I engaged Gold Migration, because I had left things a little too late and there were some factors that were too complicated and too confusing and too high risk for me to do on my own.My first meeting with them was by video. I was looking at a set up with lined up desks much like you see in a court room drama. There were 3 people in the room. They asked me to describe my circumstances and they answered my questions. They were forthright and pulled no punches, they told me the risks and the issues I would have to deal with. Then they conferred together and then gave me a price. It wasn’t the most expensive I had been quoted, nor the cheapest, but what impressed me about them was the machine like efficiency they dealt with the problem from the beginning. There are NO surprises from this firm. They lay out all the costs at the time of engagement, they tell you the steps they will be taking and their approach.Remember this is Immigration you’re dealing with, even expert lawyers have no control over such a department, timescale is not in the control of you or your lawyers.For the first month it was a flurry of activity for me. They sent me a cloud based drive to upload all my documents and evidence to. They reviewed it and made suggestions. All of the statements they asked me to write came with examples and best way to write them. Then they told me they had everything they needed and to leave it with them. On reflection I realised I had witnessed a highly experienced team in action. They asked for and got what they needed, it was explained and documented and organised. They have a very efficient set of procedures they follow and they make sure all the boxes are ticked before they submit.You can’t fault this level of experience and practical application, you basically pay them and go along for the ride. Over the months as immigration dealt with the case they came back to me a few times and asked for more information. I know they wrote reports and fielded questions from immigration but all I got was a comment that everything was tracking as planned.The most interesting part for me to see was the obvious pleasure and satisfaction they enjoyed when they called me to tell me we finally had the PR visa. They took it personally and that meant a lot to me.Are they expensive ? Well that depends, how much is having your family members live with you in Australia worth to you ? They are not the cheapest , they are not the most expensive, but I am confident that they are the best!If you are worried about getting a loved one or a valued worker a visa, or you are having issues with your visa, you should not hesitate to go with the gold standard. Go with Gold Immigration and sleep better at night knowing your visa issue is in good hands.read more

Entrusting Gold Migration Lawyers was the best decision I ever made for my parents to obtain a safe and secure future here in Australia. A life changing decision for them.Our case manager was Saemeh Ghasemi who was instrumental in ensuring their Protection Visa was thoroughly detailed and solid.

My partner and I had walked into Gold Migration for the first time in May of 2023. I was anxious at I knew by the time we would have to lodge our partner visa we would not have lived together for 12 months. Walt had given us the reassurance that all would be okay, I instantly felt that sigh of relief through the professional and welcoming service that Walt and his team had provided. We then began our journey with Gold Migration Lawyers, the whole time Walt had been there to support us through every enquiry and every piece of evidence. We eventually submitted our visa in October with every bit of confidence of a positive outcome. In February we got out 820 grant, the moment Walt had told me that the visa had been granted I began to cry of happiness. Thank you Walt! Thank you Gold migration lawyers, you have allowed myself and my partner to be in Australia together.read more

Offshore Partner Visa for Thai People in Australia – frequently asked questions

In what location should your Thai girlfriend be to be able to apply for a Partner (subclass 309) Visa?

Your Thai girlfriend must be in Thailand (outside Australia) at the time of application. If your Thai girlfriend is in Australia, she should consider an onshore partner visa (subclass 820).

Do you as a Sponsor to your Thai girlfriend need to be offshore as well when you apply for the 309 visa?

No, you, the Sponsor, can be either in Australia, in Thailand or anywhere in the world.

Can your Thai girlfriend be in Australia for the decision?

No, she should be in Thailand when the Department of Home Affairs (DHA) makes a decision on your Partner (subclass 309) visa application. Some limited exemptions apply.

What if you are not married to your Thai girlfriend and you haven’t lived together for 12 months?

If this is the case, you should consider a Prospective Marriage (subclass 300) visa. However, you will need to marry your Thai girlfriend within 9 months of being granted subclass 300 visa if you want to get a permanent partner visa.

What is the pathway to your Thai girlfriend Permanent Residency with this visa?

In some cases, the Department of Home Affairs (DHA) may approve the Permanent Residency stage at the same time as the subclass 309 visa. If the DHA does not, you will be able to provide further information for the Permanent Partner (subclass 100) visa exactly 2 years after your original Partner Visa lodgement by your Thai girlfriend, as long as her Partner Visa 309 has been granted.

Can your Thai girlfriend travel to Australia whilst she is awaiting a decision on a Partner (subclass 309) visa?

Yes, she can travel to Australia. However, your Thai girlfriend must be offshore when the DHA makes a decision on her application. Some exemptions apply.
