Why should I use a Registered Migration Agent?
Registered Migration Agents are highly trained professionals who are required to have an up to date knowledge of Migration law, policy and procedure to be admitted to registration every year. They must also regularly attend continuing professional development courses to keep their skills up to date as a condition of registration each year. A registered Migration Agent can assist you in making sure you meet the strict legal and policy requirements and also that your application is provided to the department with all the required documentation to ensure that a speedy decision can be made on your matter.
The use of a Migration Agent does not guarantee success and in fact Migration Law strictly prohibits an agent from guaranteeing a successful outcome. It is the Department of Immigration who decides if you meet the legal and policy criteria. There are serious consequences for an agent who provides incompetent advice including sanction and deregistration. Experienced Migration Agents have demonstrated that they can provide sound advice and you would be well advised to take advantage of their expertise.
