Sandy Chen has been a great help towards securing my sponsorship visa. She provided timely updates and prompt responses to any queries 🙂. I would highly recommend her service for any visa related applications.
Sandy Chen is very helpful and professional!
I spoke to Kerin Jitla today and she was very helpful, knowledgable and kind. I can definitely recommend talking to her about Visa options!
The team at Gilton played a pivotal role in both our applications for business nomination and employee nomination sponsorship.Great turnaround time, easy to deal with and very personable throughout the process. Highly recommend
Gilton Valeo played a pivotal role in facilitating my sister's skilled sponsorship visa application for the Permanent visa subclass 186. With my sister, a British citizen aspiring to relocate to Australia and pursue a career as a Registered Nurse, their expertise was invaluable. Assigned to oversee our application, Xueying exhibited remarkable responsiveness in her email correspondence and demonstrated a high level of accommodation during our query phone calls, ensuring that all our concerns and clarifications were addressed promptly and comprehensively. Her thoroughness in responses instilled confidence in us throughout the process. Notably, my sister's application received approval within an impressively short span of two months from submission, a testament to the efficiency and effectiveness of Gilton Valeo's services. We are immensely grateful for Xueying's professionalism and dedication, which contributed significantly to the success of our application.
Response from the owner: Amazing feedback! Thank you Kristine!
They helped me with getting my 186 PR visa. The agents are very helpful and I could ask them the silliest of the questions without hesitation. They were also very quick in lodging the application and letting me know about any communication from the immi department.
I would love to say thank you to Fiona and Sonia you guys so amazing and professional.Thank you guys !! For everything to helping me and my husband. You guys working so hard for us. We're appreciated ❤️😘
Gilton Valeo Lawyers and in particular Dr. Ahad Minto have been amazing in all aspects of the service.We spoke over the phone multiple times where Mr Ahad would explain to me all the requirements, stages and expected time frames of my application in the most professional and honest way.He would not submit anything if it wasn't properly reviewed and prepared by him in the most professional form.As a result, everything went smooth and I got the desired outcome, with very short waiting time, probably because of the impeccable way the application had been prepared by Ahad.I highly recommend Ahad Minto and Gilton Valeo Lawyers to whoever is seeking a professional guide who they can trust, being sure that they are in good hands.

Response from the owner: Thanks Simon! Glad to have you back in Aus and on your way bigger and brighter things!
Troy and his team assisted me with my initial relocation from Europe to Australia (subclass 457 Visa) in 2017. Since then Gilton Valeo has been helping me to successfully renew my visa as well as transfer my visa to different companies as well as roles. I kept bringing Gilton Valeo with me as I moved jobs twice. Despite working for large corporations that all had existing relationships with other immigration lawyers, both companies were happy to use Gilton Valeo based on their experience amd service quality. As far as I know both companies continued to use Gilton Valeo beyond my engagement due to their superior service compared to what the incumbents had provided.Fast forward, I just obtained Permanent Residency under the Global Talent stream. Gilton Valeo was incredibly helpful in mapping out options and building a roadmap to help me work towards this status. I am a Management Consultant in the Software / Cloud / AI space.I can’t recommend to work with Gilton Valeo enough as they are very professional, have a very good understanding of the system & pathways, and have industry relationships required to get things done.
Response from the owner: Congrats again Camillo! Thank you for your continued trust in us as we navigated through from temporary to permanent visa status. All the best!
I liked the help and support provided by them in my recent visa application. I would highly recommend them as your immigration lawyer because they are very responsive and they are always dedicated to provide you the right service.
Response from the owner: Thanks for your feedback Prabhat! Congrats again!
