Australian based registered migration agents are the better choice as they are regulated by MARA and have to abide by Australia’s consumer protection laws. Trust accounts are also used for client monies, which are subject to audits and other regulations. Overseas agents may not be registered and may not be up to date with the in-country changes.
This depends on your circumstances and a consultation will be needed to determine what your options are. You may have various options, or none at all. Many people may also not yet qualify but can take certain actions to become eligible. Our online eligibility check and our online consultation will help you figure out what you should do.
On 14 December 2015, new criminal and civil penalties and visa cancellation provisions were introduced as part of a ‘paying for visa sponsorship ‘framework that allows for sanctions to be imposed on a person who asks for, receives, offers or provides a benefit in return for visa sponsorship or employment (that requires visa sponsorship). ‘Paying for visa sponsorship’ conduct is considered unacceptable by the Australian Government as it undermines the integrity of the skilled work programmes, which are designed to address genuine skill shortages in the Australian labour market by making employees available from outside Australia.
If your sponsor ends your employment, you have 90 days to either: find another employer to sponsor you; apply for a different visa; or leave Australia within 90 days, or before your visa expires, whichever comes first.
A Labour agreement is a formal arrangement negotiated between an employer (Australian organisation) and the Australian Government which lets an employer recruit an agreed number of skilled workers from outside Australia. The labour agreement must: identify the relevant skills shortage in the business and why these vacancies cannot be filled by Australian workers; specify the number of skilled workers needed from outside Australia; and the age, skill and English language requirements that relate to the nominated occupations. Semi-skilled occupations can be considered for nominated positions if specified in the agreement.
