Why do I need a migration agent? This is the question that many Visa applicants ask and the answer is very simple. You need a migration to ensure all of your Visa documents are lodged accurately and on time.
A lot of applicants underestimate the amount of work that is involved when preparing and lodging a Visa to live, stay or work in Australia. Unfortunately it is not as easy as filling out a form and sending it in. The Australian Government has a strict and regimented process in place and the requirements of the applicant will vary depending on a number of factors including:
Every applicant is different and their circumstances are different and this is why the Visa application process to Australia is so thorough. Depending on the type of Visa you are applying will also determine the amount of work and ‘proof’ that will be required for a successful application. Some Visa’s will require a lot of additional documentation such as work references, health assessments, financial records, business trading information, children’s records, prior passports, the list can go on and on.
A good migration agent will be proactive and chase up files and applications and also ensure that the documentation is filled out properly and completely to reduce the chance of the application being delayed due to insufficient information. A migration agent will have direct contacts and avenues only available within the migration industry which will also assist with a seamless application process.
This is why using a registered, qualified, experienced and professional migration agent firm is becoming the preferred option for many Visa applicants to Australia. There are many migration agents available but it is worthwhile doing some research to ensure they are right for you. As advised by the Australian Department of Immigration and Border Patrol, the first thing you must determine is that you chose a migration agent that is registered with the office of Migration Agents Registration Authority (MARA). To check this, the migration agent will have their MARA registration number displayed on their website.
