Profound thanks to Chris, Wendy and Team.

Without the expertise of the team I doubt if I would have made through the legal process of obtaining my 491 visa effortlessly. Miss Wendy kept me informed and guided me throughout the entire visa process.

Even during these tough times (COVID-19) where visa procedures were taking longer than usual, Wendy kept in constant touch to update me of my options. I pat myself for having chosen the right visa lawyers which made the job look so simple. I would personally recommend to my friends and contacts for I would be doing them a favor by guiding them in the right direction.

Now that I have my peace of mind, I once again thank you for the services rendered. 

A very satisfied client!

A big thank you to Luke Edwards for his effort and dedication to our visa application. We were so excited to receive the grant of Permanent Residency news. We felt well informed and confident about each step. Thank you for your professionalism throughout this long process. At times it was very exhausting and emotional. Thank you for your supportive words when times were tough for us.

We would recommend Luke and Work Visa Lawyers to anyone seeking to migrate to Australia

Work Visa Lawyers, Torrensville, were recommended to us by a close friend when we asked for his advice on a trustworthy, honest and efficient Lawyer / Visa agent to help us with our Permanent Residency Application. That was the best advice he could have given us.

Beginning with our first meeting with Wendy (Wenting), we knew we were in safe hands. Wendy is kind, friendly, thorough, supportive and while she may ask for what seems like ‘a million’ documents, she knows her job, and does it well.

What appealed to me the most was her promptness in replying to emails and returning phone calls. As one will appreciate, applying for Permanent Residency can be quite stressful even if you know you meet the conditions set by the Department of Immigration. However, Wendy always managed to put our minds at ease.

We would highly recommend Wendy and Chris, Work Visa Lawyers, Torrensville, without reservation, to any person seeking to apply for Permanent Residency. We found them amazing, and I am certain, you will too!

I am very grateful for Work Visa lawyers for the service provided. I engaged Work Visa lawyers to approach the further information request received from the Immigration. After the initial consultation I have got my Permanent Residency granted within several weeks. The advice given to me by Chris was very specific, professional, and focused. This advice was heavy reliant on migration legislation and best practice. I appreciate the effort Work Visa lawyers did in collection of relevant information, similar cases, and migration legislation enforcement.

I did receive a Permanent Residency as a result of their consultation and work. I believe that Work Visa lawyers is one of the best companies to approach on the market for professional help with migration matters.

Thank you.

Dear Chris and Wendy,
Thank you so much for working together with me through my entire process of applying for a 190 Visa. Wendy has been extremely helpful and definitely thorough in her work. It wasn't always smooth sailing especially when we are met in between with a pandemic, but nonetheless, I am so grateful I received my PR status at the end and especially with no major delays. Thank you again to Wendy for being so responsive and replying to all my emails and questions timely and well. For easing my worries and updating me regularly with changes to the regulations. For being encouraging when I needed to take my PTE after years of not attending university. Now 6 months after the process began, I am finally a PR and I can continue to build my life here in Australia with my partner. Thank you for being there for me and I will definitely continue to use their services if needed in future.
Love Claudia

Having waited for some time for an opportunity to apply for a long term visa, I had a chance to apply and was lucky enough to have Work Visa Lawyers help. Wendy help with all documentation and processing times. My partner and I were under some short timelines as our previous visa was about to expire. Wendy was great in helping us stay calm. She was fast getting all documentation ready for the State Nomination and Visa application.

The state nomination came through with in 5 days, thanks to Wendy urging for priority processing. Soon after we were ready to apply for the visa and with in one month the visa was granted. Wendy was great guiding us, getting the right document for the application. Communication was easy and always available when we needed her. I will be definitely recommending Work Visa Lawyer to anyone who is looking for migration advise. We are very thankful to have had Wendy helping us through what can be very stressful situations. She was great at managing stress.

If I have to apply for another visa I know i will be coming back them

My husband and I cannot thank Work Visa Lawyers enough for their assistance with our VISA 190 application. We had our initial meeting via Skype with Chris who was very helpful and explained to us the process. We then dealt with Wendy until our application was accepted. Wendy was very helpful and answered all of queries and put our minds at ease throughout the whole process. We had our application accepted within 4 months of lodging the application after receiving the state nomination. We were over the moon and did not expect to hear anything for at least a further 6 months. Thanks to Work Visa Lawyers, my husband and I can now start our new life in Adelaide in the comping months. If you are looking for a company who are professional and care about their clients, look no further.

Best wishes, Kim & Carl Burton

“Destiny is not just a matter of chance; it is also a matter of choice”. Today, I can say this with both, a sense of fulfillment and at the same time a true sense of gratitude, the credit goes to the very proficient duo (Mr. Chris Johnston and Ms. Wendy Guan) at Work Visa lawyers, who handled my application for a Permanent Residency here in Australia.

I am not aware of the actual statistics and number behind how long it actually takes for an individual to be able to attain a PR here, but after having interacted with a sizeable group, who just like me came to Australia as an international student, I am convinced that for me it happened in record time. Yet, again the credit for this goes to this talented team who know it all.

I arrived in Adelaide in June 2017 as an international student and was granted a PR (subclass 190) in Nov 2019. As magical as It sounds, it truly was a perfect match of chance and choice, wherein the chance to have Chris evaluate my overall profile and skill sets to suggest a possible pathway to PR  while I was still a student and My choice to trust in him and his team’s competencies to make it come true.

Work Visa Lawyers and all its team members have a unique ability to strategize every case and achieve successful results. Their attention to detail and quality delivery of services is very reassuring. They are equally dedicated and invested in every application as the applicant themselves.

Last but not least, a special vote of thanks to Ms. Wendy Guan for demonstrating and delivering a strong working relationship and gaining my confidence through displaying professionalism, compassion and efficiency in all communications. She maintained a high degree of precision in executing and completing all tasks and also resolving issues well within time.

Very Well Done and Best Wishes for all your future endeavors.
