What our clients say

I was looking for a professional, skilled and empathetic Immigration Lawyer to assist with the visa application for my family. I randomly googled on the internet, communicated with a few but was not convinced they would deliver what I wanted in a suitable time frame. When I was rather desperate, I inquired with a few of my countrymen who had recently brought into the country their families. They spoke very highly of the service that Tobias and his team at Uvisa Immigration Specialists gave them. I must admit, the praise/accolades made me curious and decided there and then to get in touch with Tobias whose details I had been given. The approach-ability of Tobias struck a chord with me and I saw a light at the end of the visa application tunnel, metaphorically speaking. Cherie, one of the staff members worked with me through the whole process, explaining with patience this and that which I wanted to know, collecting documentations required for the process, while fixated on the goal and time-frame to achieve the desired outcome. The general visitor’s visa I had applied for was granted in a very short space of time, thanks to the thoroughness and professionalism of Cherie. I will definitely be engaging Tobias/Cherie at Uvisa Immigration Specialists for permanent stay and work visa applications. My first experience with them was hussle free and I confidently expect the same service in the future. For you guys out there, for a hassle free, stress free, results oriented visa application experience, Uvisa Immigration Specialists is the go to company.
