IMMIGRATION LAW

Visa & Migration applications and related appeals

Australian Immigration laws are constantly changing and can be very confusing. In addition to the Migration Act 1958 and its associated Regulations, there are thousands of pages of policy guidelines and instructions, Court judgments and Migration Review Tribunal, Refugee Review Tribunal and Administrative Appeals Tribunal decisions, all of which affect the way the law in Australia is interpreted and applied. We have the qualifications and expertise to advise you about your best options for migration to Australia.

Providing migration advice in Australia requires registration with the Office of the Migration Agents Registration Authority (MARA) and sound knowledge of migration law and professional behaviour in accordance with the MARA’s Code of Conduct.
