Using a Migration Agent - Avoid being scammed


Beware of Visa Scams


To avoid being scammed,  we suggest:


1. You use the official websiste  of the Department of Home Affairs to apply for the various online visas.

2. Check the Register of Migration Agents on the OMARA website, to receive the protections of an OMARA registered Migration Agent.  There are Australian registered migration agents working all around the world in countries such as Israel, India, the United Kingdom, China and New Zealand, just to name a few. These agents are subject to the same Code of Conduct, professional development and regulations as registered migration agents based in Australia.
