Back in 2019 My partner and I was still not sure what we want to do and that’s when I booked my consultation with Indah, she explained what options we have and what the process will take in each options.

Long story short, my partner ended up proposed me and we got married on the 9th March and yes we applied for partner visa, the process was really smooth and Sandra Puri she is the one that helped me through the process, she’s really patient and informative, when she didn’t get my response from my email she will ring me to make sure I got the last email she sent (I’m so bad with my email).

October 19th 2021 when my PR visa granted!

What a relief, just 1 less thing I need to worry about. Hope this pandemic will end soon and everyone will be able to reunite with their loved one, their family and friends ❤️Thank you Onederland, thank you mba Indah and Sandra, you just made this easier for us.

I highly recommend ONE derland Consulting, both Indah and Sandra assist my husband to receive his spouse visa and the permenant residency within 4 months during this pandemic period.

It is a miracle of what they have done.

Sandra was really patient and she reminded us of what needs to be prepared and submitted stage by stage.

Indah was so busy but she is also just a phone call away.

I appreciate of what they have done for us, they really tried to help our family to unite during this difficult time.

ONE derland Consulting is the best and most responsible immigration agent.
