We cannot thank Chris and his team (Katie, Karina, etc...) enough for their amazing work! We originally got warmly referred to them by a couple of friends, who had been delighted by their services. As far as we have been concerned, Work Visa Lawyers has demonstrated the intelligence and expertise we were absolute desperate to find. Work Visa Lawyers provided my employer with an outstanding level of assistance and guided them through the RSMS 187 visa sponsorship process. In the end, although my employer had never sponsored anyone before, our visa application was not only successful but was also processed more quickly than other applications that we had heard of. Thank you again, Work Visa Lawyers for your help!

Visa Type: Subclass 457 (Temporary Work (Skilled)) visa - Nomination

Date Application Submitted: 15 August 2016

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 meeting with Chris I could see he understood that and it mattered to him.  A little over 3 months after my initial meeting I have secured my new employee and I can’t express my gratitude enough. Anyone seeking genuine assistance and the best chance at succeeding with your application you cannot choose a better firm than Work Visa Lawyers. 

Absolutely outstanding.

Testimonial from Oscar's on Unley

Visa Matter: 457 visa application - Additional criteria applicable to non-citizens who do not hold a substantive visa

Additional Information: The applicant applied for a new 457 visa while holding a 457 visa as a secondary applicant. While waiting for the new 457 visa to be approved, the prior 457 visa was cancelled. This then required the applicant to demonstrate factors beyond his control as well as compelling and compassionate reasons for his new 457 visa to be approved. The business sponsor contacted Work Visa Lawyers to handle the additional requirement for the visa to be approved.

Response date: 27 June 2016
Visa approved date: 29 July 2016

I contacted Work Visa Lawyers following a very disappointing experience in the handling of our immigration matters from a previous Agent / Consultancy firm. Due to the prior mishandling, my business and an employee’s Visa application was placed in sudden jeopardy.

Work Visa Lawyers responded to an urgent situation with incredible efficiency and professional capacity. Their consideration of the issues and strategic advice led to a successful application where they provided to the Department genuine compelling and compassionate reasons for a Visa to be granted. This has resulted in our business deservedly being able to employ a capable and experienced overseas worker who is critical to our continued growth.

It is with much gratitude from us all here we acknowledge Chris & Sean and Work Visa Lawyers team for their effort in our matter.

We can sincerely recommend their professional service without hesitation.
