Getting assistance

The first point to note is that only licensed immigration agents or those exempt can give you advice that is backed up by the Migration Agents Authority.

As such, you should only deal with agents who appear on the MARA website. Intergate Emigration have a fully licensed agent - Katrin Maja O'Flynn. You can check her details on the official Migration Agents Authority website here.

Another word of caution: Beware of agents based outside of Australia with DIBP numbers. These numbers may look official but are only issued for administrative purposes. DIBP numbers are not a sign that an agent is qualified or licensed by MARA.
