Buddhika Perera

"I met Dr. Lionel Samayawardhena to get a student visa to Canada. After assessing my details, Dr. Lionel mentioned it is impossible to do this visa and I never continued. After some time, I went to Dr. Lionel again because I got married and my husband is a full-time student in Canada. "

Farvin Deen

" Canada Gateway Consultants can do miracles, believe me, they are superb. I went to them with a Master's degree and I did not have an option to apply for PR in Canada. Because I was already fully qualified and due to the age factor not enough points for migration. I met Dr. Lionel Samayawardhena and got a thorough analysis of my case and decided what to do."
