The Application Process


For most Australian visa applications, we follow the following process:

Pre Visa Application

The first step is a consultation to assess which visa is the best option for you. We will ask you questions about your goals and your pesonal situtation to see which visas might suit you, and whether you can meet their criteria.

We then work with you to collect all the relevant paperwork, write an application for you, and submit it on your behalf - giving your application the best chance of success.

Post Visa Application

Once the application has been submitted, we will follow up with the Australian Government to check on the application's status and keep you informed of its progress.

Final Decision of the Application

After your application has been approved, you must comply with any conditions that attach to the visa. We will explain these to you and anything you need to do to comply with your visa.

We expect your application to be successful but if for any reason it is not, we will explain to you why this has happened and what options are available to you for an appeal or re-application.

Dear Work Visa Lawyers,

I would like to say a big thank to your guys and I am really appreciate how the support has been for last four months working on my 190 state sponsored permanent visa.

My situation is really tricky and I have been rejected by the state nomination when I first tried to apply by myself. Then I decided to look for help from Chris who was highly recommended by one of my friends. Luckily, my state nomination was successfully approved after Chris’ magic.

Once the trust is built, I decided to let Chris to deal with my 190 visa submission as well. We submit the documents around early November (2016) and I was granted the permanent residency on 17th December, 2016. In other words, the whole process takes less than two months. I almost break the records among who I heard has been granted the permanent residency visa!!!!

I would highly recommend Work Visa Lawyers to all of you who are intending to live/ work in Australia for a long term purposes!

Thank you all the team members from Work Visa Lawyers

Best wishes,

Wenru Pan
