First, let me answer your main questions: what is a registered migration agent and how to find one.
What is a registered migration agent?
In order to make sure that you are eligible to apply or to find out more information about certain visa applications, it is recommended that you use the services of a registered migration agent. They have specialist knowledge regarding Australian Immigration Laws and are eligible to handle your application.
How do I find a registered migration agent?
The Australian Government keeps a register of Agents. You can find out if the agent is registered at the MARA website. Enter the agent’s surname. The website then tells you their status. (You can schedule an appointment with us using this link, and searching for Deepak (MARN: 1464159)
Let’s move on to why you should apply for your visa through a registered migration agent:
Gaining correct knowledge: There are several subclasses of visas to apply for. By using the services of a registered migration agent, you will find out which subclass visa best suits you. Obtaining the correct information from the start is definitely the key to a successful application. This will save you from spending thousands on unnecessary courses, application fees and costs to review your application if it is refused.
Saves your time and money: It will also save a lot of your time and energy knowing your application is being handled by experts. Initially, a registered agent might seem like a huge expense but it is an investment because of how convenient it is. The agent will make sure that you meet all the requirements, guide you throughout the entire process as well as submit a strong application on your behalf.
They can be held accountable if something goes wrong: Every registered migration agent has to follow a specific set of codes and ethics. For example If your application is refused, a migration agent can help you with your appeal and represent you in your dealings with the AAT.
Gain expert advice: A registered migration agent will guide you throughout your visa process, providing you with expert advice. They are constantly updated about changes in requirements and regulations for visa applications, so your research time and hassle to gather all the correct documents is completely cut out.
Peace of mind: The main reason most people opt for a registered migration agent. The reality is that Australia’s migration laws are complex, and it is likely that someone who is unfamiliar with the process would be unaware of all the ‘ins and outs’ and intricacies of the system. This is even more so in the current climate with the migration laws constantly changing. To ensure that you gain the best and most effective result based on your individual circumstances, you need to have an in-depth understanding of how these laws apply in practice as well as the latest developments and how they affect your application. Registered Migration Agents practice exclusively in this one area of the law only, and utilise their knowledge, skills and experience to guide you through the application process, which can often be a stressful time for you. Their goal is to help you to achieve a positive result and to make the process as easy and seamless as possible.
