Applying for a visa to Australia can be complex. With help from an Australian Migration Lawyer, we can untangle this complexity, and help you apply for the right visa.
The team at Australian Migration Lawyers have decades of combined experience. We have a high success rate, and do not shy away from complex cases.
The team at Australian Migration Lawyers is made up of qualified Australian lawyers who draw on their knowledge of relevant legislation and case law in advising you on your visa application, and other migration options and strategies available to you.
As lawyers, we have an obligation to ensure that your visa application is compliant with all legislative requirements for the grant of a visa, which naturally improves your chances of success. We assist you with preparing your application all the way through to the grant of your visa, including working with you to action any additional requests from the Department of Home Affairs.
With so many visa options and subsequent subclasses available, finding the one most suited to your situation can be a tricky and overwhelming process. As everyone’s circumstances are different and some are more complex than others, it’s always best to discuss your situation with a qualified professional, such as an immigration lawyer.
An immigration lawyer is extensively trained in migration law issues and will be able to advise you of your eligibility for a certain visa type, as well as help you with the application process.
The government costs vary for each visa type and you also need to factor in the cost of living while you await the outcome of your visa application. Please see further details relating to specific visas as a guide on the professional fees and Department of Home Affairs and other associated fees.
Processing times vary depending on the type of visa application you’re submitting, the backlog of visas waiting to be processed, and whether you’ve presented sufficient evidence. The latter can cause significant delays if the government request more information from you.
Processing times are subject to change. At Australian Migration Lawyers, our goal is to submit high-standard, comprehensive applications that are as complete as possible to help reduce delays.
Melbourne’s vibrant history of migration can be traced back to the 19th century when European settlers arrived during the Victorian gold rush. This influx of immigrants, primarily from Europe and China, transformed Melbourne into a thriving multicultural hub. The subsequent waves of migration included Italians, Greeks, and Eastern Europeans after World War II, followed by migrants from Asia, the Middle East, and Africa in the latter half of the 20th century.
In recent years, Melbourne's migration patterns have continued to evolve, with an increasing number of skilled migrants, international students, and refugees calling the city home. This ongoing migration has brought a wealth of cultural traditions, languages, and culinary delights to Melbourne.
At Australian Migration Lawyers, we’ll discuss fees with you during the initial consultation so you know what is involved and we can tailor a quote to your specific visa application.
Temporary visa holders are able to buy property in Melbourne and other Australian cities, however:
Some other key things to note include:
If you’ve been nominated by the Victorian Government for a subclass 190 visa (the Skilled Nominated visa), you can live and work anyway in Victoria for two years. After that time you are able to work anywhere in Australia.
Some migration law firms charge initial consultation fees which makes it hard to get advice before committing to their services.
At Australian Migration Lawyers, we offer a free consultation (for some visa categories) to discuss your visa options and any other questions you have before providing an upfront fixed fee for ongoing services. If you are seeking a consultation where a fee applies, this can be deducted from your fixed price if you choose to engage us for the application or appeal process. You can visit us in our Melbourne office Monday to Friday between 9 am and 5 pm.
