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.

Australia spouse visa processing times

Australian spouse and partner visa processing times do differ from country to country.

In an Australian partner, spouse, prospective spouse, de-facto visa application, the Australian citizen or Permanent Resident is the sponsor.

The person applying to come and live with them in Australia, with their new Australian visa.

Where do I lodge an Australian spouse visa? How can I apply and lodge the spouse visa application?

The country that the application will be lodged in is whichever country the applicant is in.

What if there is not an Australian embassy or visa office in the country? Then it will be a normal system that a near, nominated other country will have the Australian visa office or embassy that will take the applications.

Why are processing times different for different nationalities? Is this discrimination?

No it is not – this is based on the number of times that people of that nationality have over-stayed in Australia or broke visa rules and/or lodged fake or fraudulent applications.

It may also be about the time that the case officer needs to undergo the full checks of an application.

If the Australian sponsor is much older than the application, comes from a different culture, may not speak the same language and other issues, the DIAC case officer may feel as though they need to undergo further interviews or request further evidence, in order to ensure that the application is genuine, and that the applicant is not just after an Australian visa.

These are DIAC’s rules, not ours!

This is just the way that the system has been codified or regulated, so that legal decisions can be made related to something quite indefinable at times: a spousal relationship.
