“The entire team was incredible! Super organized, responsive, knowledgeable and helpful. The entire process is overwhelming and changes often but Bordr kept me updated throughout the months leading up to my visa application appointment.”
“I do not know how Expats handled the visa process before Bordr. They are top-notch! Every time I had a question as I headed into the sometimes precarious process, Bordr would get back to me immediately. Phenomenal customer service.”
