Immigration Department has published a post on their migration blog in regard to “What to expect from a registered migration agent’.
Here is the summary of the things mentioned in the post:
- It’s against the law for anyone who is not registered to advise about eligibility for a visa or provide assistance
- Registered migration agents are skilled professionals with up-to-date knowledge of Australian migration law
- Registered Agent is bound by the professional standards set out in the migration agents’ Code of Conduct
- Agent must be realistic with you about your chances of getting a visa – they shouldn’t give you false hope and can never guarantee you a visa
- The agreement should give you a breakdown of the costs involved in preparing and submitting your visa application, including the agent’s professional fees and any visa application charges.
- You should consider talking to a few agents about their services and fees before you choose one and sign a written contract with them
