Why Should I Use An Australian Migration Agent?

Decided you want to move to Australia but not sure whether you need the services of an Australian migration agent? If you’ve decided to apply for an Australian visa then you’re probably facing this very predicament of whether or not to employ the services of a Registered Migration Agent. However, this all boils down to your personal circumstances, how capable you think you are of filing all the necessary paperwork or whether you’ve got the time to dedicate to your visa application. After all, it can be a lengthy and complex process. It’s handy to use a Migration Agent as they’re in the know about the application process and will most likely specialise in moves to Perth, Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney or other popular cities in Australia - and can answer most questions you may have about the visa application process for Australia. The biggest plus point of using a Australian Migration Agent is that they are fully knowledgeable about Australia’s migration laws and the processes involved to obtain your visa. Migration Agents deal with all types of visa applications for Australia on a daily basis, which means that they are aware of any potential risks and can spot any errors you may have made in your application. A registered migration agent will assist with your visa application for Australia through throughout the entire process including lodgement with the migration authorities, and ensure that your application is lawful, with the correct paperwork and documentation. This way you won’t need to spend hours working out which visa you need to apply for and how to apply for an Australian visa, and allows you to focus on things like what to pack, getting a job and finding somewhere to live so that you’re ready to go once your visa is approved. A Registered Australian Migration agent can also talk you through major processes such as the English language test  see IELTS (making sure you have competent English) as well as skills assessment stage and the points system. Migration Agents for Australia are also required to stay completely up to date with all and any changes to all visa categories, as well as changes to State sponsorship and requirements. And if you’re someone who recently applied for a 457 visa then you’ll know that a significant amount of changes were brought in, which affected many applicants and employers. Occupation Shortage Lists can change overnight meaning you may be eligible for a visa one day and not the next! By employing the services of Registered Migration Agent , you will be assured that you will be kept up to date with any changes to visas that apply to you personally.

Getting your Application Right the First Time Around

Visa application assessments are fairly black and white in that if you make an error on your visa application it could be rejected - which could result in you losing a considerable amount of money as most visa applications are non-refundable, and delay your plans for moving to Australia. Using the services of an Australian migration agent removes the stress on whether you have made a correct application and considerably reduces the chances of a rejection and potentially saves you a lot of money and time.

Migration Agent Costs

  • We have arrived in Brisbane safely, goods and all!! Been here since September and loving it so far. Thankfully our house was not damaged in anyway by the floods, although we have been involved in Volunteering to help clean up after the floods (that was an experience!). Thanks again.
    – Elaine, Kevin and Kim Lawrence, Brisbane, Australia
  • Thank you so so much and everybody at OE for everything. We are over the moon! We are all in shock and there are tears! Thank you again.
    – Warren Baldwin-Jones, Canada
  • Now that I have scraped myself off the ceiling following the exciting news regarding my VISA grant I received on Friday, I just wanted to pass on my thanks for your part in making all of this possible. A number of years ago I had a phone consultation with another company (didn’t know about OE at the time) and came away disheartened as there thoughts on my success at this was far from favourable. Yet on conversation with Laurence he stated to me that I could get a visa without state sponsorship and it would take 7 months and that I should be wary of the IELTS test. If I have my dates correct it took about 9 months but would have been 7 were it not for the IELTS test! Again, your patience support and effort were greatly appreciated and I have passed on this experience to a number of friends who are also thinking of making the move and that they should use OE.
    – Graeme and family, Australia
  • Things are working out really well for us in NZ and I am more than happy for my comments to be posted on your website, I meant what I said regarding my positive view of your company and I would like people to know. There are so many companies offering the same kind of service, it’s hard to know who to trust and we had OE recommended by a friend and I would recommend to anyone without a second thought.
    – Sam Whittam, New Zealand
