When people want to visit, work and live in Australia, they must have a visa. Once you are within Australia, you may want to apply for a new visa. The important point is to plan in advance. You would not want to miss out, if you realised there was not enough time to receive the visa you want.

We look at your visa options, give advice on a type of visa, and lodge your visa. We provide language assistance and help with issues including education.





Have you, or someone you know had their visa cancelled? This can happen, and if it does, the cost for you can be expensive, because of no refund policies for withdrawn or refused applications. Our ethical and pragmatic knowledge of legal processes enables us to make a persuasive application on your behalf.

Decisions that are related to merits review or visa-related decisions are reviewed at Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT).

Australia is a sparsely populated and vast country, where most of the population live in urban areas near the coast. The population density is as low as 2.5 people per square km, it is the sixth largest continent by continent area, and the largest island in the world. The natural beauty of this vast country, the diversity and multi-cultural lifestyle offers an abundance of rich opportunities for the astute traveller, worker or business person. Australias’ land is wide and vast from the outback plains to deep rainforests, crystal white, and golden sanded beaches to the large, modern, liveable, coastal cities; Australia has it all.


Australia is a developed country and one of the wealthiest in the world. It is a mostly safe, multicultural soceity with biodiversity and amazing, unique flora and fauna. The economy is number 12 in the world. Australia has the world’s fifth-highest per capita income. Australia ranks among the highest in international performance, quality of life, health, education, economic freedom and the protection of civil and political rights.


The Gold Coast


The Gold Coast is a coastal city with an estimated population of 679,127 at June 2019, and since 2019 has been classified as a regional area of Australia for visas’ purposes. This opens the Gold Coast to more Visas such as Regional Visas and Migration Programs. The Gold Coast is just north of the Northern New South Wales border and is approximately 66kms south-south east of the centre of the state capital, Brisbane, which is the fastest growing city in Australia. During COVID-19 The Gold Coast and Queensland has fared particularly well and we expect some students may want to relocate to The Gold Coast to study to stay safer from COVID-19.

The Australian, and Queensland Government in particular, wants to attract top talent to Queensland and particularly its’ regional areas. Business Visas and Global Talent Visas are on the list that the Queensland Government is actively promoting for both Australians and International Skilled Workers, Business professionals, and highly educated and skilled people with Global Talent and International recognition. The Gold Coast has new infrastructure projects developing and currently being constructed, such as the M1 Motorway, the Light Rail Service, which will extend to Burleigh Heads and the Gold Coast International Airport. Transport options on the Gold Coast include road, light rail, heavy rail, bus, and airport. The Gold Coast has sister city agreements with 12 other cities and partnerships with 4 other cities from around the world.


Schooling is of a high standard on the Gold Coast, and there are both Government and Private schools, of which have places for International students. Some of the schools encourage International friendships and exchanges with schools from other countries. Some high schools from other cities around the world have been bringing their students to study and learn English whilst integrating with local students and their families through home stay programs. International students may also study full-time at high schools and on graduation there are world class colleges and universities to choose from in the Gold Coast and Brisbane as well.


The Gold Coast is a major tourist destination with a sunny, sub-tropical climate and is famous for its’ world-class surfing breaks, 70km of golden, sand beaches, high rise skyline of Surfers Paradise, theme parks, nightlife, and rainforest hinterland. The Gold Coast is also part of Australia’s entertainment industry with television production, and International Award-winning Film Industry and productions. The 2018 Commonwealth Games were held on the Gold Coast between the 4th – 15th April, 2018. Events include; sports, music, arts as well as other events.




No matter what you are looking for you can be certain it is here in the Gold Coast, Australia. People may visit or move to Australia with their family and friends. Often a visit to Australia for the first time for young people is with an International study tour, where they study with a high school or approved ELICOS College to improve their English, and learn about Australia. If you are a student, you can enrol in an Australian school and study with us. Many students come to Australia to study English at an ELICOS school and our Colleges can provide English for the Adult English Migration Program, which is now all important as Partner visa sponsors and applicants both need to have evdence of English. 60% of students, who study English at ELICOS schools, study stand alone English courses; that is students only study an English course and no other courses following that.


For those students who pass an English test, they often go onto college course where the fees are slightly cheaper than University in Australia. Students can use their course subjects to add towards a higher level University Course and obtain a higher qualification. Students and their family members are able to work certain hours, while they study and bring their partner and children too whilst studying. After graduation, many students stay on in Australia to work. Currently there is a high demand in Australia for those who can obtain a visa and work for a business or company. The business sponsors visas for workers who commit to work for the business.


For work visas, there is currently high demand for skilled workers who are qualified to work in a number of professions. This offers exciting opportunities for International people who are qualified. Particularly if you already have a relevant qualification in your country and some work experience in that area, as well as English language ability. This would put you in an excellent position to receive a visa to live and work in Australia for you, your partner and your children.


If you are young 30 years or younger, and want to visit Australia, backpacking is popular - a work and holiday or working holiday 1st, 2nd or 3rd visa may be possible. Young people enjoy travelling around Australia staying in accomodation, picking fruit and doing seasonal work. They often travel by bus or car and stay in share accommodation. Working holiday makers can gain work experience in Australia.




Older Australians 55 years and over often enjoy leaving their homes in the city and travelling around Australia in a 4WD and caravan. These people are referred to in the tourism world as “grey nomads.” This category of traveller are often cashed up and provide a large proportion of income for Australian tourism, as do the younger “back packers.”


Parents who have children in Australia may want to move to Australia permanently to live with their child or children and their family. This is possible and a decision to move from one country to Australia is obviously a decision of some magnitude. Parents with children in Australia can settle for ever in Australia and enjoy the benefits of living in Australia.


For businesses, there are enormous opportunities to bring your business to Queensland, and Australia. A visa for business allows many benefits for you. Your partner and children can live in Australia with you. Such business people often have their children attend Australian schools.


Elite actors and actresses, musicians, dancers, and academics often visit Australia to work.
