The onlinevisas.com claims to have software that will make tremendous applications and a high chance of success. I want to know if someone has encountered this company. I didn't find anything about them on google or other places. Any experience shared will be good. The company is also called onlinevisas.com

    If it sounds too good to be true it probably is.

  • Can’t see how software, no matter how brilliantly designed, can make a difference to the outcome of an application. The software doesn’t change the facts of an applicant's circumstances, the usual ‘RIRO’ theory still applies

  • @Traveller What is the RIRO theory?

1 Answer 1


I don't intend to defame anyone. I am just sharing my experience and suspicion. I reached out to them for an assessment of my profile. The attorney gave strongly positive feedback; they also tried to convince me not to try to convince my company to get an EB-1B. Instead, they insisted on getting an EB-1A done with them.

  1. My profile was good but not as good as the attorney was reacting. This made me suspicious.
  2. They moved things quickly, sent me an ~$12K invoice, and asked me to pay quickly so they could start the process. The market rate for the same was $4-6K.
  3. As you mentioned, they said they would use some miraculous software to prepare the petition. However, they didn't provide anything when I asked for a demo of the S/W or some stats for demonstrating its success.
  4. They wanted everything to be paid upfront. I proposed to go via a retainer (like everyone else in the market does) and that I pay the fee once the application is approved (I did one thing differently here, others in the market ask for 50% advance and 50% after acceptance. I wanted to pay 100% after the approval). They insisted on 100% advance payment and didn't even offer the halfway thing. This made me suspicious about their claim of making a successful application for me. I think they were just trying to fetch money.

I never did business with them, so I cannot guarantee anything. I was suspicious enough not to continue with them.

  • Thanks for sharing your elaborate experience @Chor Sipahi.
