Thanks Andrew – sounds like a win-win all round! I would like to add that this outcome could not have been achieved without your attention in this matter, firstly in your initial follow-up; and then in the detailed documents and response when requested yesterday. This is an example of the professionalism which enhances our working relationship with RMAs, and ultimately benefits our clients. Thanks again.

Kathy

Firstly, me and my family are very greatful for the work and effort you extended to me during the period of the processing our Residence Visa. From the initial contact I had , I had been assisted wisely on the options that I have to take up to the very challenging part of securing my Chinese Police Clearance where I described it as if I was press against the wall already. But still I received more options from Miguel, Zahira and the rest of the staff. You were always there when I needed most of your assistance. You all work an extra effort to assist and guide me through till the goal of our visa were achieved and that makes your service a very special one.
