ACN or Reachout?

ce_01ce_01 PhilippinesPosts: 36Member
Help! I'm torn between choosing ACN or Reachout (Ms. Gigi) as my migration agent. Hope you'll help me decide. They almost have the same fee. Btw I'am based in the Philippines.

    I don't know Reachout but in my case I choose ACN and so far so good.
    I am based outside the Philippines and our communication is via email and after 5 months I was able to apply for 189 visa..

    Aside from the quotations they have sent you, do they have additional payments or hidden charges? 5months is quite fast. Thanks for the response. ☺
  • zanxzanx Posts: 69Member
    @ce_01 no other charges so far. whatever their service fee they ask that's it.

    Hello, I am also torn between ACN and Ms. Gigi. Both already gave me their assessments and they almost have the same service fee. Sino po nakaexperience na ng service ng ACN? Sila po ba ang magaaply ng EOI on your behalf and do follow ups etc?

    Thank you.
