All people from foreign countries must have a visa to enter Australia. It should be a rather simple process, but depending on your country of origin and your situation, it might become more complicated than you originally thought. Some countries, like Thailand, are considered high risk countries, and demands further paperwork to decide whether or not a visa will be granted. There’s, however, no guarantee that a visa will be granted even on these premises. These are the types of situations where you might benefit from hiring a migration agent.
What the migration agent can do for you
The major reason for why you might need help with filling in your visa application and adding extra information is that, as an immigrant from a high risk country, you’ll need to prove that you in fact are a tourist. Getting the help from migration agents will put a seal of approval on your application just by being looked at by a professional, even if you are responsible for all the information in your application. If you’re looking to find a job in Australia, you might have to provide even further information. You might have to provide proof that you, in fact, are licensed to do the job that you claim to do. If you don’t have the proper identification for this, a migration agent might help you with looking for the right documents, or help you prove your profession in other ways.
Different fees for different work
If your worrying about how much the services of a migration agent will cost, you should know that it all depends on you and your situation. If you are looking for a tourist visa for yourself and have all the information about your stay ready, the process will be quick and with the lowest fee. Essentially, the migration agent charges you for their time, which makes the fee increase under special circumstances that takes a lot of the agent’s time. If you are applying for a visa for temporary work, while also wanting to include a child or significant other on the application, it will take longer and is going to cost more. An experienced or highly successful agent might also charge a little bit more. You can’t really lower the fee, as the migration agent bases it off of your situation, but if you’ve filled in most of your application yourself and just need help with a certain element of the visa application, the fee might be reduced.
