Skilled Migration

Skilled Nominated Visa (subclass 190) Occupation: Marketing Manager

Email received on 24 February 2014

Dear Chris, Christine and Sumandeep

I would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone at Work Visa Lawyers for helping me to secure a Skilled Nominated Visa (subclass 190) with South Australian State Sponsorship.

I arrived in Australia on a Working Holiday Visa from Scotland and first met with Chris in July 2013 to discuss the possibility of applying for a permanent visa in order to extend my stay.

At the time, I was completely unsure of the immigration process, but having discussed and reviewed my skills, qualifications and work experience, Chris quickly identified the Skilled Nominated Visa as the quickest route to permanent residency.

From that first meeting, Chris was very clear about the direction which we should take and his knowledge of Australian Visa’s and the Immigration process shone through. It was also reassuring to have the support and guidance... Read more

Partner and Family Migration

Visa type: Partner (Temporary) (class UK) Partner (subclass 820) visa
Date Visa Application Lodged: 19 September 2017
Date Visa Granted: 26 March 2018

Thank you to Work Visa Lawyers for all their help in securing our partner visa (part A). Our concerns were always responded to promptly and we received comprehensive advise on information required throughout the process, with sensitive responses managed professionally and without bias. Chris Johnston has been instrumental throughout this process, and while we settled in for a 12-18 month wait, it actually only took 6 months from application to confirmation. We still have part B to complete, and will be continuing our relationship with Work Visa Lawyers. By engaging a visa lawyer specialist it has assured us that all information is correctly presented and our best case has been put forward.

Following this we are looking forward to planning our great escapes touring Australia.

We would recommend Work Visa Lawyers to anyone seeking advice and service. All the team are friendly, approachable and professional.

Chris and Liz

From: United Kingdom
Testimonial received: 23 May 2016

Dear Chris,

I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for everything that you did helping us to gain my temporary partner visa and health waiver.

At a time that was overwhelming and confusing, your calm manner really helped to focus us at every step of the way. You made a clear plan of the information and documents we needed to gather and kept us informed throughout the process.

Living in the country it was great that we could Skype you to discuss progress rather than having to make the 4 hour round trip. I really appreciated that you were honest and didn’t make any promises about what could be achieved.

From: United States of America
Testimonial received: 30 June 2018

My family and I found ourselves in a difficult position after our 457 visa was denied unexpectedly. Work Visa Lawyers gave solid advice concerning our options and helped us strategize the best course of action to successfully obtain a 408 visa and overcome an accidental overstay by my family. Specifically, Christina Lien was extremely responsive and proactive, contacting us regularly and staying mindful of our timeline. We are very pleased with the final outcome, as my family is now reunited and our 408 has been approved much faster than anticipated.
