    The role of a migration agent

    Thanks LoudYorkie. Your role as a business analyst is very similar to the position I am in. 50% of my day is spent researching. This is why I'm keen to understand exactly what was done for others. In your case, did the agent do a particular thing? Review your contract offer against current Law? That's the value I'm looking for. The reason I want to check is we were quote $2000 to complete the online submission for becoming a company being able to sponsor employees. There are 11 sections, much of it is Yes/ No and a few character limited response boxes.

    RCB Refused - 187 RSMS

    I’ve always had it in mind that the RCB application would go in first and get approval before applying for an RSMS visa?

    The role of a migration agent

    Have you got any examples of harsh decisions? most of the reasons you listed for failure appear controllable and sensible. If you can’t fill out form 80, as well as business plans evidencing why, organagrams, finances etc then why should you be granted a visa at someone else’s expense. For the RSMS how much interaction do DHA have with the regional certifying board?

    Thanks for the comment Raul. When I’ve read other posts, I’ve noticed that you often comment with common sense. If the refusal rate is 50% are you saying that the ones that fail are not complying with the regulations, legislative instrument and typical requirements of the visa? I supppose this is the crux of it, if I instruct a MA does that 50% chance lower considerably? In terms of offshore, or onshore as you don’t know the circumstances of our possible application our chance of success is unknown.

    Thanks for the replies. Im just trying to figure out the value of instructing an agent when most of the information appears in the public domain, and sensible. Yes I’m sure they are looking for detailed information so a case officer can make a judgement. Which is why I asked about what in particular the agent did? If there is a trick to completing the application, that only agents know then that’s valuable. Whilst I didn’t know about the changes in law for remaining relative visa, I did see that the waiting was around 50 years as you can find that info out and put 2 and 2 together

    Hello, Keen to understand the role of an agent. What do they do? Does the involvement of a MARA agent improve credibility? How in particular did an agent help? Thanks

    Refusal rates

    Hi, i read somewhere that refusal rates for 187 were at 50%. Does anyone know why so many refusals? I presume it can’t be due to poor quality submissions, as they would have always been happening.

    It’s the 187 DE visa

    Hi, Do you need to live and work in regional Australia, or just work there? Thanks
  10. Hi, Just trying to figure out possible timelines. Once you’ve submitted your 187 DE visa, when does the DHA first look at it? Is it really only when a case officer is assigned or, do they have a quick 5 minute view to check whether it needs expediting? Cheers

    187 and bridging visas

    Hi, We are in a very similar position. Could you apply for a 482 visa, giving her potential employer access to skills much earlier. It also may derisk it all for the employer. I’m sure you’ve realized that it’s actually a 4 year commitment really. 2 year waiting and then 2 year employment offer. So the 482, if available could act as a compromise, ask that they apply for the 187 visa at the same time. I’m told it’s possible. Of course it doubles the visa cost.

    Company sponsored

    Are there limitations on when the company needs to be established? Until it's up and running, how does it demonstrate cash flow etc?
