Migration agents registered in Australia are professionals legally authorized to offer advice and assistance on Australian immigration matters. Each professional on our website is a fully registered migration agent, able to give legal advice to anyone seeking citizenship-by-investment in Australia.
Each agent can assist clients in the preparation of visa applications and other related immigration documents, lodge this prepared application and all required documents (which can lead to a faster decision on your application), offering advice about various immigration pathways and representing clients in proceedings related to visa matters. These agents can help find visa options available to you and your family and can serve as a direct contact to the Australian Government’s Department of Immigration and Border Protection.
