Why use a Registered Migration Agent?
For your protection, when choosing a migration adviser you should ensure they are an Australian Registered Migration Agent. And here is why:
- Only Registered Migration Agents are bound by the Migration Agents Code of Conduct. Quite simply, the Code requires that Registered Migration Agents always act with integrity and in the best interests of you, the client. The Code is prescribed in Australia's migration legislation and protects your rights as a consumer. Agents who breach the Code may be subject to sanctions by the Government regulator. You do not have this protection unless you are dealing with a Registered Migration Agent.
- Australian migration law and policy is complex and constantly changing. By choosing a Registered Migration Agent you can be confident that the person you are dealing with has demonstrated the expertise required to assist clients with complex migration matters. Registered Migration Agents must also maintain the currency of their knowledge in migration law and policy by completing continuing professional development training every year they remain registered.
- Only persons prescribed under legislation may charge a fee for providing migration advice. An unauthorised person who provides migration advice in Australia may be subject to heavy fines or imprisonment.
