With immigration information and policies being constantly updated, it can be hard keeping track of what is legitimate information compared to fraudulent information – especially in regards to migrating to Australia.
The Department of Immigration and Border Protection has issued a statement warning visa applicants about hoax websites and businesses advertising ‘visa-free arrangements’ between Australia and several other countries including Fiji, Pakistan, the Philippines and Oman.
The statement reiterates that any foreigner entering Australia will require a Visa and that all information should be cross-referenced with credible and registered sources such as the Department’s website: www.border.gov.au.
Another way to ensure that you are going through the proper channels with visa application to Australia is to use a qualified and registered migration agent.
If you would like to speak to one of our registered migration agents based here in Queensland, Australia, please contact our head office today.
