Tears of happiness streamed down my face as I realized what a monumental victory this was.I highly recommend Gold Migration. To say they are amazing would be an understatement.

I would like to thank Peter Pang (he has left) and Walt Calis for their absolutely amazing and caring nature. Peter was an absolute gem. When I heard that he had left, I was devastated. However that feeling didn’t last long as Walt helped me with my visa application after. He has always been so prompt in responding to my emails, so caring, and friendly. Nothing was ever too difficult for him and he made sure I was well informed and updated throughout the whole process. Although my visa application was a long wait of 4 years, we made it through. He called me to deliver the good news and I can’t thank him enough. Thank you once again Walt. I appreciate you and everything you have done.read more

I was so stressed about applying for a protection visa because I heard about how difficult it was to apply for and the rejection rates, but Saemeh and her team made the process easy and seamless. All I had to do was fill out some forms and send out my documents and they took care of everything! If you are a Burmese citizen looking for a protection visa I couldn't recommend anyone better to handle your case.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.
