There has been a myth among lots of people that travel agents are visa counselors. Quite a few people think that since their relatives are buying tickets from a trusted travel agent, he is the best person to seek immigration or visa advice from. But that is far from true.

These people are called “authorized” representatives.
The people are trained and licensed for providing advice. So next time you have a question regarding immigration or visa , make sure you make an informed decision
