What does Immigration Dept think of Migration Agent

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
