Has anybody got any advice/recommendations when using migration agents? I have already struck up a relationship with Overseas Emigration and am confident to sign to them. I just wondered what other people were up to.
Sorry, I posted thais in the wrong place. I'll move it...
Why not do it yourself? if your good at paperwork and have a straightforward application, then it should be fine. Nothing goes through any faster with agents, but they are there to give advice. Be careful who you use, poms in oz is a good place to find info. Good luck
We did it ourselves, 176 visa granted, moving to france then to oz in six weeks, Jen x

Leaving aside the questionable (and wrong) assumptions about what an agent does, this thread is nearly 4 years old. To be closed perhaps ...?
Whats your motivation for wanting it closed I wonder????
That the OP is nearly 4 years old.
As I'm sure you know, I am happy to enter into a dialogue about the merit of using an agent ... those who assert that enquirers should not use a professional advisor when they know nothing about the circumstances of an enquirer are expressing a view based on incomplete knowledge.
Some have the abilities and temperament to manage the process without formal assistance. But not all do - and to simply say "don't waste your money on an agent" is ridiculous.
Actually, seeing the thread is four years old, I would have thought that the more considered response would have been for the moderator to have fired off a quick email to the OP to see what happened.
Did he use a RMA? Did he DYI? Did he even change his mind about migrating?
The responses to those questions from the OP would be far more illuminating than merely providing a forum for gratuitous insults along the lines of:
