Nominated occupation: Software Engineer ANZSCO Code 261313

Date of visa application: 9 December 2016

Date of visa grant: 10 February 2017

 

I had the pleasure of working with Christine on 2 occasions - First time for my 457 visa sponsored by and second time when I was applying for my skilled migration subclass 189.

Throughout the process of both the applications, she has been really pro-active, meticulous and really fast. Her attention to details and really good time management makes her stand out as an agent. Due to her extensive knowledge of the visa laws, she was able to guide us in the right direction, whenever we were doing something wrong. Also, her compassion and genuine care for the clients makes her stand out from other migration agents out there.

Both me and my wife highly recommend her for anything related to visas and migration. Wishing... Read more

Business Investment Migration

Re: State Sponsored Business Owner Visa Subclass 892 visa

Occupation: Business Owner
Email received on 28 March 2014
Dear Chris and Christine I would like to take this opportunity to thank both of you very much,on the behave of my son Michael and myself,for the great news that our permanent resident visa has been granted.We are delighted. I first contacted Chris after being unsuccessful in an attempt to apply for the second part of a two part state sponsored business owner visa myself.I withdrew my application because certain things did not quite marry up to DIAC requirement. Chris was very helpful with all his knowledge, he explained to me all my options and what they entailed.During this consultation I soon realised that without the advise and help from someone like Chris it would be very difficult for me to be successful with the application,when meeting the requirements of DIAC, and the importance of getting everything very correct. After the first couple of meetings,Christine looked after our case.Just like Chris she was completely professional and extremely helpful,always at hand for any questions,and just simply lovely and understanding. Within seven months of the application being lodged we had our good news.This came much sooner than we thought,and

Partner and Family Migration

Visa Type: Partner (Provisional) (class UF) Partner (Provisional) (subclass 309) visa

Date of Visa Application: 30 August 2016
Date of Visa Grant: 17 January 2017

Dear Chris,

Sumalee, Aelwin and myself are absolutely delighted at receiving the Partner (Provisional) Visa subclass 309 for Sumalee and Aelwin. We received these visas’ in 5 months from application date which is an outstanding result given that the usual processing time frame is 6 -18 months. I believe this result was achieved by the first class preparation of our application by Michelle Petty-Sampson. Michelle made sure that every detail was attended to and provided every piece of documentation that the DIBP assessing officer would need ….. and indeed sent them more than they were asking for. Our application needed no further information to be supplied which is a big delaying factor in assessing applications. Chris Johnston with his vast experience made sure that our application was as strong as it could possibly be……. particularly as Sumalee and Aelwin were immigrating from Thailand rated a “high risk” country by DIBP for arranged marriages and visa overstays.

Without any hesitation we would recommend Work Visa Lawyers highly and cannot stress enough the value of using a skilled Migration Agent... Read more

Work Visa Lawyers are exceptional in every way.  After having 2 other ‘professional’ visa firms fail to assist me secure an existing 457 visa holder as a new employee, I located Chris and his team.  I cannot speak highly enough of Chris, his team and the level of professionalism and expertise displayed from start to finish.  Where others had failed me completely Work Visa Lawyers succeeded.  I firmly believe the positive outcome was a direct result of them understanding the intricacies of Immigration and Visa applications fully in addition to having a passion for the people seeking their services – meaning you feel like Chris and his team are invested in your achieving your desired outcome.

By the time I met with Chris I had spent 1.5 years working with other firms and was incredibly frustrated with the complacency, genuine lack of focus on the end result and sense of being nothing more than a dollar figure.  For me securing this individual meant an enormous amount to my personal and professional future, so I was heavily invested.  From the initial...

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.
