About Y-Axis

Y-Axis is an Indian immigration, education, and careers consulting company that was founded in 1999 by Xavier Augustin who is also the CEO of the company. On the website, Y-Axis states that they were once known as the H-1B company (see below). We aren't clear why they opted to change their name but we do know that they were originally a recruitment agency for internationals. The CEO, Xavier Augustin, speaks about Indians being in high demand and that they are the world’s raw material for today’s modern economy. Y-Axis claims to have helped over 1 million people since the beginning of their business and they have offices across India, in the UK, Melbourne and New Zealand. How they have helped these individuals without any evidence of an active RCIC agent is worth questioning. Y-Axis claims to work with accredited and regulated lawyers in their London office and their partner offices in Australia and New Zealand. They also state on the website that no other company understands overseas careers as they do.

The Website

The website for Y-Axis is professional looking and contains a great deal of information for you to look through. One thing that we can fault the website is that there isn’t enough information about immigration programs and visas. The information supplied is very vague. We are very happy to say that Y-Axis has all their important online documents; privacy and refund policies, anti-fraud policy and terms and a conditions page. Y-Axis will help you find a job, immigrate, get you a travel visa, you name it, they claim to do it. They also offer extra services besides immigration such as resume writing, LinkedIn Marketing, and Job search services. This is all good and well but who does their immigration processes for all of these countries? Are these individuals regulated by the appropriate boards and councils? There are no immigration seals displayed anywhere on the website and the only name that is provided is that of the CEO. This is worrying as it is a vital piece of information for any immigration company to have. We had a chat with a consultant but even he was unable to answer any of our questions regarding Y-Axis’ RCIC agents or any immigration consultants. We tried entering the company name into the government ICCRC website, however, we came up with no results. There are online assessments for you to fill out and check your eligibility for each country and they ask pretty basic questions.

Social Media

Y-Axis has just about every social media link from their website; Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, YouTube, and Instagram. The Facebook account for Y-Axis was created in 2009 and it has 242,086000 likes on the page. The page has regular posts and they all relate to immigration, news on immigration and basic advertising of the company and their services. They have an active reviews page which has received a 3,7 rating. The comments are mostly positive however there are some concerning comments about clients who claim that they have been cheated and there doesn’t seem to be much interaction with the followers. The Twitter account follows the same pattern as the Facebook page. They have 9,336 followers and tweet relevant content regularly however we found it strange that they have received almost no interaction which makes us suspicious about the validity of the number of followers. The LinkedIn account has over 16,232 followers and it has the same articles that are posted on the other social media platforms however once again there is little to no user interaction. There is a YouTube account for Y-Axis and it is full of videos that update you on each country’s immigration laws. There are also video testimonials from previous clients. The first video on the YouTube account that we looked at had a lot of information about Canada’s new immigration laws and applications but it was uploaded four months ago. The Pinterest page has a very small following of 68 however it has relevant posts with useful information. Their Instagram account has 2,228 followers however the posts do not receive much user interaction.


Our Conclusion

Y-Axis has a great deal to offer any prospective client that is looking to immigrate, study somewhere or find a job. One thing that is a serious issue for us is that there are no immigration consultants mentioned on the website or an RCIC agent. We did an RCIC agent search with the company name and we came up empty-handed. Y-Axis has a lot of services and there are client testimonials provided for you to look through but they lack the vital accreditation and not enough immigration and visa information.
