Application processing times for Adelaide

Various factors can affect the time it takes for the Department of Home Affairs to consider your visa application, including your visa subclass, the number of other applications in progress, and the quality of evidence you submit. Delays can also occur, for example, if the Department requires further evidence to support your application.

While little can be done to fast-track your application, Australian Migration Lawyers can prevent delays by thoroughly reviewing your application before submission and ensuring that the application is completed and has adequate evidence to meet the legal requirements.

Adelaide’s vibrant migration history

Adelaide's migration history is marked by various waves of settlement and diversity. The region was initially home to Indigenous peoples for thousands of years before European settlement began in 1836. The city was founded as a planned British colony, attracting a mix of free settlers, convicts, and migrants seeking new opportunities. During the gold rush era in the mid-19th century, Adelaide experienced an influx of migrants from around the world, and post-war migration welcomed waves of immigrants from Europe, and Asia, enriching the city's cultural landscape. 

Today, Adelaide continues to welcome Australian migrants, with a diverse population that contributes to its vibrant and inclusive society.

Frequently asked questions

How much does an immigration lawyer cost per hour in Adelaide?

The hourly cost of hiring an immigration lawyer in Adelaide differs between law firms, and can depend on the lawyer’s experience, the complexity of the matter, what stage of the application process you’re in, and the visa you’re applying for. 

When you choose Australian Migration Lawyers as your legal representative, you’ll be given a fixed fee rather than an hourly rate so that you have a transparent cost from the very start, avoiding any hidden surprises. We can explain this to you in your consultation.

Can I talk to an immigration lawyer for free in Adelaide?

Not all migration lawyers offer free services, with most charging an initial consultation fee, making it hard to know which firm will be the best fit for your needs. 

With Australian Migration Lawyers, we offer to meet with you so we can get to know you and your personal situation before providing you with a clear agreement for ongoing legal services. Some visa types do incur a consultation fee, but we can deduct it from your fee agreement if you decide to proceed with our services.
