Хочу поблагодарить компанию AR MAX GROUP, в частности Ивана за проделанную работу. Настоящий профессионал своего дела. Мне поставили запрет на въезд в Украину, совершенно не понятно по каким причинам, ведь я ничего не нарушал. Иван быстро во всем разобрался ( оказалось запрет могут поставить за... неоплаченный штраф, даже если его оплатил, но не предоставил квитанции куда надо ). В корокие сроки Иван решил мою проблему и добился анулирования запрета.read more

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. Он берется за сложные и оч сложные миграционные проблемы и успешно их решает. Это был приятный опыт сотрудничества для меня! Мои лучшие рекомендации!!read more

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

I would like to express my gratitude to Ivan Alexandrovich for his professional work!I have been cooperating with Mr. Ivan for a long time,for the first time we applied for legal assistance in 2019,when I was expecting a visa to Ukraine.With his professional approach to his work,I was able to obtain a D Visa and live with my family. Living on the territory of Ukraine,I faced a new problem,due to an error in the translation of the document,the temporary residence permit in Ukraine was canceled and withdrawn.Upon re-submission of documents,I was denied a temporary residence permit.And again, thanks to Ivan Aleksandrovich Goncharov,He were able to win a lawsuit in my favor!Due to the difficult path of waiting and fighting for my rights,I received a residence permit in Ukraine! Thank you Mr. Ivan for your constant support,professional work, you are a person who really works at the call of your heart! Me and my wife wish you career growth and win the cases that you undertake!

I just want to say thank you to Lawyer Ivan! I found him on google and after reading the reviews I was confident in his services. I wasn’t sure if I banned from entering Ukraine or not so He found out all that we needed to, got relevant documents and was able to sort the ban out in a very very short time. He’s professional, he’s well skilled and highly knowledgeable of his field of work, his prompt response and patience in explaining. He’s trustworthy, you can be sure he’s not gonna take your money and run away. Infact he doesn’t take any money until he finds out what the situation is with you then he renders his legal assistance afterwards. If you know anything about Ukraine, you should know it’s best to seek professional help in order to avoid a greater roadblock and financial loss. He’s the way to go, and let me tell you, he knows exactly what he’s doing. Very impeccable service. Please research, don’t try to us the back door, seek professional help and I’d recommend him 1000%!!!

If you are experiencing any visa problems or difficulty in obtaining an entry visa or temporary residence in Ukraine, don't waste your time and money to try and solve it yourself, you will not succeed!!!.Even if you use a foreign lawyer outside the borders of Ukraine, you will not succeed.I tried for more than three years to obtain an entry visa to Ukraine for medical treatment, it was simply refused by all Ukrainian authorities.No issue is unsolvable for Mr. Ivan Goncharov, he knows every comma and point of the Ukrainian law concerning Immigration and Visas.Follow his advice and pay his very reasonable fees, and within four to six weeks you'll be back in Ukraine.Francis Fairman.
