Why would you use a Migration Agent to help your migration to Australia process, when there is so much information publicly available on the Department of Immigration and Citizenship website?
Facts About Migration To Australia
Put simply, there are so many different visa options, it can be difficult to know which is the best one in your circumstance. A Registered Migration Agent has the appropriate education and experience to advise you on the best course of action considering your short and long term goals. Using an agent also takes the hassle out of the process, as the agent lodges all forms and deals with correspondence from the Department of Immigration.
Don’t Be Fooled – Use A Registered Migration Agent
If you do use an Agent, make sure that you use one who is Registered with the Migration Agents Registration Authority (MARA). This provides you with the security of knowing that your agent is of good character, has the appropriate skills and knowledge and abides by the MARA Code of Conduct.
The Migration Advice Profession is regulated, in the interests of consumers and professionals. The MARA provides information for consumers about what they should expect from a migration agent. This important information is available in many different languages.
Here’s a short video, available in several different languages, produced by the Department of Immigration and Citizenship, which gives information about using a Registered Migration Agent if you are considering migration to Australia from overseas.
