Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Use a Registered Migration Agent

While it’s not mandatory to use a registered migration agent when applying for a visa, a registered migration agent can provide valuable assistance throughout the visa application process.

Here are five of the most important reasons why you should use a registered migration agent.

1.      Industry Regulated

To provide migration advice in Australia, a migration agent needs to be registered with the Migration Agents Registration Authority (MARA). Registered agents are monitored for integrity of conduct and quality of immigration assistance.

Registered agents must:
-          Meet qualification requirements for registration which includes having a sound knowledge of migration law and procedures
-          Maintain a professional library and up-to-date knowledge
-          Complete ongoing professional training to enable them to renew their registration as a migration agent each year
-          Be of good character
-          Abide by the migration agents code of conduct

2.      Higher Chance of Success

Registered migration agents work with visa applications every day. A registered migration agent will ensure you have the best chance of getting a visa approved by ensuring your application is as strong as it can be. They are well-versed in the minor details of visa applications and will ensure that you have all your visa application bases covered.

3.      Knowledge and Expertise

Registered migration agents have the knowledge and expertise to ensure all aspects of your visa application are completed correctly and you have all the relevant supporting documentation. With hundreds of visa pathways available, a migration agent will also be able to recommend the best pathway for your individual case. A migration agent will also be aware of any changes that have been made to visa pathways or the visa application process.

4.      Removes Stress and Saves Time

Applying for a visa can be time consuming and stressful. A migration agent will be able to complete your application in a timely manner. There may also be times throughout the application process when it’s essential to speak with the Department of Home Affairs or other relevant organisations, a registered migration agent will be able to undertake these tasks for you.

5.      Solve Complex Issues

It is possible your visa application is more complex than usual. Perhaps, you have had an application denied or a visa cancelled. A migration agent will be able to assist you and work out what went wrong and hopefully help you work towards a successful visa application.

Travel Exemptions

While Australian borders are currently closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, travel exemptions may apply under the following circumstances:

- A traveller has a compassionate or compelling reason to visit Australia
- Overseas workers holding a Subclass 482 or 400 visa are required to undertake a job in Australia that cannot be filled by a local employee

Visa Solutions Australia has been successful in acquiring a broad range of exemptions, from critical workers to those needing to travel on compassionate grounds.
