Australian visas - know the facts

In Australia, visa requirements, laws and regulations continue to change regularly.

Following the global pandemic, the proportion of visa applications submitted by migration professionals rose, given increased uncertainty with respect to migration.

In 2023-24 permanent visa places will DROP to only 190000 places.

This includes:

  • Independent visas – 93075 places. This category aims to grow the economy and fill identified skill shortages.
  • Family and partner visas – 52500 places. This category predominantly consists of partner visa spots.
  • Employer nominated - 36825 places.

This will increase competition between applicants and add additional strain on migration professionals as applicants seek to submit higher quality, decision-ready applications.

Our experienced migration lawyers can work with you to identify the most suitable visa for you.

Frequently asked questions

What is the difference between a migration agent and a lawyer?

A lawyer must complete an accredited three-year law degree (or equivalent) and be entered into the role of practitioners of a Supreme Court in Australia. Registration as a migration agent involves a shorter course followed by an examination.

It is important that you check that a migration agent is registered with the Office of Migration Agent’s Registration Authority. Unregistered migration agents should be reported through Border Watch online.

What happens at the first consultation?

We will seek to understand your situation and wider circumstances. From this, we will be able to provide advice concerning your visa eligibility. We do not offer free consultations in relation to skilled visas.

Where are your offices?

We have access to an office network in each Australian state and territory. We can also meet with you virtually via Zoom, Microsoft Teams, or Google Meet - whichever you prefer. We also offer telephone consultations upon request.

What is the cost?

It will depend upon which visa you are applying for. We offer a set-price guarantee, so there are no hidden costs.

Can you make the process faster?

Internally within our firm, we act quickly. Our policy at Australian Migration Lawyers is to always submit a thorough application, with the aim of reducing requests for further information, which are often the cause of delays. Being experienced lawyers, we will advise you of the current trends relating to the processing times of the relevant decision-making body.

What is your success rate?

This depends on the type of visa. Being experienced lawyers, we are very good at what we do. What is important is that we understand all your circumstances so that we can explain to you what your options are.

How do I get permanent residency?

There are several pathways to permanent residency. These may or may not apply to you. Your lawyer would be pleased to discuss permanent residency with you.
