If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present.

Do they have a MARA registered agent on board? What's the initial £600 for? What visa are you after?

Hi...there is a MARA agent a owner of the company and the £600 was ‘for my case’...I’ve been advised to go for the 457 Visa, applying for the 186 Visa before leaving the UK, thanks

Maybe express your concerns via a direct communication with the registered migration agent before you write off £600?

In the meantime, do you have an employer lined up to sponsor you?

Do you have a skilled visa strategy available that means you can apply without needing an employer sponsor?

Best regards.

For 600 quid, I would expect to have a detailed visa strategy in place by now. There are a number of good Registered Migration Agents, but also a number that seem not so good.

Have you been informed on what 457 visa it will be? I assume with the 189 visa application before arrival in Australia it is the short term 457 (2 years). Also have they informed you that the 457 visa system is going to be abolished.

Have they given you expected processing times?

It might be best to shop around a bit and research several Registered Migration Agents and see who you feel most comfortable with, there are a number of good Australian based ones also.

Hi, 

I was just wondering (May seem an obvious question), are you a nurse? Also what advice have you been given by agents about migrating as a nurse to oz? 

I am looking into migrating in the future and, just looking at what processes I'll need to go through etc. 

Appreciate any advice! :)

I believe Darren Chatt is now at Visa Bureau (received an email from him from that company the other week) - unless he's at both.

Some organisations retain the services of a registered migration agent as a consultant, which is sometimes no more than window dressing to gain the confidence of prospective applicants.

Confirm with the organisation you select that your case will be managed by a registered migration agent, not by unqualified ancillary staff.
