I turned to Ivan for help to find out if there was a ban on entry and if my payment for the fine had come. Since more... than one service did not give me any answer, and I had plans to come to Ukraine as soon as possible, I turned to Ivan for help and he helped me find out all the necessary information in a short time and I managed to arrive as planned. All the necessary documents were sent to me by Ivan so that there would be no problems at the entrance, these documents were necessary and everything went quickly and easily! I want to say thank you very much for solving my problem and doing everything possible for my arrival! I recommend everyone who has problems with the entrance to immediately contact Ivan for help, do not try to solve it yourself, as you can make many mistakes that I made, but we were able to prevent them in time!read more

До того як ми з батьком моєї дитини, звернулись до пана Івана, він отримав 5 відмов в отримані візи до України. Пан... Іван добре виконав свою роботу, завжди був на зв’язку, консультував у всіх питаннях, і навіть йшов нам на поступки і корегував підготовлені документи декілька разів (в зв’язку зі змінами через карантин та іншими обставинами). Завдяки йому мій наречений отримав візу з першого разу після чергової подачі документів. Щиро рекомендую пана Івана, дуже йому вдячна і задоволена виконаною роботою.read more

Иван очень быстро помог решить сложный вопрос отмены запрета на въезд в Украину. Сама процедура заняла около 2 с... половиной недель. Он постоянно был на связи, терпеливо отвечал на все вопросы. Шел на контакт и встречался, когда это было нужно. В конце концов, он просто очень вежливый, приятный в общении и адекватный юрист.

My daughter was denied students visa to Ukraine where she intends to study medicine. I had provided every document... including invitation letter from the university, bank statements , sponsorship letter and others needed for Ukraine visa to VFS global ,Dakar. Yet the embassy says we did not prove the purpose of stay in Ukraine ( as per the refusal letter)I felt unfairly treated and decided to make an appeal. Having no idea as to how to write the appeal letter, I went to the internet and googled " Immigration lawyers in Ukraine" I found Armax group and met them on WhatsApp. Immediately they swung into action, in a space of one month the passport with the visa securely sticked in it was in my mail box !!! Armax group are pragmatic and results oriented immigration agency. I recommend them to all who need their services. Ekow Brakwah ( Guinea Bissau)read more
