Book a consultation

Initial Consultation

The initial consultation is an opportunity for you to discuss your current situation in detail with our Registered Migration Agent. During the consultation, our Registered Migration Agent will outline the immigration options available to you, explain the eligibility criteria, critical timelines and the relevant costs. At the conclusion of the consultation, our Registered Migration Agent will send you an email containing information about the different visas and options discussed in the meeting.

Consultations can be held face to face at our Little Collins Street office or via Skype or telephone. Our fee for an initial consultation is $170 (plus GST) and is generally 45 minutes long. If you wish to book a consultation please call us on 1300 98 70 71.
