After a lot of enquiries I finally decided to go with Y axis and my consultant was Mr. Sudheer. I’m very glad to have my case assigned to him. He answered all my queries promptly and was very patient with me throughout the process

Hi There, I worked with Y-Axis for my Canadian PR and i got through it within 6 months. I was lucky enough to get my PR within 27 days after submitting the application. All this couldn’t have been possible without the right guidance by Sudheer T, the consultant who was assigned to me. I would personally like to recommend Sudheer T, for his work and the way he’s been patient with all my queries at each step. His knowledge about the process was commendable. I sincerely want to thank him for his support throughout.
