See photo:  Their website, telephone, and email deliberately omitted because I don't want to promote them or have their employees chip in regarding reviews. 

I don't know anything about them: Not positive, Not negative.

Question: Does anyone have experience with this Visa company?  What's your opinion?

* They have 2 positive reviews on Google from Russian speakers, which doesn't mean anything to me.  A bit surprised no English reviews.

While I dont know anything about this company, I generally discount when a business has a few glowing online reviews because the company them themself could very likely have wrote them. All it takes is an email address in most cases.

They offer you a 'legal way' to stay here based on a TRP that you will get by opening your own company here.

They just 'forget' to tell you that you'll be held responsible for this company (not their part) and you need to pay constantly for external accounting services and so you have to pay huge penalties for being a foreign director after you started your company.  :D

They reacted like: 'But that's not our problem anymore. You've got your TRP then' when I asked them about this after some of my own research.

My advice => go to a specialist - pay more - but don't get tricked.

Ah, so they're scumbags. Did you get everything sorted in the end?

I'm still quite busy with it. Trying to arrange it all myself now.  ;D
At least I know the road to go because it will be not my first TRP here. Just I was interested by their reclame and attractive prices.
They didn't expect me to know a lot about the rules though...  :D

This company crap to apply for TRP is way too expensive and bureaucratic .... just my 5 cents. There are better, easier and much cheaper ways ...

Usually Bob, if you go to OVIR (or whatever they have now named it) and talk to them and follow their directions it seems to work out pretty well. Since it is their advice and list you are following it is sorta on them to get it done correctly. It really is not expensive, in the long run including Insurance (300UAH), I think the whole process fee wise was just under 900UAH.

It was the extra copies of documents that I had translated and notarized that cost me more and that was only because I insisted for my own piece of mind and whatever strange future thing might arise I made extras.

I have walked a few members via PM through the process but the easy ones were the guys I sent to OVIR first.

Thanks a lot for the quick reply ;)
Just wanted to verify since I am to renew my TRP urgently and go for PRP at the same time.
The urgency is to apply the rule that renewal request needs to be done the latest 2 weeks before expiry. Otherwise one has to go through the whole full procedure again from scratch (visa D, etc.)
Spent almost 3 hours waiting Friday at OVIR to find out that there was a computer problem and the office was awaiting the master to come to solve it. I'll see Monday morning again ... grrr :(
Meanwhile I found a lawyer office online offering to do it all and I sent an inquiry. Quick reply confirming all I had done already was correct (again) and he gave a price quote of $1500 if he would do it for me.... As I understand for both, the TRP first pending the procedure for PRP, which takes a much longer time.
BTW, had a bunch of docs verified on translation and sealed by a notary for 900UAH, doubled as well, since I probably need two sets (TRP/PRP). As I was made understood, all those docs/verifications shall not be older than 6 months ...
So, thanks. I am on the right track I take it ;)

Yeah right track, once that TRP is in hand you can relax and apply for PR which by contrast is much easier. Computers down? Yeah....in 2017 I still can't figure out how that can be a problem.   $1500 is just way too much when you can do it yourself for a moderate amount of time and stress just ONE MORE TIME. :-)

Once again frank your ignore list has curtailed your ability to even answer properly.
Bob you are on right track.
