Ximena and Leila @ Hasta La Visa Baby, looked after a passport renewal for me. From start to finish, I knew that I was in safe hands. Any questions I had were answered quickly and always in such a friendly and efficient way. I wouldn’t hesitate to use them again 😊

My company and our management company, Trinifold Management, have used the services of Hasta La Visa Baby in recent years. Because of the nature of our business, which is music and publishing involving international touring, we are required to apply for work visas every few years. I often have to renew passports or obtain visas for several employees and musicians at any given time. Hasta La Visa Baby work closely with our American immigration lawyers, Kushner & Kushner and it is a very happy marriage.
I have always found HLVB to be extremely thorough and efficient, particularly Ximena Pineda who kindly guided me through a complex process when I applied for a work visa for my boss. She explained everything that was required very clearly and facilitated the completion of the many forms necessitated by United States in order to obtain visas – be they visitor visas or work visas. This can be an absolute minefield if one doesn’t know what is expected and required and it is often quite an anxious and frustrating time for applicants.
I cannot recommend the services of HLVB more highly. Ximena Pineda has been incredibly helpful and so accommodating. Furthermore, the company’s charges are very reasonable and I really don’t know what I would do without their expert advice and knowledge.
Rex King - Tour Manager - THE WHO
I am not much good at this sort of this but suffice to say that HLVB handled all my needs in the most efficient, professional, manner. I would have been stuck without them.
I loved your service. I would defiantly recommend as many people know obtaining a visa is a super stressful process and working with you calmed my nerves down a lot. The communication was amazing and the whole process was smooth. I would rate your services 10/10

“Quick, efficient, professional and personal – all words I would use to describe Hasta La Visa Baby’s service in helping us obtain our Entrainment Visas for various territories for our World Wide Touring over the past few years.”
Phil Marfleet - Tour Manager - Il Divo
Working with Ximena was a throughly pleasant and easy process in what could have been a horrendous task of renewing US visas, whilst on tour. Without all the group having second passports and various complications with expired passports and locutions and availability’s.
Ximena and her team around the world fully understood everything we threw at them and made it work very easily!
We would have absolutely no doubt in using Ximena and her team again and again in the future.

“I’m old, and old school in who I deal with for my artists, you need credibility. When the Kushner’s said you should use ‘Hasta La Visa Baby’ and contact Ximena, I was “doesn’t sound very legit” for dealing with the difficult and dreaded US Visa visits!
How wrong can you be? All went splendidly and they obviously have a rapport with the Embassy security team, dropped papers were located and returned quickly.
Now on the highly recommended list, let’s hope there’ll be an opportunity to use visa’s before they run out in three years!”
DENNIS GARDNER - Production Manager - Aerosmith
This is the best service in the business!! What they don’t know about the visa process, embassy appointments and wait times, etc is minimal. Their service is excellent beyond question.
Throughout our various applications for US ‘O’ class visas over the years, these have gone through without any hick-ups, because of there attention, they make sure you are fully aware of how the process is going, with text messages, emails etc, you never feel in the dark.
Couldn’t recommend them enough.
Lizzie Scace - Production Coordinator - Rolling Stones
“I have had the pleasure of working with Ximena, and her team, on several occasions. The first time sticks out, I was in need of renewing three US crew visas under extremely short turn around times and in totally different locations around the world.
Ximena’s logistical background in the touring industry as a Product Coordinator and her puzzle piecing skills got the job done. The crew members got their needed visas in record time.
Ximena and her team go the extra mile ! “
PETE HILLIER - Tour Manager - Robert Plant
I had the pleasure to use HLVB to arrange and process visas for two of me artists in 2019 and 2020.
She went above and beyond and provided an excellent and efficient service and, as we had colleagues who had to apply in different parts of the globe, she made it easy for everyone.
Nicola Powell - Robert Plant
An exemplary service. Very efficient, professional , with an impressive door-to-door service. I have used good and bad visa services over the years for artists and musicians but these guys are the best! I cannot recommend them highly enough.
Paolo Chiovini - Production Manager - Gogol Bordello
Ximena is a badass.
Last minute visas, replacing passports while on the road, consular appointments with no advance notice…not a problem.
Ximena always made it happen so smoothly, painlessly and efficiently, so it took the biggest weight off my shoulders.
For my last visa, my schedule kept changing and I believe I asked her to move my interview appointment at least 5 times trying to fit it with my tour schedule. She redid it all as well as my documents without even blinking, so I actually got my visa in well before my deadline.
Ximena is the best asset for any artist touring worldwide.
PAUL SYMINGTON - TOUR MANAGER - NIALL HORAN
Ximena has turned an arduous, continuously changing and always time consuming affair into a straight forward process.
She is always available and is now my first port of call when dealing with all things visas and immigration.
The service she provides and the manner she goes about it is invaluable to me.
Amelia Scivier - General Manager - CLOSER ARTISTS
Ximena and the team are attentive, quick and professional. They patiently work with you to ensure everything is organized proprely and correctly. It’s been a pleasure working with them’
