Hi guys,

I dont have good news to share about my PR186 application.

I applied in June 2018 and my company (Adriano Zumbo) came into liquidation Dec 2018. Hence, as of June 2019, the company and I have decided to withdraw both nomination and application.  I have thus lost almost 10k. (6k of legal fees & 3k+on application) This forum has been great help to me. It was nice knowing there are many out there going through the same thing as me because it is kind of hard for close friends and family to understand what PR mean to us. Below are some advices I would like to give to anyone who needs it because I wished I took the same precautions before applying.

I paid 6k of legal fees to my migration agent upon lodgement. And trusted him to have accessed the financial documents given to him by the company. He has been the company lawyer for many years. I have not seen the documents at all. But within half a year, my company (Adriano Zumbo) came into liquidation. It was truly devastating for all of us. But beyond that, I believe there was a mistake in judgements. Financial documents prepared by my company was probably not up to date at all. Otherwise, why would a company come into liquidation within half a year? For those who observe shaky financial situations in your respective companies, please take matters into your own hand! No one cares about your application more than you do really. Also, I do not know how it works for migration agent, but in retrospect, paying 6k without any promised result was a big mistake. 

On 1st July, after waiting for more than a year, I emailed nse.pse@homeaffairs.gov.au requesting updates on my application. My lawyer received updates on the nomination the next day. This could be a coincidence but just give it a try guys. There's nothing to lose. I was nice and polite in the email.

Good luck guys. I wish you guys all the best in your applications.

Firstly, you should never use a lawyer- they are not specialists in migration. You need a migration agent who is MARA registered, this gives you, the consumer, some protection if errors are made. 

Secondly, you generally shouldn’t use a migration agent/lawyer who works for the company sponsoring you. They will only look out for the company’s best interests, not yours. You should always use your own agent to represent your own interests.

Thirdly, research the cost. In this day and age it’s not difficult to get multiple quotes for comparison from a number of migration agents. 6k sounds like a lot to me. 

Fourthly, your migration agent should be able to guide you on the success of your application based on the company finances, having detailed knowledge on what is required for sponsorship and migration purposes. You shouldn’t just apply blindly and hope for the best. A decent migration agent will tell you if it’s not a viable prospect not just take your money and apply anyway.

There are far too many people on this forum with dodgy agents, and subsequent nomination refusals, visa refusals and appeals. 


Due to escalating bills and budgetary cuts in the NHS, unfortunately, the light at the end of the tunnel has had to be switched off.
