We welcome you to our site that contains an overview of the various Australian visas and permits, to enable you to immigrate to Australia. You will be able to learn about the various steps of the immigration process and importantly how using a professional MARA (Migration Agents Registration Authority ) registered professional can assist you in making your immigration application and subsequent move to Australia as smooth as possible.
For those wishing to assess there eligibility for Immigration to Australia we invite you to complete our immigration eligibility assessment, e-mail your enquiry through or request a call back to speak with a member of our immigration team.
At this stage it may just be an idea or potential option, or perhaps your plans have gone further and Australia is definitely your selected immigration destination – either way assessing your eligibility to immigrate to Australia is of prime importance and should be the first step on your immigration journey.
The Immigration Act, Regulations, Ministerial Instructions and Procedure Advice Manual (out of which the Department of Immigration and Citizenship operate) is thousands of pages long and there are approximately some 170 Australian visa and permit options. There is simply no way a website, an instant 'free' online eligibility, or even a brief consultation can provide you with all the information you need to make informed decisions and avoid making costly mistakes.
It is also at this stage that thoughts turn to professional help. Which company has the required expertise, Australian Immigration experience and service standards to assess your eligibility? How can they assist in uncovering all the appropriate Australian visa options, professionally prepare and submit any applications and guide you through all the extensive relocation scenarios?
There is little doubt that enlisting the services of a professional, registered Australian immigration expert can only improve your chances of a successful immigration application - but of course which company should you select.
For applicants outside of Australia selecting, your Australian immigration company can be thwart with difficulties.
Importantly your first criteria must be that any company you are dealing with is registered with The Migration Agents Registration Authority (MARA).
You can read more on the role that MARA plays in regulating the Australian Immigration industry here, but in short it is illegal in Australia to give advice about immigration to Australia without being registered with the Office of the MARA. There are heavy penalties for giving immigration assistance without this registration, this however does not apply to “so called advisors” based abroad with many offering their services as 'experts' but in fact having no official standing.
Unregistered persons or companies may try to take advantage of your situation and provide incorrect information and false hopes, such as, guaranteeing you a visa or no visa no fee services.
Using a registered professional may well cost you slightly more in service fees but using an unregistered one may well jeopardise your whole immigration to Australia.
