Default Hi new bloke & family looking at Australia

Hi
We live in the UK (Essex say no more Ha) we have recently just returned from our fantastic tour of Oz. We all loved it especially Brisbane and Perth. Any way we are looking to take the plunge but first thing i think we need a good agent especially as im just over the dreaded 40 notch and it might be a little more difficult.
Can Any body lead me in the right direction as i dont want to start off on the wrong foot and waist valuable beach time.
Many thanks.

Hi there and welcome to B.E.

I can be a point of contact should you need any help with the site in general. You can contact me here.

A list of all the moderators and helpers with their relevant countries including Australia can be found here.

Any problems, dont hesitate to PM me.

An agent can help put things forward in the right way. An agent can also help to ensure that you are applying for the right visa in the first place. However they cannot get you a visa if you don't meet the criteria, nor - contrary to popular opinion - can they speed up the process!

I reckon this forum is about 50/50 these days with using agents - but remember most agents will also do a partial service, they will check an application before submission, or just help with a skills assessment, much cheaper than the full price, if you are just unsure on a few things.

The main thing to ensure is that whoever you use is registered with MARA, and if you search the forum for MARA agents you will find several of them post on here - including (in a totally random order!)

Alan Collett, George Lombard, and Stephen Dickson.

There are also many others though, Ian Harrop is a company often recommended, and Peter Bollard is acknowledged as a specialist in medical issues.

Alistair.
