How much visa cost?2019-08-08T15:43:50+10:00

Our favorite question. Often people think we have lost our minds or we are spuriously secretive, once they hear the answer. Well, neither.

Until few years back, Immigration visa fee were straight forward- one application, one fee, increase and changes once a year in July. Our fees bank than, was the same- one simple fee.

Since than much had changed, but let me explain from the beginning.

There are two main components you must consider when applying for visa: Disbursements and Fees

Disbursement is all paid by a solicitor to a third party and then claimed back from the client.

Deepens on a visa type, you may expect following disbursements:

  • Visa fee paid to Immigration Department
  • Australian Federal police Fee
  • State Sponsorship Fee
  • Nomination and Sponsorship Fee
  • and much more

Fee section is what you pay as a service for Agent work.

  • It can be hourly fee
  • Lump sum fee
  • Fee for part of work being done or all
  • Fee for additional services required by you etc

As Registered Migration Agents are closely monitored in Australia, when you decide to use services of Registered Agency you may expect fees being somewhere between brackets suggested by Immigration Department, which are considered Standard Market Fee.- you can read more about Immigration Agent Visa  Fees Advice 

Those may vary based on agent experience, location, qualifications etc

Prices we  publish are as close to what we can offer you as possible. Those are a usual brackets.

How do I complete the questionnaire?2019-08-01T10:53:19+10:00

There is a portal message which you receive when we send you the client questionnaire, you must ensure you read this as it informs you of how to open/use the client questionnaire for different computers. Please ensure you DOWNLOAD the client questionnaire to your computer and THEN EDIT it, you cannot edit it from the portal –  otherwise you wont save your work. You need to ensure you answer every question, and you answer them correctly – if your questionnaire is rejected more than 3 times we can begin to charge you at an hourly rate to fix this for you.

Do I need to use portal? Why?2019-08-01T10:48:09+10:00

Yes, portal should be the application you use to send all requested documents to us, this is a safe platform where we can send/request documents from you – documents are not accepted via email anymore due to potential virus threats. Portal also shows you specific messages for each document & records the dates you have sent or received documents for the application.

How we can help you with this visa?

  • ASSESS- We will look at your case from every point of view to ensure we are approaching from the best angle. By analysing and assessing your case, we will lay the foundation of working through your individual situation and potential migration.

  • ADVICE – Once we know the general situation and have looked at all angles, we will provide you with the best possible advice and options to ensure the best outcome. Once the client makes a decision, we will move onto more detailed planning to move forward with the process.

  • PLAN – After we have reviewed your case, we will begin the planning process. Once we know what we can do, we can dig into the details and figure out exactly what is the best way to secure success in your case. Sometimes this can be a straight forward process, but oftentimes it involves many steps, where we have to fill out different applications and research what kind of information and skills you may need to move forward. This is an important part of the process to ensure each and every client is comfortable with their plans, their future and where they are spending their money.

  • SUPPORT & GUIDE – Once a client commits to the plan we have mapped out for them, we will start gathering documents and preparing applications. Clients are guided through the process, where we will help with the ‘how,’ ‘what,’ and ‘when’ of the documents and applications they will need. We will be here for any questions you have and help you through the entire process.

  • REPRESENTATION – Once we have collected all the documentation that we need, it’s time to start tackling actionable steps. We will lodge applications and analyse documents, preparing and presenting them in the best way that will work for our clients. We will do research on your behalf, writing our own explanations, helping to strengthen your case.

  • DETERMINATION AND DEFENSE  – Next, the decision will be made on your case, prompting us about what to do next. In the event that we believe the wrong decision was made, we will work on your behalf to defend your case in order to gain the best possible results.

This comment should appear here a long time ago …. and there are really no words that would express my gratitude for help in our very complicated matter.
In particular, our greatest thank you to Piotr, who during a casual chat on Skype easily picked up the mistake of our previous agent, who could have caused that our whole family would be threatened back to the country …. as it turned out it was a very complicated matter and we had to act immediately.
