Registered Immigration Agent for Australia - How to spot a legitimate immigration agent
When making the decision to emigrate to Australia, there is one rule you must always remember:
Only a use a registered immigration agent for Australia to provide you with immigration assistance.
This is because only registered migration agents listed on the Register of Migration Agents can legally give you immigration assistance in Australia.
You can search the Registration of Migration Agents on the website of the Migration Agents Registration Authority here.
- Always check the MARA website to make sure you are using a registered migration agent for Australia.
- Agents outside of Australia may have a DIBP number, but this does mean the agent is registered. This code is issued for admin purposes only and is not an endorsement of an agent.
Furthermore, it is important to note the Office of the MARA only has jurisdiction to consider complaints about registered migration agents.
Unlawful operators have to reported to the Department of Immigration and Border Protection’s dob-in service.
