I recently had a Visa Renewal done with Colombia Legal & Associates SAS and I couldn’t be happier with the results. The service was prompt, professional, and exceeded my expectations. I would definitely use this service again in the future and recommend it to others. I wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude for the amazing job by Lorena. Her service was outstanding, and she went above and beyond to ensure that I had a great experience. I would highly recommend Colombia Legal & Associates SAS to anyone in need of a Retirement Visa. Thank You Lorena!

Me desplacé a Medellín para conocer a James y tomé una buena decisión al seleccionarlo para solicitar una visa de pensionado. La comunicación, transparencia y diligencia fueron una constante de inicio a fin. Mi visa fue probada en un par de semanas y quiero hacer un reconocimiento especial de Paula Vasquez quien siempre estuvo pendiente de mi caso. Muchas gracias a un buen equipo de trabajo.

I reached out to them today to ask for advice on different visa options (I currently have one which doesn’t meet my needs). I spoke with Lorena who in the space of 30 min was able to clarify and propose the best options for my needs. Now I feel comfortable in proceeding with the best option. I must also add that earlier in the year I was in touch with a different agency who were unhelpful and misleading. Visas by James definitely feels different from the start. Professional, knowledgeable and friendly. I recommend.
