If you’re planning to relocate abroad, you’re probably wondering whether you should lodge your visa application through a migration agent or do it yourself. Well, using a migration agent to apply for a visa is an additional expense, and you may want to knImmigration News

In case you didn’t know, a visa application can be much more complex and daunting than you thought. From the application process to the approval stage, it might be stressful to get the visa ready for your next travel. That’s why you’ll appreciate the services offered by a migration agent. 

 

Here’s why you should apply for a visa through a migration agent.

 

  1. Migration Rules Are Dynamic

There's always something new in the migration landscape. For instance, with travel restrictions brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, we expect a lot of changes to the migration rules globally. In an attempt to slow down the spread of COVID-19, most countries have implemented restrictions on visa issuance, and you need to know about these changes before making an application.

 

Apart from overseeing the visa application process on a client’s behalf, it’s the migration agent’s job to keep up with these changes and update the clients accordingly. Some migration adjustments come with good opportunities, and not unless you’re updated, you can miss out on them. Therefore, it’s advantageous to work with a migration agent. 

 

Well, you can still follow up on these changes, but since you're preoccupied with other things, you might not get the time to do this. A migration agent will keep checking what's new in the migration landscape and implement it accordingly during the application process.

 

  1. Visa Application Is Complicated

Visa applications can be much more complicated than they appear. While most people prefer applying for a visa by themselves, the requirements are quite complicated, and they may end up with unexpected results. For instance, the Australian visa application system is very strict, and missing out on a single requirement might earn you a refusal. 

 

Most applications are rejected due to wrong documents or providing insufficient evidence to warrant a visa. To avoid such mistakes, it’s advisable to use a migration agent to apply for a visa. A migration agent has been on the job for the longest time, and so, they’re quite familiar with the dos and the don’ts. They’ll ensure all the necessary documents are uploaded and that the visa application has sufficient evidence.

 

If you choose to do the application yourself, remember that the fee you pay during the application is non-refundable. Therefore, in case the application bounces, you'll have to bear the loss. Additionally, a visa refusal might tarnish your immigration record and affect your chances of success in the future. So, why not get an expert to do it and save yourself the stress and cost that comes with it.

 

  1. Dealing With The Migration Department Is Difficult

With an increasing number of visa applications every other day, the migration department is becoming less accessible. Nowadays, they prefer dealing with clients online to reduce traffic at the migration offices. While this is good news for those who like accessing things at a click, it’s sometimes difficult to reach them in case you have a query. 

 

Since the visas are processed by different teams, you don’t have a specific person handling your file. As such, it might be difficult to discuss any circumstance applying specifically to your case. Letting a migration agent do the application on your behalf will save you the stress. They’ll ensure your case is properly documented to limit the requests from the migration department. Additionally, in case you get requests from the department, they’ll guide you on the information to provide and how to go about it. Better still, they can escalate issues to the management, in case there’s a problem to be resolved. 

 

  1. You Need To Explore Available Options

Before you apply for a visa, you must consider all the available options. With new trends in the migration landscape, it’s risky to put all your eggs in one basket. You might not be aware of the relevant options until you seek help from a migration agent.

 

Usually, a migration agent will make you aware of the available options and let you choose one that’s suitable for you. In addition to this, the migration professional will help you keep your options open so that in case of any changes, you’re not left hanging in the event that the main option becomes invalid. 

 

It’s quite stressful to become a permanent resident in Australia, and so, you’ll find the services of a migration agent useful. They’ll guide you through the application process and boost your chances of success. So, save yourself the stress by letting a migration agent do it for you.

 

 

  1. Increased Chances Of Success

While it’s not a guarantee that you’ll get a positive response from the migration department, applying for a visa through a migration agent might increase your chances of success. Well, it’s not that they have a special relationship with the department, but since they know all that’s required, they’ll ensure the process is seamless. 

 

It’s without a doubt that migration agents have the necessary expertise to help you navigate through the application process. Even before initiating the application process, they’ll assess your visa eligibility to see whether you’ll be successful in the long-run. As such, there’s no trial-and-error for them. They only move forward with applications that will pass the test. So, in case there’s an issue, they resolve it from the start to increase your chances of success.

 

Conclusion

The benefits of using a migration agent are numerous. It’s quite daunting to apply for a visa by yourself, and you might get a refusal at the end of the process. While it’s an additional expense to hire a migration professional, it can save you time. Therefore, don’t hesitate to let a migration agent initiate your visa application.
