My wife and I, who had been separated due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, engaged Gold Migration Lawyers to help us be reunited after having been unsuccessful in doing so on our own. To go from feeling hopeless and having no idea how to move forward to leaving our initial consultation with Gold Migration with a firm plan and full confidence that the team understood our situation, to having a 309 Partner Visa approved just 4 months later (just 2.5 months processing time!) and being reunited with my wife in Australia just a few weeks after that goes beyond what a five-star review can convey, but needless to say we are extremely grateful for the always professional, prompt, and practical assistance of Gold Migration. Especially in cases like ours there is no price that can be put on what their hard work makes possible. Cannot recommend highly enough for working through visa and immigration solutions from the ground up.read more

I am very grateful to the lawyer Peter Peng. Although my case is very troublesome, he was very patient to help me solve it step by step. At that time, I only had 20 days to provide supplementary information from the Immigration. I found this law firm, the owner, Ramtin.  He is very confidence and professional also made me full of confidence in him. They added different viewpoints and legal opinions in the explanation letter, which successfully made the immigration officer accept my explanation.  The next day after submitting the information, the Immigration officer immediately accepted my explanation and asked me to have a medical examination.It took two months to successfully get the Partner(820) VISA, I am very grateful to them  I highly recommend this law firm , they are really pro and they can help you slove any problem.read more

frequently asked questions

Who can be a Sponsoring Business for a TSS (482) Visa?

The Sponsor must prove that they are an eligible, legally established and genuine business in Australia. Ultimately, they need to provide evidence that they are a real company.

What are the stages for that lead to a TSS (482) Visa?

There are 3 stages. In the first stage, the business needs to become a Standard Business Sponsor (SBS). In the second stage, the business nominated a migrant for a particular eligible position within the business. In the third stage, the migrant applies for the visa.

Do I need to prove that I have two years experience to be eligible for a TSS (482) Visa.

Yes, you must. You need to provide evidence that you have at least two years of full time (or equivalent) experience in the nominated occupation. Some exemptions apply.

Would I be eligible for Permanent Residency after working 3 years full time for a TSS (482) Visa?

It depends. There are two stages in the ENS (186) Visa process, as your Sponsor will need to nominate you. Furthermore, you may only be eligible if your occupation was on the Medium to Long Term Occupations List (MLTSSL).

Can I change Sponsors halfway through my TSS (482) Visa?

Yes, you can. However, the new potential employer must successfully nominate you for the same position within the business. You are not allowed to work for anyone other than a Sponsor who have nominated you and it has been approved by the DHA.

What are the most common reasons for a Partner Visa refusal?

If insufficient evidence was provided to the DHA, didn’t respond to further requests from the DHA, if the Sponsor didn’t meet the eligibility criteria, the DHA wasn’t satisfied that the Position is genuinely required within the business, etc.
