Hi. I am Rajesh from India. Mr Nikola and his team handled my LMIA and work permit application. I was impressed by the way they filed my application and the whole process. My work permit was rejected 6 years back and this is my second time. They make sure that I submitted all my documents and corrected a few things. I followed them and took their advice seriously submitting my documents. Mr Nikola was very patient and constantly was in touch with me regarding my application.i would like to thank Jeethna( admin) as well in this regard.

I strongly recommend Nikola (CIVS) and his team for immigration and work permit process.

Good Luck
