Important information

There is one golden rule to follow when you plan on migrating to Australia – only deal with licensed immigration agents.

To find out if the agent you're dealing with, simply look for them on the MARA website. You can use the surname to find the agent and their credentials.

Our licensed advisers's name is Katrin Maja O'Flynn and you can view her details on the Migration Agents Authority website here.

Another word of caution: Beware of agents outside of Australia with an Australian DIBP Offshore ID. This ID is issued for administrative purposed only. It is not a credential and does not represent an endorsement of the agent by the Australian government. In short, you are not dealing with a registered agent and does not have the security of MARA's backing.
