The Facts

  • Migration Law is based on the Migration Act 1958, Migration Regulations 1994, a Department of Immigration & Citizenship Procedures Advice Manual, and endless Ministerial Directions and Parliamentary Gazette Notices. It also lacks consistency across the range of visa types, and changes constantly.
  • Basically (under s65 of The Act), if a visa application meets all of the criteria in the legislation (in reality as interpreted by Departmental policy), a visa will be issued, ie. Get it right…..you get a visa!
  • But if the application does not meet the criteria, the visa will not be granted. There is no room for error, and it the application fails, you may experience serious re-application delays or you may very well not get a second chance. If it’s wrong even in a small way, you get nothing!
  • If your visa application and your future happiness means something to you, you should use a professional who knows all the ins and outs of the legislation, and how the Department interprets visa applications. We will assess your case and give you the right requirements for your individual situation. Why would you settle for anything less? Isn’t getting a secure and happy future worth it?
  • And watch out for fake and unregistered agents, especially in the Philippines! In Manila (or Cebu, Davao or Angeles or any other City in the Philippines) please watch out for travel agents, employment agents or education agents who offer to do your visas processing for you. You have no proof of their qualifications or ethics, and therefore no protection! Even POEA registration doesn’t mean they know about Australian Migration Law. Insist on a MARA-registered agent!
