What is a registered migration agent?

At First Class Migration, we provide a professional service to those whom wish to stay temporarily or permanently in Australia.

We thought to provide an insight to our clients and prospective clients about our profession and how our expertise assists you.

In order to become a migration agent, one must have an undergraduate degree, undergo a post-graduate qualification and be subject to meeting numerous requirements in order to gain our professional registration. These requirements include tertiary qualifications, holding an adequate English language level, undergoing a character check and ensuring we hold professional indemnity insurance and access to our relevant legislation.

As a migration agent, we are bound by our Code of Conduct and the Migration Act 1958. We are held by high ethical standards and we strive to ensure our clients can trust us to manage their Australian visa status.

Without undergoing a rigorous law degree, our profession is similar to that of a lawyer. We must be tertiary qualified or have equivalent recognised prior learning, obtain registration and undergo yearly training to ensure our skills are updated and maintained. Instead of learning all aspects of law such as commercial, probate, wills and estates which a law degree provides, we solely practice migration law and our skills are particularly honed to ensure we can provide this professional service.

To us, the task of filling out a visa application is the finale to our service. We scrutinise the law to ensure our clients meet legislative requirements and review supporting documents to ascertain whether we can evidence their eligibility.

We are required to analyse the Migration Act, associated legislative regulations and pages upon pages of policy to ensure our clients have the best chance of success with their visa application.

In the 2015-16 financial year alone 189,770 individuals migrated to Australia permanently. This was just the permanent visa statistics, let alone the number of individuals travelling to Australia on Temporary visas which was in excess of 7.7 million. This number outlines only the applicants who were granted visas in Australia, not the number of those whom applied and were not successful.

Our aim, and what we work so hard for at First Class Migration, is to provide the best chance for our clients to be included in the aforementioned number of successful applicants migrating to Australia.

We hope the above has provided you with an insight as to how we can and have assisted you.

Should you require any migration assistance, please do not hesitate to contact our office.
