Why use a Registered Migration Agent?

If you are wondering whether you should use a Registered Migration Agent or not, we can recommend watching the helpful video below. It is from the Office of the Migration Agents Registration Authority (MARA) which is part of the Australian Department of Immigration and Border Protection. You can watch the video in the following languages: English, Arabic, Farsi, Russian, Mandarin, Urdu and Vietnamese.

Did you know that:

  • Only if you use an agent who is registered with the MARA, you are protected by consumer rights.
  • Only MARA registered agents have the required qualifications and knowledge in Australian immigration law.
  • Only MARA registered agents fulfil the strict requirements set by MARA, e.g. up to date and comprehensive library with all required Australian laws and policies, continuing professional development and mandatory insurances.

    I think it makes sense that you would want to hire a migration agent. Otherwise you run the risk of not having your paperwork done correctly! You wouldn’t want to get persecuted for that, after all. Thanks for sharing!

    That’s right; it’s worth it to spend the money for a good migration agent to provide advice and assist with visa applications. In Australia, migration agents have to be registered by the Migration Agents Registration Authority (MARA). This means there is a high standard of agents and compulsory training about the newest migration legislation and policies.
    Be careful with agents outside of Australia! Most of them are not registered and it appears they don’t have the appropriate knowledge.
    Always check the MARN number of the agent on the MARA website. It tells you if the agent is registered and a few more details. 1678604 is the MARN number of Northern Immigration Australia; we are registered and have a 100% success rate – ALL of our visa applications have been approved!

    I think it would make migration a lot easier if you worked with an agent that was registered. You then didn’t have to worry if you were doing the right things I really like that you mention the reasons why you should use a registered agent because I could see it being hard to do.

      Thank you for your comment, Charles. Australian immigration law is very complex indeed, and it is constantly changing. At Northern Immigration Australia we make sure that we always keep up to date with current laws and regulations. As a registered migration agent the Department of Immigration as well as the Migration Institute of Australia notifies us of upcoming changes and the introduction of new laws and visas. It’s of utmost importance to us to always provide the best advice to our clients with regards to the most up to date legislation. Please contact us with your visa questions!

    Thanks for explaining the importance of hiring a registered migration agent. You make a great point about how it will ensure that your paperwork is filed and processed correctly. I think it could also make sure that your agent has experience dealing with other migration cases. I am getting ready to move to Australia, so it seems like it would be best for me to start looking for a migration agent. Your migration agency seems professional and trustworthy. I really liked reading your testimonials and how you are helping clients from all over the world. I will get in touch with you!
