How We Can Help

Don’t take risks with your Australian visa application. To avoid mistakes you need an experienced migration lawyer on your side.

We will take charge of your matter and communicate with you in plain English so there is no confusion and you have a clear understanding of what is required throughout the visa process.

We will guide you through each stage of the visa process including obtaining a detailed understanding of your personal circumstances, completing an assessment on your eligibility and preparing, reviewing and submitting all necessary applications.

We can also arrange to have any documentation translated into English by certified National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters (“NAATI”), assist with skills assessment requirements and arrange certification of documents.

Our work does not end once your visa application has submitted. We continue to monitor the progress of your application with the Department of Home Affairs and keep you up-to-date with any developments.

The Importance of Accurate Information

Here at Quinn & Scattini we follow all the required procedures when it comes to the visa applications so your application has the best chance of success. However, please keep in mind, no migration agent can guarantee that a visa application will be approved, nor can we influence the outcome or expedite processing of your visa application.

We submit all documentation based on the information you provide. It is your responsibility to ensure all information you provide to us is accurate. If you provide falsified documentation or make claims that are untrue and inaccurate your visa application will be rejected and you will be banned from making a further visa application for a specified time period.

What If My Visa Application Is Refused?

A visa refusal does not mean that is the end of the road. You are entitled to submit another visa application for consideration but you will be required to pay the application fee again. To avoid making the slightest mistake, for example, applying for the wrong type of visa, we strongly recommended you engage the services of an experienced migration lawyer.

Quinn & Scattini’s experienced migration lawyers will ensure the application process is hassle-free and stress-free for you and ensure your application has every chance of being accepted.
