CIG is one of the most trusted business setup consultancy. I would highly recommend for the business setup and EID services. We dealt with meenakshi and Angelique - highly recommend them both. They have so much patience when we ask them a million questions. Everything is explained in detail and they try to help you with everything to take the stress and pressure off you.I personally thank CIG for that, but I also thank Meenakshi and Angelique for getting the job done professionally. Thank you very much, guys.

I would like to commend Ashwini of CIG. She is very detail-oriented, and always find a solution to any setback. She always assist me in the best and professional way to deliver a quality work and finish tasks on time, specially that visa processing are time sensitive matters. She has shown a strong commitment to the customer experience by returning calls and follow ups if needed. AShwini overall has a very good work ethic and I enjoy working with her.
