Why Consult an Immigration Lawyer

Are you thinking about making the move to Australia? Many people write their visa applications themselves, only to have their application rejected because they aren't familiar with all the legal requirements. Australia's immigration laws are complicated and always changing and if you get it wrong, you will lose your application fees and you may even be barred from applying again. If you want the best chance of having your Australian visa application approved the first time, you should consult an immigration lawyer in Australia. At Work Visa Lawyers, we give your application the best chance of success.

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.
