Many thanks Lashie,

Really appreciate your help here.

And just some quick feedback - you and your team have been amazing! Honestly such a big difference from trying to renew my VIPA this year compared the last two years where I would come in and call and come in and call and no one would ever come back to me or provide any advice. This year has been such a nice chance. Thank you so much for your great communication and efficiency. Great job!
Many thanks - jen

I have found VIPA staff very friendly and accommodating. Many a times during my inquiries, the staff have been very helpful and deliver the required information promptly. VIPA customer services has been tremendous and responded to emails on time.

I would not hesitate to say that the services I have received from VIPA were, by far, the only ones that proved to go a long way to ensure that the processes and related queries/obstacles encountered were well documented and covered to completion.
Apart from the usual business, the VIPA staff were also involved and stepped in assisting with processes and advice outside their designated areas, to fill in gaps that could not be supported by other governmental departments. By comparison with other departments, it was a pleasure to deal with VIPA staff.
