Migration Agent....who would you recommend?

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

I hope this is the fight spot, finding it difficult to pick a Migration agent to assist us with our application. We awould not have areally easy application as my husband has heart condition. Im hoping we can get good avice on Visa etc with the health issue involved. His meds cost approx £150 per month, he works full time etc. In good fettle though but really want to get the best application in.....

We are based in Dublin, Ireland. Family of 5 + 2 doggies!

 

Thanks in advance

George Lombard is the agent most often recommended for people with health issues.  As you know, the issue is whether your husband's medical costs will exceed the threshold.

Thanks Path2aus and Marisawright, ok thats super helpful, getting the Skills assessment done asap and preparing for the IELTS in the next few weeks, want to give this my best shot. @Marisawright, yes that had been my concern. His medication coast approx £150 per month so could you remind what that threshold is and the time frame?

Thats my main worry....I can do a lot from my own end but If we are going to be reused a visa due to medication costs then Id have to know all of this from the get-go....

George Lombard will be able to tell you, before you even start applying for the visa. 

What the medication costs in the UK doesn't mean much, what matters is what it's going to cost the Australian government over the relevant timeframe.  And that's not just based on his meds, but other medical costs as well, including how his health might deteriorate during that time.

The health criteria are one of the more complex areas of migration law. Do not try to be your own expert, or rely on advice offered on a public forum. Take professional advice from one of the RMAs who posts on this forum.
