Availing help of professional migration agent to migrate to Australia

It is not an easy task when one is immigrating to a different country. It can be excruciating for some, in fact, who may feel that government officials in Australia are doing everything to dissuade you from entering its territory, even if it is not true. This is where services of an immigration consultant would help you. This is because they are professionals and must have seen hundreds of applicants, some of whom might have been more discouraged than you. They can not only assist you in getting a visa, but also have the ability to counsel you when you have given up all hope.

Cutting to the chase, did you know that the Land Down Under as Australia is also referred to offers more than hundred types of visas! But, remember, you have to exhibit patience and never give up even if takes a long time. It also not the intention of the government of Australia to dissuade immigrants, but it wants to make sure that by putting a place a stringent process, it will import the most eligible candidates into its territory. If you avail the services of an Australian immigration agent, you would be better placed to understand different migration laws with his/her guidance and assistance. The advantage the migration agents offer you is that they know how to hasten the process of migration to Oz. Their experience and expertise would also aid you because they understand the fine print of each of these over 100 plus migration visa types.

A Migration Agent has a thorough knowledge of each of these visas and the laws and regulations that are linked to them. For a person looking to migrate to Australia, finding the right visa to offer them the greatest chances of entry can be frustrating. With the services of a Migration Agent you can work with a person who can get your details and identify the best visa to help support your efforts, qualify for a visa, and limit any restrictions which might be associated with the visa.

We need not reiterate the fact that migrating from one country to another is a once-in a-lifetime experience as that which will change your life forever. You only improve your chances when you hire a registered migration agent in Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Perth and Brisbane, besides other big cities. Ensure also that you make use of the services of a MARA (Migration Agents Registration Authority) recognized agent. By the way, office of the MARA is affiliated to the DIBP (Department of Immigration and Border Protection). 

Another thing one has to bear in mind is that each of Australia’s states and territories has their own set of laws, though to an outsider it may seem like a homogeneous country. The skills shortages also vary from one state or province to the other. It has six states and two territories. The territories are: the Australian Capital Territory (ACT), which surrounds the capital city of Canberra, and the other is Northern Territory (NT), which is situated on the northern coast of the Land of Plenty. Its capital is Alice Springs. The six states are New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria and Western Australia.

Celebrate the power of love, coz it’s the same through ages and never changes

Suggestions for emigrants to Australia

Before applying to migrate to Australia, understand which visa class you may be eligible for as there are visa classes running into hundreds in Australia. Check out the DIBP website or speak to an accredited migration agent to find out which class you truly fit into. In fact, many MARA (Migration Agents Registration Authority) approved migration agents offer online evaluations.
We would like to digress here as we would like to state where most people would like to migrate to in Australia. They would consider the big five cities - Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth. That is because they are considered cosmopolitan, offer a better quality of life and work opportunities and are internationally connected.
Make sure you have all the required documents such as birth certificate, valid passport, documents of identity with you. Take their photocopies and keep the originals in a secure place, especially where you can easily access them.
Though Australia may seem like a homogeneous country, each city, province and state differs from the other in more ways than one. Therefore, the job opportunities, way of life and the rules vary from region to region. All this information, of course, can be sourced from Internet, authoritative books on Australia and by paying a visit to the Australian consulate closest to you.
The DIBP expects that to apply in a proper fashion one must use the latest version of each form, failing which your application will not be accepted as they would qualify it as improper. For your information, the versions of forms can change very frequently, so you need to check if the version is of the latest date.

Another thing you need to bear in mind while applying for a visa is that you inform your immediate previous employers that you have plans of relocating to Australia as DIBP would contact them. Keep ready your pay slips or put them at least on your Internet so that you can take their printouts.  These are most important as they are the key to your employment – the basis on which your visa may get rejected or approved.
In addition, DIBP would like to know if the duties you discharged in your previous employments are the ones which are relevant to your nominated occupation. When you give your employer references, make sure you provide adequate information about their total sphere of work. This will only buttress your chances of bagging a visa.

Honesty doesn’t hurt. In fact, it only portrays you in a positive light, which is what will satisfy both the immigration authorities and your future employers. For instance, if you have been convicted in even a minor case, you MUST declare it. With technology, no one can keep their falsely keep their record squeaky clean by pushing unpleasant things under the carpet. It would eventually be found out and the attendant embarrassment that comes with it can be truly humiliating. It can ruin your entire career, and if you are sent back, chances of getting a job even in you home country would be remote.

Also, make sure that you submit your application well ahead of the last date. Inadvertent delays do happen and you just cannot prevent them.  Here, most importantly, when dealing with DIBP, respond to all of their requests promptly. It also does matter for your application to be approved.

Please remember that emigration is once-in –a-lifetime investment, which is why you cannot afford to be slacking off at any stage of your application process. It is also an investment as it would be painful if your application is rejected. These are, in fact, the most important things you cannot afford to forget. You need to, therefore, carry enough money that you can expend on a rainy day.

Be very patient when application is not processed swiftly as just like in India, bureaucracy in government departments can be painful to put up with. So bide your time when all of this is happening. It might happen very quickly for some people, but that can be attributed to pure luck. So if it happens to your friend, do not assume that you are unlucky.

If all this sounds frightening to you, it frankly was not the intention of this writer. It is not really as scary as it seems and besides these suggestions are meant only to make you extra cautious. 

As we have stated above, you cannot understate the importance of a MARA. If you are looking for a registered migration agent in Melbourne or for that matter in any other city in the Land Down Under, you will surely come across one if you research meticulously.  When you have decided to hire one, do not hesitate to ask them what may seem trivial. Do not be EMBARASSED at any stage when posing them any questions. It is after all their business to be patient. That entails them to be tolerant while listening to all your concerns. Do not hold back as this is the most important career decision of your whole life.  Moving to a country to spend the remainder of your life is not a matter you can trifle with!!!
