"A big thank you to Matthew and the folks at Vancouver Visas. They helped us navigate the difficulties of the PR Spousal Sponsorship and helped us out in a pinch (her current visa was expiring after we had failed to navigate the the application ourselves). We found Matthew to be very knowledgeable, personable and able to make us feel at ease through the whole process. The best part was that the visa came in the time he said it would without any hick-ups."

- Alec Pearson

"It was such an awesome experience to have Matthew as our consultant. He is extremely knowledgeable about immigration law and knows exactly what to do. I received my PR approval (spousal sponsorship application) after 3 months and I couldn't believe how fast it was to get approved as a permanent resident. I will most definitely come back for my citizenship application. I highly recommend Matthew and his services to everyone. Thank you so much Matthew!"

- William Tourn

"We, like most people, did consider doing our Permanent Resident application ourselves. In hindsight, there were a 100 things that we would have done incorrectly. Matthew saw all of them up front and ensured that the application went through without a problem. He is great to work with and showed kindness and patience even when we were panicking. Thank you Matthew!"

- Theo Graham

Because of that straight to the point approach, with the latest info regarding your case, they gain your trust with an ease, so at the end of the day you know you made the right choice!

Thank you, you turned my PR application from a nightmare into a dream!"

- Marin Ujdur

"I don't have enough words to say thank you to Matthew. He is one of the very few people who is completely devoted to his job. Completely honest and very straightforward. He and his team made my dream come true!
I knew I was in good hands as soon as I met him. Highly recommended.
Matthew Iwama - you are the best!!"

- Katarina Zdesic

"Having such an Unusual job with very unusual travel patterns I didn't even know how to start the permanent residency process. With complete professionalism Matthew and the Vancouver visa team went the extra mile and delivered exactly what they said they would.

The service is second to none, the cost is very fair and I believe Vancouver Visas genuinely care about they clients, which in an age where people usually just want to take your money was great to experience. I would recommend them to anyone looking to start a new life here in Canada."

- Mike Stocks

"Matthew, Tara and the rest of the team were such a pleasure to work with: professional, hard-working, congenial, and prompt! I recommended them to a bunch of other friends who also had very positive experiences with them. Rest assured, you'll be in excellent hands with them!"

- Preeti Bhuyan

"We had a fantastic experience working with Matthew Iwama. My husband's Permanent Residency came through in pretty much the time that he said it would. He made sure we understood the process and knew what we had to hand in. It was a really smooth process and Matthew was always available to answer our questions and his advice was always useful. Would highly recommend him for your VIsa/PR/Immigration requirements. Trustworthy and genuine, glad we found him and had him handle our case."

- Stefany Mathias

"My wife and I became PR a few weeks ago and are really happy. Matthew and his team at Vancouver Visas were extremely professional and would always do its best and think in the best of our interests. His help went beyond the appointments and many times would assist us when he didn't really have to. We were really lucky to having him by our side during the whole application process!"
