“Rip off liars”

Written on: 22/07/2014 by 226Dowling (1 review written)

The are a complete bunch of rip off artists. They took me for £1500 and did nothing. They people assigned to help me didn't know what they were talking about then stop replaying to my e-mails. I can only assume they are criminals as I can't see any legitimate business doing this. All I can say is anyone thinking about using a visa company what ever you do don't use this one, better to just burn your money and save the effort… Read Full Review

This has happened to me and my partner. Been trying to contact them for the past month and not hear anything. I am think about contacting watchdog and a reporting this. As they have all my partners details. Still want to travel but concerned about all visa companies now

“They spun a bunch of lies about the visa requirements,...”

Written on: 24/02/2014 by amethystUK (1 review written)

They spun a bunch of lies about the visa requirements, made me believe I was eligible to apply (Permanent Residency Visa / Federal Skilled Work Visa) and had scored fantastically high on the assessment. They then took £1,500 to start the application and handle everything on my behalf. This began with a consultation with a caseworker, who would give me "expert knowledge and guidance" on the visa process and in depth assessment. The call lasted 17 minutes and he couldn't answer any of my… Read Full Review

Sarahsum's Response to amethystUK's Review

Hi I am just currently finding that after taking my £1500 for the same as you I was told I had passed the exams I took and am now not getting my phone calls or e-mails responded too.

Can you advise what the legal team you have consulted have advised?

Many thanks

I took them to small claims court and they never responded, so I was awarded a CCJ by default. Since then CityVisas have vacated the office in Birmingham and are pretty much untraceable. I have searched for them on the companies house website and contacted every address that was listed for them - none are trading addresses, they are all registered addresses - which basically means a post box and no one working there. A debt collection also looked into their records and they have submitted their end of year papers to companies house, they also already have 6 other CCJs against them.

Basically they are a trick company, who take people's money and then cease trading it seems and then open up a new company and start again. Each time they register a new company they get a clean slate and all previous CCJs are void when then close the previous company.

I've consulted small claims court, debt collectors and solicitors and without a trading address there is nothing that can be done.

It's wrong that companies can get away with this and take honest hardworking people's money over and over! The system is seriously flawed and it's unbelievably frustrating to be so helpless!

Did you pay by credit card? The only possible option you might have is asking them to reverse the transaction and raise a dispute for you for failure to deliver the service.

Sorry I can't help!

No luck I'm afraid - please see my response to another comment on the battle I've been through.

How long ago did you speak with someone and pay? Try to get the credit card company to reverse the transaction if you can.

Same thing has happened to me too - also taking them to court! Tricked me out of £1,500, lied about the requirements of the visa and now refuse to respond.

“Really great people to work with!!”

Written on: 10/07/2013 by AndrewHounslow (1 review written)

Earlier this year i applied for a permanent residency visa with City Visa's, I payed them £2000, and honestly it is the best investment that i have ever made. Not only was my visa successful, it came through very quickly providing that normally the applications are meant to take 9-11 months. i was dealing with a young lady who was very informative and worked on my case to the best standards. Before starting my application with City Visas i did have some reservations as i saw a few bad reviews… Read Full Review

“Fantastic job on my immigration application”

Written on: 07/05/2013

I would like to thank everyone at City Visas for all the hard work they put in to help me get my student visa for Canada. I today received a letter from the Canadian embassy stating that I have received my visa. I am over the moon, and would like to thank everyone at city visas for all that they have done. From start to finish my caseworker handled my case with diligence, and displayed a lot of knowledge about the process. She was also able to walk me through the process as this was the… Read Full Review
