As the General Manager of a large and complex regional theater, one that must operate within the parameters of multiple collective bargaining units to present international works as well as Individual artists from across the globe, I can attest that I would not want anyone other than Elise-Ann and E-AK Visa Services LLC working on my behalf to secure our ability to include these artists in our repertory. In each of the numerous occasions that we have needed her services, I have been so grateful to Elise-Ann for her thorough base of knowledge, resourcefulness, experience, and clear communication style. Throughout the entire process (initial inquiry to confirmation of approvals) it is clear that the needs of the company, as well as the needs of the artists were paramount. I would (and have!) recommend/ed E-AK Visa Services to anyone who is in need of visa services for their personal and/or business needs.

Having worked with E-AK Visa Services to procure work visas for multiple international artists on various projects, I wholeheartedly recommend Elise-Ann Konstantin for prompt, professional, and supportive services during the entire process. Her background in the entertainment production field makes her uniquely qualified and efficient at knowing the critical importance of expediting red tape in order to get performing artists onstage on time.

I had he pleasure of working with Elise-Ann Konstantin to secure Visas for a performance our museum co-presented with a local cultural partner. In the past, I had a very bad experience with a visa coordinator and was really worried to jump into the visa world again. But working with Elise-Ann was entirely different – she is highly communicative, knowledgeable, friendly and demonstrated a high level of professionalism as she led the artist, her technical team and me through the processes involved. I have the utmost confidence in her abilities and I will definitely work with her again!
