I was living in New Zealand in breach of my Visa conditions and INZ declined my Work Visa application. At that time Mr Vineet took my case for a very reasonable fee and successfully applied my application. I strongly recommend Vineet for your future Visa application.
Excellent service was what we received from Vineet. He quickly helped us sort and file our documents for an online application. We were pressed for time for our application, most of our documents were physical, and thanks to his aid the majority of our online application was finalized within two hours.
Thank you once again Vineet, for helping us with our application.
Thank you to Vineet, he helped me convert from my Visit Visa to a Work Visa. I was not wrong to trust him as he is very honest and hardworking Immigration Adviser. He will give you the best advice for your particular case and will not give you false information or even misrepresent facts to you. I highly recommend you to have a chat with him, as he will never disappoint.
It has been such a pleasure working with Vineet Talwar in applying for my husband’s work visa and residency. He is always more than willing to go the extra mile for his customers and his level of work is exceptional. I have nothing but great things to say about his service and will continue to recommend him to anyone seeking help with their applications. My husband’s case was a difficult one as he had been convicted with drink driving. Vineet made sure that we were able to apply for a character waiver which in the end was the final decision needed for his case. Every question along the way he's been able to answer for us and so it's really taken the stress out of the whole process. Thank you Vineet for your wonderful service!
I would like to take this opportunity to refer Mr Vineet as an honest, trustworthy, knowledgeable, and hardworking Immigration Adviser.
I had several issues: I quit my job while on Employer Specific Work Visa and never informed Immigration about it. In breach of my Visa conditions, I worked for a different employer. I took Immigration advise from unlicensed person and never disclosed it to Immigration. In my previous Visa application, I did not mention about these breaches to Immigration.
When I contacted Mr Vineet, he realised me how it all could affect my future Visa applications. Despite knowing all these facts, he took my case and worked smartly to prove me innocent. Ultimately, I got my three years Essential Skills Work Visa as Office Manager. No questions were ever asked by INZ. If you have any Bona Fide concerns or Character Issues, I highly recommend that you have a chat Mr Vineet.
I am thankful to Vineet for his hard work that resulted in getting 3 years Essential Skill Work Visa for me and my family. I am working in one of Retail Furniture Store for my company. Immigration issued a PPI saying they were not satisfied with my position as store manager and wanted to issue a Visa for one year as Store Supervisor. I talked to Mr Vineet who guided me through the process and asked to gather specific documents showing my job responsibilities. These documents along with a letter written by Mr Vineet resulted in proving that my positioning in fact related to Retail Manager's position and Immigration issued 3 years’ work visa to me and my family. I strongly recommend Mr Vineet for your next Visa endeavour.
Got a tremendous experience of a true client service from them. Till yesterday morning, my expectations of getting the visa was 1/10 because of my past history in the immigration, but I can’t thankful an enormous effort of Mr. Vineet Talwar for helping me in all ways he could.
He is a recommendation from me.
I am very thankful to Mr Vineet from core of my heart for what he has done for me in last two years. When I first met Mr Vineet, I was unlawful and had no status In New Zealand. Mr Vineet carefully listened to everything I had to say and bombarded with a number of question to assess my situation. He conclude, he could help. He initially submitted a Visitor Visa under section 61 which was approved. Later he submitted Work Vis under partnership and lately I got my Resident Visa. I highly recommend Mr Vineet no matter what kind of situation you are in. He is very truthful in his approach and always keep you on safer side.
I am beyond happy and massive thankful to Mr. Vineet Talwar for helping me with my visa application. I got my essential skill visa approved yesterday. My case was not very easy , but Mr. Talwar has presented my visa application so well that it took only 20 days to get approved.
He is very professional consultant, highly knowledgeable and a very genuine guy. He is not like other lawyers, who if giving free consultation, is there only for limited questions for limited time. Vineet answered my every question and made sure I know everything about what he is going to do with my case as he has explained everything to me in detail. He is really very helpful.
Keep up the good work Vineet. Wishing you all the very best for your future endeavours👍😊. Once again thank you very much Vineet for your assistance 😊
