There are plenty of horror stories of failed migration attempts and people parting with large sums of money only to be disappointed.
You can easily prevent this from happening to you by following two golden rules:
- Golden Rule 1
Only deal with licensed immigration agents!
You can look for agents on the official MARA website. If an agent isn't listed, it means it is not a licensed agent you're dealing with.
Intergate Emigration has a fully licensed adviser, Katrin Maja O'Flynn. You can check her credentials on the official Migration Agent Authority website here.
- Golden Rule 2
Do not let agents outside of Australia with an Australian DIBP Offshore ID fool you! DIBP numbers look official but are not.
Migration agents who operate outside of Australian do not have to be registered with the Office of MARA.
The DIBP numbers are only issued for administrative purposes. These numbers do not represent an endorsement by the Australian government of the agent.
In short – you are not dealing with a registered agent and your agent does not have the backing of MARA.
