Visa First main clients come from Ireland. These clients are offered a variety of immigration services. Visa First also appears to offer a variety of alternative services as well. We did try to find authorized representatives specifically for Canadian immigration, but we could not find any mention of RCICs.
We did notice that on the site’s footer Visa First mentions awards they have received. Like the:
- Ernst and Young Entrepreneur Award;
- Deloitte Best Managed Company; and
- European Business Award
This seems great until we noticed the dates that these were awarded. The Ernst award was given nearly ten years ago. The Deloitte award, awarded in 2012, was the most recent. Whether the company has changed its policy or a change in management has occurred, it is hard to tell why no recent awards have been given to Visa First or why the site has not been updated to the more recent awards.
Social Media & Online Reviews
The website does not provide any links to their social media account, but we did find that they have a Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin account. The site has a very large number of reviews on their site, which is pretty standard practice for many companies. The customer reviews are positive and seem to revolve around the idea that their staff is professional and efficient. We did find some complaints online about the company on an Australian complaint board. Below are some of the issues customers had. Their Facebook page has a modest following of 51,238. It appears that the news they post on their website blog is the same as what they post on Facebook. They do not post regularly as the last post is dated to Jul 15. It seems that the review option on Visa First has not been enabled, so we cannot tell whether customers have had either a positive or negative experience with them. In comparison, their Twitter account has a very small following of only 1,148, since the account was created in 2008, which could be due to the minimal amount of tweets. When we first opened up their account, we were greeted by multiple posts about social media analytics, which had nothing to do with immigration. For such a large company, Visa First seems to have a very small professional staff, with only 28 employees on their LinkedIn account.
