Thank You Rayford,
Many thanks to Rayford for their expertise in guiding me to obtain my Subclass 475 Visa.
It has been a long wait for us, there are times we were thinking and having doubts over the decision. If not for Mr. Cheah’s expert handling with my company and very often given me assurance and calmness, I would have been stressed out.
Special thanks as well to James for his expertise and advice, and once again to Mr. Cheah.
Forever Grateful
