Now that I am back in SK I wanted to send you this little Thank You note. I had a wonderful time in St. Petersburg with my German friends and everything went well with my visa.
It is indeed a splendid city with very kind people!!!
With kindest Season's Greeting
On November 13th I went to Anyvisa's office in Vancouver to delegate my whole student visa application process. I was promised to get my passport back with the visa stamped on it on November 20th and deliver on their promise they have!!!!
The first thing I noticed when I entered the office was the "stress free signs" on the door and over the front desk. Next I was greeted by the kind and bright smile of Alina who directed me to Marina. I was in and out including the waiting time in 17 minutes!!! Marina filled out the whole application for me, organized all of my student visa's supporting documents and mailed them through the Fedex rushed service for me. I did not have to do a thing! Way to go for efficiency and effectiveness which was a great time saver for me.
During processing I had a bunch of questions to ask about the quickest way and where to go to obtain the blood test, and also regarding the visa category due to a change I had in my travel plans. Almost, every email I sent to Marina was replied to within a couple of business hours and when I had to get an answer right away I called ANYVISA's office and Alina would transfer me to Marina within a few seconds who will then answer all the questions I had.
On November 20th around 10:30 AM I received a call from Marina who informed me of the good news that my visa had arrived from the Russian consulate and that it was ready for pickup!!! I was exhilarated since I had booked my flight on the following day and had already purchased the ticket. I then rushed to Anyvisa's office to pickup my visa and while there Marina double checked again the information on my visa to make sure it was correct. I was in and out within five minutes, including the waiting time! I also noticed that they offered many other visa services for many other countries...and being the world traveler that I am, I will absolutely be hiring them again in the future for my visa needs and I highly recommend them for anyone who doesn't have the time, patience, nor wants to go through the headaches and hassle that any visa application might entail.
