About Western Australia
Perth is most likely Western Australia's best known city and it is also the capital of Western Australia. It has a population of about 2 million people, which makes it Australia's fourth most populous state.
The local economy is mainly driven by the extraction and processing of a diverse range of mineral and petroleum commodities. This results in the production of 58% of Australia's mineral and energy exports.
The assessment is arguably the most critical step in your immigration journey. It is from this assessment that Expressions of Interest and invitations to apply for a visa stems.
Here are two simple rules to follow:
- Only deal with licensed immigration agents. Intergate Emigration has a fully licensed adviser - Katrin Maja O'Flynn. You can view her details on the official Migration Agents Authority website here.
- Do not be fooled by Australian DIBP Offshore ID numbers. These numbers are not a sign of an agent outside of Australia being licensed or having the backing of the Australian government. A DIBP number is issued for administrative purposes only to agents outside of Australia. In short, the agent you're dealing with is not registered and are not backed by MARA.
The golden rule? If you cannot find an agent on the MARA website, do not deal with them.
