With so much information available online these days, it can be tempting to ask… why even use a migration agent? The bottom line is that it can take a lot of the confusion and stress out of your migration journey to or within Australia. A migration agent’s experience, professional qualifications and familiarity with deadlines are often what you need 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. The Australian Department of Home Affairs has a strict and regimented process in place and the requirements of the applicant will vary depending on a number of factors including visa type, country of origin, age, health, education, work experience, criminal records, finances and/or financial situation.
Every applicant has a unique set of circumstances and the visa application process is very thorough. Depending on the type of visa you are applying for will also determine the amount of work that is required for a successful application. Some visas will require additional documentation such as training plans, skills assessments, character submissions if there are character issues, labour market testing, market salary rate, writing positions about genuine positions, satisfying the genuine temporary entrant requirement, offering alternatives to cancellation of visas, and handling AAT matters, including writing submissions and providing and producing more concrete evidence to the tribunal.
Another reason why it is so important to use a migration agent is because 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 an application being delayed or refused 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 and experienced migration agent is and should be the preferred option for Visa applicants. There are many migration agents available but it is worthwhile doing some research to ensure they are right for you.
