Why use an agent or professional assistance for your application ?

Why use an Agent?

People will not represent themselves in a court of law without an appointed advocate and lawyer who knows the law intimately and can best put their case to the judge and jury utilising their skills, experience and knowledge to the advantage of the client. The same applies in migration cases.

Reputable registered migration agents are professional persons.

We know the law, the complexities and criteria applicable to presenting an immigration application and we know how to best compile, prepare and present your case to the department of immigration.

In migration applications, you potentially have one chance at success, fail and you could possibly close the doors. As specialists, we ensure that you firstly apply for the right visa, and secondly we prepare your case in a manner that will guarantee the best possible opportunity for a visa grant.

We ensure that the correct information is stated on the vast number of application forms, that you present the correct supporting evidence, and we then submit a substantial submission (up to 120 pages) with your application where we address every single aspect of the applicable law, regulations and procedures manual the immigration officers use in relation to your case and the supporting evidence you supplied.

There is normally a great deal of communication and queries after a visa application is lodged with the department – mostly due to changes in circumstances, regulations or due to the long period that application processing takes. We take care of all of these questions and represent you until you obtain your visa.

It is always in our best interest to ensure that your application succeeds !

Are the fees charged by agents excessive ?

Firstly, we charge on average 30 to 50% less than most other migration firms, secondly, you pay for professional services like you would for your advocate, lawyer, architect or doctor, and lastly what price can you put on your future?

If you made a decision to migrate, you should be feel confident, secure and assured that your case has the best possible chances of success, as this will obviously have great influence on the rest of your life.

Many do-it-yourself applications fail. We utilise our extensive skills and expertise and we spend a great deal of time and effort on each application we handle to ensure that your money invested in your future is invested to your benefit and advantage.

The cost of a Visa applications is significant, and application fees paid to DIBP are not refundable. If your visa is refused, you loose your fees.

Every application we process is done individually by highly qualified persons – we spend on average over 60 hours on a TR application, and up to 120 hours on a PR application until conclusion of the application.

Your visa is your passport to your future, without it the doors are closed to your new life in Australia.

Australian Business visas in 2013

The Investor visa is part of the ‘Business Innovation and Investment’ stream, newly launched in 2012 with much more stringent criteria.

The visa application process for investor visas begins in November 2012 – and essentially means that investors would need to invest at least AUD 5 million into Australia – either in bonds or into a company.

Chris Bowen, Minister for migration said “The business innovation and investment program is positioned to target migrants with a demonstrated history of success in business and investment, to make a powerful contribution to national innovation and the Australian economy”

“‘The AUD 5 million minimum is considered to be sufficient for a meaningful investment contribution, justifying eligibility for visa concessions such as not having to meet the points test, no upper age limit and access to reduced residence requirements”, he went on to say.

Yet will the net worth be better for Australia?

the previous investor visa asked the applicant to have at least AUD 1.125 million, with AUD 750,000 to invest in government bonds.

It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that 50 applicants investing AUD 750,000, is better than 3 applicants investing 5 million each.

The likely figures of people using the investor route is not yet known. Yet logically speaking, DIAC could look at previous applicants of the investor route and see how many of them had such huge resources as 5 million. It will not be that many, at all, that entered Australia versus the total number who entered and invested the 750,000.

It could therefore be asked as to why this change has come about. Nonetheless, the new criteria is set until further changes may alter it yet again.
