Who can assist you with your visa application?

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 three fully licensed advisers. You can view their details 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.
