WHY USE A MIGRATION AGENT

 

The services of a Migration Agent mean the agent is qualified to help you with your visa application and services to deal with the Department of Home Affairs (The Department) and other organisations for you.

 

The benefits of using the services of a registered agent are; up to date knowledge, legitimate interest in your best interests, manage your money safely, fair cost, keep record of your visa application, and notify you of your visa outcome in a timely manner.

 

Beware of a person, or persons who claims to offer services of a registered Migration Agent in Australian for visa advice and applications. A person who claims to be a registered Australian Migration Agent falsely, and any person who gives immigration advice in Australian will face severe penalties in Australia.

 

The best method to identify is a person is a Registered Migration Agent in Australia is to do a search on the Migration Agent Registration Authority (MARA) website. On the MARA web site, search for the Migration agent’s family name and first name. If they are not on the MARA web site, they are not a Registered Migration Agent in Australia and should not be offering services of a Registered Migration Agent in Australia.

 

A registered Migration Agent in Australia is required to have qualifications and meet standards under the Migration Agents Code of Conduct that states that a registered Migration Agent must maintain; up to date knowledge, legitimate interest in your best interests, manage your money safely, fair cost, keep record of your visa application, and notify you of your visa outcome in a timely manner.
