Andy S

We are so very happy with Colombian Visa Services and Daniela! Years ago we were able to do our documents ourselves and it was so easy. As the years went, we had to get help with different visa services. The last we had was really not efficient and let my wife's documents lapse and it was a 6 month nightmare to get everything fixed. Daniela really KNEW what she was doing, was super helpful and professional and was so eager to help! My wife's renewal came in the VERY NEXT DAY! I highly recommend Colombian Visa Services to anyone who needs help getting or renewing their documents! Fast! Efficient! Knowledgeable! And very reasonably priced! And best of all, Daniela speaks English perfectly!
