It has been three years, but I remember signing with PassportUSA like it was yesterday. Getting to the United States is not an easy task. It has a lot of ups and downs, but PassportUSA made the process enjoyable and less strenuous. Together, my ‘work family’ and PassportUSA brought out the best in me and I look forward to work everyday.


Physical Therapist, New Mexico

Choosing PassportUSA to help me reach my American Dream has been one of the best decisions I have made in my life so far. I brought my whole life from the Philippines with just two bags, a few dollars in my wallet, some confidence, faith, and trust that this company would help me every step of the way. I have never been wrong.

Prior to registering with PassportUSA, I had been to many different agencies and ended up being disheartened as no one would lead me to the right path. I was so thankful for my dearest friend who paved the way to PassportUSA. Now, after being part of the PassportUSA family for four years, I can vouch for their professionalism and integrity.
