We took a hard look at Apex Visas to see if they are the Indian immigration company of your dreams or your nightmares. The company was started in 2010 and has since grow with a number of offices in over 25 different locations across the globe.
The company says that the team has more than 20 years of expertise in “domain” to “ensure prompt and hassle free services.”
They focus on four main things, knowledge, experience, transparency and results to get the job done. We put this company to the test with our Apex Visas Immigration & Careers Consultancy review.
Services of Apex
The company offers immigration and landing services to many different countries. This covers visas like:
- Permanent resident visas;

- Business Visas
Listed under their “Trending Visas” section, the company has stated they help with visa applications for:
- Hong Kong;
- New Zealand;
- South Africa;
- The U.K.; and the
Apex’s after landing services cover job agencies, accommodation and personal guides of the countries.
The company also seems to have another branch which is designed for studying abroad called Apex Overseas Education. They advertise that they have a portfolio of over 300 universities in seven different countries and can help assist you in getting there.
RCICs or Immigration Lawyers?
We tried to locate any legal representatives like RCICs (Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultants) and immigration lawyers hired by the company. Sadly, we could not find any on the ICCRC (Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council) registry or mention of who may be involved in the immigration process.
Apex Visas’ Website
The website has a simple but basic design that makes it easy to get around. There are a few issues with the drop down menus that make navigation a bit difficult which is a minor issue the company needs to fix.
In terms of content, the company covers the basics of Express Entry nicely and goes into some detail. The only issue is that the information has not been updated. One of these examples can be seen by still referring to the old CIC (Citizenship and Immigration Canada), instead of the new name IRCC (Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada). The government updated the name in 2016.
We also noticed that some of the requirements and points system of Express Entry have not been updated either when it comes to the CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System).
We liked that the company has a blog that posts regularly about immigration news. Although basic, it does cover some good content.
We noticed that the site is secure against hackers, thanks to the HTTPS icon at the top of the screen. This was an added bonus so that you cannot lose your personal details to third party hackers.
We continued our Apex Visa Immigration & Careers Consultancy review and found their Terms and Conditions. The agreement covers the basic legal requirements and also has a short refund policy which doesn’t go into much detail about how you qualify for a refund. The refund is apparently done at the discretion of the company.
Social Media Reviews
We continued our Apex Visas Immigration & Careers Consultancy review by taking a look at the company’s image on social media. They have a surprisingly large number of platforms that they marketed off, from Twitter to Youtube and Google Plus.
The company has a Twitter account with only 3 followers. This could be because they only created the account in July of this year.
They do post regularly on this platform for the few months that they have been active. Besides that there is not much else to report on their account in terms of customer interaction.
The company’s Facebook account is much more impressive than their Twitter. Apex has over 76,200 followers, although the company is quite slow to respond to messages sent to them taking around a day to reply.
Besides a slow customer response time, the company seems to have some positive recommendations by customers, who gave them a 4.2 rating. The only downside to this is that only a total of four people have actually reviewed the company on their Facebook page.
The company posts customer reviews by quoting them in actual posts. This could just be an honest mistake rather than anything malicious.
Apex has a small number of subscribers, 270, on their Youtube account that was created some five years ago.
We watched a couple of their videos which were customer testimonials. Here is one of them.
The rest of the videos are very basic and had in some cases they have very little important information in them.
Other Online Reviews for Apex Visas
We hunted around for what other people had to say about the company and we found some customer reviews about the company that ranged from five stars all the way to one star ratings. Below are just a few of them:
In conclusion of our Apex Visas Immigration & Careers Consultancy review, we discovered some interesting things about the company. Besides the fact that the company has over 25 different offices scattered across the world, we found their site to be a little outdated in terms of content.
It was disappointing that the company does not have any record of authorized representatives hired by the company like an RCIC, immigration lawyer or CAPIC member. This does not help the company’s image, as these professionals are legally required when you charge for any Canadian immigration service.
Apex seems to be responsive to its customers and does reply to their comments, although this response can take up to a day on social media platforms like Facebook. We did like the number of followers Apex has, even though some of its accounts felt a little neglected.
