    Immigration Law Services


    All Visa Applications

    We can guide you to obtain the right kind of visa and assist with the entire process of obtaining the visa. Below are the links to different kind of visas currently offered in Australia.

    State Migration Plan

    State/Territory nominated visa options are very popular due to the availability of a range of occupations in demand in each region.

    Visa Refusal and Cancellation

    Visa Cancellation or refusal can be stressful. You may be able to lodge an appeal for review of the decision of cancellation or refusal of your visa at the AAT if you are eligible.

    Employer Sponsorship

    Employer Sponsored visa enables regional employers to address identified labour shortages within their region by sponsoring skilled workers where employers can't source an appropriately skilled Australian worker.

    Partner Visa

    The spouse/partner visa category is little different than other visas. In spouse/partner visa, you lodge combined application for both temporary SC 820 and permanent SC 801 visa at the same time.

    AAT Appeal

    If you receive an unfavourable outcome of your visa application from the Department, you may be eligible for review of that decision in the AAT. Appeals must be lodged within a strict time limit.

    Ministerial Intervention

    Ministerial Intervention is usually the last option for people looking to have their issues considered. Hence, it is essential that your case is submitted to the Minister in the best possible way. With our skills and knowledge, will assist you better in presenting the case that meets the Minister’s guidelines.


    Citizenship is acquired by descent or conferral in Australia. Citizenship by birth is not automatically granted to children of non-citizens. In some cases, a child born in Australia from non-citizen parents can be granted citizenship after their 10th birthday.

    Character Provision

    Australian Department of Home Affairs may refuse or cancel a visa application if the visa applicant does not pass the character check. Some of the reasons a person may fail the character test are when the individual has a substantial criminal record or when the individual may represent a threat to the Australian community.
