About Countrywide Visas
The company opened its doors on the 22nd of August, 2015 in New Delhi, India. Since then, they claim to have served more than 10,000 clients with an 80% success rate. The four main principles of the company are professional consulting, valuable ideas, excellent timing, and budget-friendly. Countrywide Visas has an entire page on its website dedicated to the people, referred to as “experts”, who work at the company. It immediately drew our attention seeing as qualified lawyers or Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultants (RCICs) are essential to the legal operation of an immigration consultancy. Unfortunately, we could not find any lawyers working at the company nor could we find any RCICs linked to them on the ICCRC (Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council) registry. This is a big problem because they are the only people who are legally allowed to charge for immigration assistance. The company offers immigration assistance to a number of countries, these include:
- New Zealand;
- Hong Kong;
- The Schengen area; and
Website and Services
We were quite impressed by the extensive information about Canadian immigration that we found on their website. Countrywide Visas goes into quite a bit of depth on most of the popular Canadian immigration programs and for this reason, we believe that the company definitely has at least some expertise in the field. Of course, they can improve by including a more complete list of immigration options available to prospective immigrants but for now, we are impressed nonetheless. Apart from assisting with the long list of Canadian immigration options, like the Federal Skilled Program, Family Sponsorship, and Federal Trades Program, the company provides a long list of relevant immigration services. Countrywide Visas provide the following services:
- Form filling and pre-assessment;
- Language coaching;
- Professional counseling;
- Profile marketing;
- Documentation assistance;
- Refusal case analysis; and
- Cover letter drafting
Links to the social media platforms of Countrywide Visa’s can be found in the footer of the website. The Facebook page has a steady following of just under 10,000 people. The posts are very regular and relevant to immigration, which is good.
Countrywide Visas has a bunch of testimonials on their website from satisfied clients, some of them include video footage. As always, remember to take these lightly, because they could have been written by anyone. No company will include negative reviews of themselves on their website, so do not take these testimonials too seriously.
All in all, we were left with a positive impression of Countrywide Visas. It is clear that they stay up to date with trends in Canadian immigration and they have an in-depth understanding of the various programs. We enjoyed that they offer such an extensive list of services, including a free Technical Assessment.
