    5 star review  Needs migration went above and beyond to ensure my cousin’s permanent resident visa was approved. We knew we had to be patient and that isn’t easy when waiting for a visa, but we followed their instructions to the letter and being off-shore her visa was approved in only a few months. Subhanshu and Renu responded promptly to our emails and their communication with the immigration department explaining matters was both professional and eloquent. I would recommend Needs Migration without any hesitation and for everyone who is out there trying to do this on their own, I’d say stop and make the appointment for a consultation, you won’t regret it. I can’t thank you you enough Subhanshu & Renu and their Team at Needs Migration! 💐💐💕
