DELHI / NEW DELHI
“My research for Australian PR started in March 2015, talking to umpteen consultants in India apart from tearing down Google. No one could instil the confidence in me that I was looking for. And then, pat on my back, come Jan 2016, courtesy my tenacity of internet research, I found Anna. After a series of long e-mails, we had our first conversation. He did mention a few facts that every one shied away saying or deliberately hid from stating earlier and as with everything else in my life, went by my instinct to sign up for the PR process in April’16.
Anna is immaculate at his work to the extent of correcting a ‘.’ and ‘-‘. No one will be blamed for complaining of him being a ‘perfectionist’ of course for all the right reasons. He has immense patience to answer all queries, however stupid they may be and believe me I had many. In case if one runs out of patience since this PR process is a long drawn affair, he can send no less than 50 quotes on ‘Patience’.
Many documents, many scans, signatures and 5 months later, the second call from Anna at 9 am confirming and congratulating on the Visa grant was a sweet nothing. Miracle do happen and if personified, the name would be Anna!
Dear Anna–heartfelt thank you from us for all your efforts, guidance and support during this entire journey. Our relation is not over yet. Planning to be in Australia this December. We have to get our parents to be with us and we are crystal clear that it would be you, once again!
