Who is Sync Visas?
Sync Visas is an immigration company that provides an immigration service to a number of countries; the UK, the USA, Germany, New Zealand, Australia, Denmark and Canada. They claim to have lawyers that work for them in the UK, the USA and they have immigration consultants that are registered with MARA, ICCRC and IAA (New Zealand Advisory Authority).
Sync Visas offers you free impartial advice and a free online assessment. They will only take on your case if you qualify for a visa and if you are eligible.
Sync Visas claims to have years of experience and thousands of satisfied customers.
Something that we found concerning on the free online assessment is the “No Visa No Fee Guarantee” as this may give people the wrong impression. In the refund policy for Sync Visas they do state that they will not be responsible for any refunds made to a third party. Sync Visas also lists the situations in which a client will be refunded their money. Surely their statement, “No Visa No Fee Guarantee” covers all situations?
A major problem that we have with this website is the fact that there is no mention of who their immigration consultants are or who their lawyers are. There are immigration organisation’s seals provided on the website but they don’t link you back to the related websites.
We searched for an RCIC agent on the ICCRC’s website and we came up empty handed. This is a major issue for us as Sync Visas has provided no indication whatsoever of who they work with and this is the main reason for us questioning the immigration company’s legitimacy.
Sync Visas provides immigration services to a number of countries yet they have failed yet again to provide information on who does each country’s immigration.
The information provided for each Canadian visa is also limited and doesn’t really help you understand what you need in order to qualify. There is a News page for Sync Visas but the last post is from 2014.
There are social media links on the website for Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram and Google+.
The Facebook page was created in 2014 and it has over 16 000 likes. Please note that Facebook likes can be bought. The posts to the page are regular and they are varied. They are not concentrated on Canadian immigration, which is a good thing. The traffic through the page isn’t very high and Sync Visas does not always reply to questions posted.
The Twitter account has a small following but the posts are similar to that of the Facebook account. The LinkedIn account has the basic information on it with a few posts from the Facebook account.
The website for Sync Visas is easy to use and provides you with very basic information. The fact the Sync Visas has failed to provide any indication of who their immigration consultants and lawyers are is very worrying.
There is not a single name mentioned on the website and this is often an indication that an immigration company may be a scam. We would advise that you proceed with caution when using this company as they have failed to provide the most vital pieces of information.
