5 Reasons Why Filipinos Should Use a Registered Australian Migration Agent

Whether you are planning to apply for a working visa or want to sponsor someone from the Philippines to migrate to Australia, the chances of your visa application being approved significantly increases when you use a Registered Australian Migration Agent.


Registered Australian migration agents provide immigration assistance to visa applicants. They can provide advice on your visa requirements as well as lodge a visa application on your behalf.


Take note, a migration agent must be REGISTERED with the Office of the Migration Agents Registration Authority (MIRA). I’m putting emphasis on the word “registered,” as it is illegal in Australia for anyone to give immigration advice without being a registered agent.


But then, anyone can lodge his/her visa applications themselves. Why bother coursing it through a migration agent? These are five reasons why Filipinos should use a registered Australian Migration Agent.

Lastly, registered migration agents are obligated to manage your money in a separate account until all the necessary services have been provided. Their accounts are continually audited.


By using a registered migration agent, you won’t run the risk of losing your hard-earned money.
