About Queensland

Situated in the north-east of Australia, Queensland (or the Sunshine Coast) is the country's second-largest and third-most populous state. It is also home to the famous Great Barrier Reef which attracts thousands of visitors each year.

Queensland is not short on attractions though and generates around $4 billion annually, accounting for roughly 4.5% of Queensland's GDP.

Important information

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
