4 Uncomfortable truths about emigrating – Plus the good news

/ / Immigration to Australia, Our latest posts

truths about emigratingIt’s no secret that emigrating is a huge undertaking. Especially if you’re a family doing it!

However, most people entering the emigration process do not fully realise what lies ahead.

Is it worth it? Of course! You’re opening doors to new opportunities and a better life for yourself and your family.

But how do you prepare yourself for the emigration journey? A good way to start is by reading the below.

You’re going to have a lot of admin to do

Many applicants are surprised by the amount of admin that’s involved in the application.

You have to gather the required documents, complete the necessary paperwork, do the applicable tests, and apply for professional registrations if your occupation asks for it.

Everything has to happen at the right time too and it also has to happen in a way or format that meets Immigration Australia’s requirements.

The good news

Our immigration advisers can guide you through everything that’s required and ensure that it happens as it should. Our team even go as far as booking English tests for you. Leaving you with more time to focus on those behind-the-scenes things.

Your emigration might not happen as quickly as you’d like

If you’re like the average person who wants to emigrate, you basically want to do it immediately! You can’t wait to pack your bags and get on that aeroplane. And who can blame you? Australia is a dream destination.

Unfortunately your emigration might not always happen as quickly as you’d hope. Sometimes, for instance, Immigration Australia could take a bit longer to process a visa because there has been a high volume of applications.

The good news

You can rest assured that we always compile your application as quickly as possible to submit it as soon as possible. And while we cannot influence Immigration Australia in any way, we do undertake to ensure that you’re never left in the dark about what’s happening with your application.

Emigration is not cheap

There are a lot of costs involved in emigrating, from paying the movers to putting down a deposit on a place to stay or importing your pet. You’ll also have to pay government fees and you might need to pay for English tests and registrations too.

The good news

Here’s what you don’t want to do – part with any money without knowing if you’re eligible for emigration. This is why we offer a free initial assessment. This assessment tells you whether or not you do qualify for emigration. It’ll also give you a good idea of the initial costs, so that you can draw up a better budget.

Emigration is not for the faint-hearted

It is almost guaranteed that your stress and anxiety levels will rise during the application process. Mostly because it’s an unfamiliar process and because it’s such an important step in your life.

The good news

Our advisers will see to it that don’t have to go through it alone. Our team will always ensure that your stress and anxiety is kept to a minimum by seeing to it that all requirements are met, and by giving you realistic timelines and expectations.

Here’s what some of our recent clients had to say:


We are delighted to receive the news that our visa has been approved!

On behalf of my family I thank you and your team for your dedication and sense of urgency right through the application process. Thank you for your guidance and professionalism throughout the journey.

We are privileged to be in position of the visa and we know it wouldn’t have been possible without your valued contribution.

We will definitely recommend you to our friends and family.
