What is a migration agent?
Migration agents provide immigration advice and assistance, including help lodging visa applications. Agents must be qualified and demonstrate to the Office of the Migration Agents Registration Authority (MARA) that they:
- have sufficient knowledge of migration law and procedures
- are a person of integrity
- are a fit and proper person to provide immigration assistance
- are committed to the Migration Agent's Code of Conduct
Agents can advise if your visa application is likely to succeed, but they do not make visa decisions and cannot influence outcomes. Only the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (the Department) makes decisions about visa applications. For more information, visit www.mara.gov.au or refer to the MARA Consumer Guide.
Why should I use a migration agent?
We aim to make the visa and migration process as simple and stress-free as possible. Migration agents provide tailored advice to your circumstances and assist you throughout the application process – identify the most appropriate visa, prepare and lodge the correct paperwork, and act as your representative in all communication with the Department.
How long will it take for my application to be processed?
Application processing times can vary. To discuss your specific circumstances, please contact us to make an appointment.
What visa should I apply for?
There are many visa types available. For a complete list visit the Australian Government Department of Border and Immigration website.
