I've traveled pretty extensively, and have arranged my visas in the past. This is the first time I've used an expediter to obtain and visa, and my experience with Passports and Visas was extremely positive. After I applied for their services, they provided me with a straight forward checklist along with a Fed Ex shipping label. Once I shipped the materials they needed via Fed Ex, I was kept informed via email of all progress. I had my visa within about a week of shipping materials, and I was really impressed with how fast and smoothly everything went. I would recommend this service to everyone I know that could benefit from using it.
