The process was quite painless, they got in touch to collect documents and go over details but most communication was done by email. We received the renewal without any issues.

She was straight to the job, focused on the matter and had an excellent transparent work process, a reasonable fee and no hidden charges. She is very helpful, confident and had the best communication. We got our parents' visa in one go! Thank you very much for the excellent job.
