Hi,
I'm interested in moving to, and working in Australia. But the problem seems to be that identifying a decent agent to sort the visa faff, is a difficult task. Does anyone know/or have used a migration agent worth their salt?

Thanks.

Hi there,

Welcome to the forum.

George Lombard and The Emgiration Group have really good reputations, so has Go Matilda.

Always make sure that the agent you use is MIA/MARA registered. Usually the first consultation is free, approach at least 3 companies and compare what they will do for their fees.

we used an agent but there are a lot of fellow forumers who did not, i think most of the people in the forum are filing the application on their own and once they get stuck theyc ome here and ask. it entirely depends on how much research time you put into it, how lazy you are and how much time you have (if age is running against you then go for an agent).

Hi
We used Concept Australia based in Manchester (but think they have other offices now elsewhere)
They were excellent, they kept us informed all through the migration process, and they will only take your application if they feel you will meet the criteria that the Australian Government are looking for.
Good luck with your search

Hi - we are currently using Concept Australia too and they have been excellent so far. As the pp said, they will not submit your application and take your money if they didn't think that you would be successful in your application request. I am using Graham from the Kent office.

Hi Laura,
We used Steven and Martin from Manchester they were excellent, and we had peace of mind that they wouldn't take any money from us until they thought we would be successful.
