Tips: Finding the Best Immigration Firm

Everyone seeks the best migration assistance as they can, and they resort to search on Google for terms, such as:

  • Visa lawyers Melbourne
  • Immigration lawyers Melbourne
  • Top migration lawyers Melbourne
  • Visa lawyers Sydney
  • Immigration lawyers Sydney
  • Top migration lawyers Sydney
  • Visa lawyers Brisbane
  • Immigration lawyers Brisbane
  • Top migration lawyers Brisbane
  • Visa lawyers Perth
  • Immigration lawyers Perth
  • Top migration lawyers Perth
  • Visa lawyers Adelaide
  • Immigration lawyers Adelaide
  • Top migration lawyers Adelaide
  • Visa lawyers Darwin
  • Immigration lawyers Darwin
  • Top migration lawyers Darwin

It is important to understand that simply being in the top results for these searches does not necessarily guarantee the quality of professional services being rendered. Therefore, you would have to do deeper research.

We strongly advise that you consider the professional backgrounds of the lawyers and agents. If you are not careful, you may end up engaging a firm that delegates your application to a crew of paralegals and admin assistants, or even “virtual assistants” in the Philippines or India, rendering all your efforts and aspirations useless.

Our Principal Lawyer, James Bae, has represented the Australian Governments as a legal adviser in various adjudicating channels, such as the Administrative Appeals Tribunal and the Federal Court. Having worked in the role, he has gained insights on the deliberations within the Government which is now helping him and his team better prepare for clients of Visa Plan. In addition, his accounting degree and business experience enable Visa Plan to provide migration services of higher quality, especially in Australian business migration.  

Above all, you should understand that good advice can be expensive but poor advice can be more costly in the long run. If you are shopping around for cheaper quotes, you may realise that each quote differs significantly and in some cases, by thousands of dollars. Think about why, and remember that there is no point in choosing a cheap migration agency over the top immigration lawyers, if you have to engage the top migration lawyers later to fix the issues that have been wronged by the cheap visa agency. As a matter of fact, the quality of an immigration lawyer in Australia is not always commensurate with their fees.

Immigration History of Australia

After World War II, the Australian Government was committed to boosting the nation’s population under the slogan – “Populate or Perish”. Policies were devised and implemented with the agendas of stimulating post-war economic development and defending the country in the event of another war. Despite the Government’s original intention for the 1% annual growth via immigration, the number of immigrants had grown exponentially. As a result, 30% of Australia’s resident population was born overseas, making it one of the world’s most multicultural nations.

Australia’s immigration program has been governed by the Migration Act of 1958 which established the Australian visa system with the long title – “An Act relating to the entry into, and presence in Australia of aliens, and the departure or deportation from Australia of aliens and certain other persons.” This Act replaced the Immigration Restriction Act 1901 which had formed the basis of the archaic ‘White Australia policy’ and many other discriminatory practices. The Migration Act 1958 Act has been amended numerous times over the past 60 years, with each presiding Government seeking to impose its own migration policies.

This has resulted in a unique mixture of drafting styles and policy objectives, producing the current Australian immigration landscape we see today. As long as Australia remains a popular destination for migrants from around the world, the Department, Tribunal and Courts will be called upon to interpret the various provisions in the realm of Australian immigration law. It is crucial that your Australian migration lawyers and immigration consultants understand the past and current laws that are relevant to your prospective visa application.
