Abroadscope team is professional, efficient and delivers stellar service from beginning to end. Most visa agents i had contacted had vague or no idea of how to apply for the Brazil visa in South Africa for a foreign passport holder like myself, and almost on the verge of losing hope, i was referred to Candice by an old friend. Candice and her team were God sent for me. This is the kind of service one expects when one loves to travel and is required to travel, is in a busy corporate environment with no time for visa admin and the tedious visa appointments. Abroadscope made my submission for Brazil visa smooth and hassle free including getting my appointment and confirming the dates. My visa came through within 2 days despite comments from other agents like “you might as well cancel the trip since you may not even get a visa” (even though i have travelled to almost 40 countries). Nicole, Claire and Candice, thank you wonderful Ladies for the world class service. I will refer you to anyone who wishes to ease their visa woes and requires this kind of stellar performance based service. My relationship with Abroadscope is only a beginning and i am excited about all my future travel possibilities.

Thanks to Nicole and Candice for their support and calm handling of an Australian visa application. Despite giving them late notice (having been struggling for weeks previously to get an application in before I came to them) they got it over the line in a short time with persistence and professionalism. Highly recommend.

Candice, your perseverance and assistance meant, that after struggling for 23 months to get a Death Certificate for my late husband, ho passed away in a foreign country, I was able to collect it today. I cannot recommend your services enough.

Thank you Abroadscope for helping acquire my visa! It was a last minute call to fly out of the country and the process was made much easier thanks to the assistance and help of Nicole, Candice and the team. I worked closely with Nicole who was attentive and assisted every step of the way

From the first phone call until I had my Visa in my hand, they were communicating with me and keeping me updated with the progress. Just hand over everything to them and save yourself the stress!!! Thanks Candice, Nicole and the whole team

You know the story when your “friend has a friend” and they “highly recommend them”..? Then It all goes wrong, the friend is as useless as the recommended party, and you spend the rest of eternity trying to avoid them both?!

Well, this is NOT that story!

After endless hours of wading through conflicting and erroneous immigration information online I found myself at dead end after dead end. It was time to enlist the help of a professional. After contacting a few it seemed like some of them, like their websites, provided conflicting information and didn’t seem to provide a clear plan nor understanding of our circumstances. This minefield of misinformation and waffle seemed to be nothing more than sales talk and opinion.

After finally placing my trust (and money) in a person who I thought sounded the most plausible, we spent the months gathering the relevant documents, attending appointments, applying for certificates, etc. In short, we applied and our application was rejected. We had been misinformed about the process and financial requirements.

We wanted to buy a house in South African but we were reluctant to invest as we didn’t know if we’d ever get residency. All hope was rapidly fading.

On the next visit to South Africa, a friend mentioned I should chat to her friend Candice. “Here we go again” I thought. But we were still longing to live in South Africa. We had even started looking at houses.

That same afternoon Candice called me and we spent an hour on the phone. We chatted about all sorts…and…the dreaded residency application of course. I explained our unusual and complex personal and financial arrangements across multiple countries. She was flabbergasted at the poor advice we had been previously fed.

Candice picked up on the fact that we had residency in another country as well as our country of origin and said we should apply from there as that’s where we were residing at the time. We decided to give it a shot.

Everything moved quickly. Candice set up appointments for us with the embassy as well as arranging South African bank accounts and chartered accountant certificates. The following months involved lots of questions being met with solid information and reassurance from Candice.

We attended the embassy appointment and everything ran smoothly. A few weeks later the email popped up to say our applications had been processed and that residency had been granted. I almost fell off my chair!

We have since referred Candice and Abroadscope to some German friends who found themselves in the same position as us.

The end of the story is: I sit here writing this review in our new house in South African with residency having been granted for myself and my family. This is the result we always hoped for and it was made possible by Candice and her amazing team. She has been an abundance of support, knowledge and reassurance from the start.

Thank you!

We were told about Candice Magen’s business and the assistance they could give. Thank goodness, we did not hesitate to utilise their services. They assisted my son in his urgent German Shenghen visa application – he is now enroute to assist at the Formula E events in Berlin and Monaco. Thank you guys for making this possible…
