Fil-Global Immigration Services Corp. which started in London in 2014 envisions to be a global leader in immigration services, internships, and university placements in high-income countries.
Focusing on the university placement of the Filipino youth to study in countries such as Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Spain, the United States, and more, the Fil-Global team of professionals is working together to strengthen its position as an industry leader.
The firm has been reference checked, reviewed, approved, and certified as a first-rate agent by the ICEF, the global market leader in business-to-business networking services for the international education sector. For over 30 years, ICEF brings together educational institutions and carefully selects and certifies student recruitment agents and related service providers.
In recognition of their achievement, qualified agencies are entitled to identify themselves as having achieved ICEF Agency Status. They are awarded an official ICEF ID, consisting of a certificate and IAS badge featuring their own unique QR Code. This code links to a secure digital certificate that shows which agency it belongs to and the expiry date of the certification. Fil Global has achieved the IAS. As a result, the firm’s status has become synonymous with exceptional agent quality.
In the Philippines, it is the only immigration service firm that has an ISO certification. ISO 9001:2015 specifies that Fil Global has met all requirements for a quality management system and has demonstrated its ability to consistently provide products and services that meet enhanced customer satisfaction, including processes for improvement, as well as all applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.
Much like the ISO certification, JAS-ANZ, or the Joint Accreditation System of Australia and New Zealand is an independent, third-party accreditation body that provides internationally recognized accreditation services. JAS-ANZ provides accreditation for programs. They do so by developing the assessment criteria certifiers and inspectors must meet to become accredited. Fil Global has garnered the Management systems certification for quality management systems (AS/NZS ISO 9001).
TÜV is short for Technischer Überwachungsverein in German, which means Technical Inspection Association. These associations are independent companies that test, inspect and certify technologies, products and systems to ensure potential hazards and prevent damage.
The TÜV certification is an important recognition for Fil Global to gain trust from clients and partners across the global markets. It has put the agency at the forefront of technology, ensuring its service delivery features are inclusive, safe and relevant. The TÜV certification is routinely audited once a year or every two years to ensure that certified products, systems, or solutions remain safe and good for usage.
Fil Global also garnered the Philippine Top Choice Awards for excellence given by an independent award-giving body that aims to acknowledge and reward individuals and companies, products and services that promote and recognize best business practices leading to consumer welfare and protection, product quality, and consumer services.
Accreditations, certifications, and awards of excellence add value to the growing and increasingly complicated market chain, in many ways, by providing a symbol of assurance that a business, an entity, or organization is trustworthy.
Fil-Global has proven to lead the pack of immigration consultants in the Philippines worthy of the trust and confidence of clients and partners in the industry. It lays its sight to become a global entity respected by partner institutions and world leaders in the immigration consulting industry.
Bertch Ian Namauag Ranis, chief executive of the company, said: “We cannot sit on our laurels, we will continue to strive to be number 1 both here in the Philippines, and in other countries.”
Fil-Global has successfully sent out many students to study abroad in the past eight years, including celebrities like Maymay Entrata who is currently studying in Canada.
“One of our flagship projects is a lifetime membership to Fil-Global, whereby a member is assured of our consulting services for life. Hence, any moment our members need us even while they are already abroad, our people are always ready to respond to them regardless of the differences in time zones. Our all-time high level responsiveness is one attribute Fil-Global has that differentiates us from the rest,” Ranis said.
