Getting it right first time 

Australian migration law is complex and the migration law landscape is constantly changing. We specialise in this area of practice and dedicate all of our time to keeping up to date with the latest changes. Our experts carefully consider all of your circumstances and formulate the best migration strategy for you to reach your ultimate migration goal. We get your application right first time around, maximising your chances of success and allowing you to have the confidence to plan for your future in Australia.

Saving time and money 

Trying to navigate your way through the complexities of Australian migration law can be challenging and time consuming. In addition, Department of Immigration visa application charges are expensive and are increasing year on year. If your visa application is refused the Department processing costs aren't refunded. Getting things wrong can be a very costly and stressful experience and can have serious consequences for those applicants who lodge whilst in Australia. Having an experienced specialist prepare and submit your visa application is an investment in your future and can provide you with the convenience and peace of mind to concentrate on other things, while we concentrate on securing your visa.

Transparent and competitive fees

We offer fixed fees for all of our work so you know exactly what you have to pay and when you have to pay it. Our engagement letters and terms of business are straightforward and easy to understand, so you know what work we are going to do for you and what you can expect from us. We believe in being totally transparent and accountable for everything we do for you.
