Subclass 190 – Skill-Nominated 

I made a random choice and selected them, but I was correct and it turned out to be an excellent experience filling my residency application through them. Michelle, Thara, Navi, Hafiza were always adaptable to my application scenarios and guided me thoroughly with the course of action towards migration.

I sincerly recommend them and I feel blessed to become a permanent resident.

Thank you !

Partner Visa 

I feel really hapy to write this review. My experience with Think Visa was really satisfactory. I started using Think Visa services in 2015 and i need to highlight the quality of the service they provide. Specifically I would like to express my graditude to Thara   for all her professionalism and dedication that she put in our application. She was always able to answer my enquires and more important she was able to give us confidence during all the process until finally our visa was granted. Thanks again and all the AIMS team!
