Hi mesie,

Moving to another country usually involves a lot of paperwork. It surely helps getting an agent to shift trough a that mumbo jumbo and get a visa stamped that will help you enter. So for that pain they will charge you. What you need to look out for is if the agent is registered and legal. This is simple by checking the agents accreditation, license and asking around. I am from Dubai and our agent kept sending emailers and general adverts (during the time we were using them) in how an authentic agent has to be MARA recognized. Here that seems to be a concrete recognition. We have been successful in getting an entry into Australia. Please google Aries International migration consultants. I cannot post a link as j am a new member and only after five posts can I do so.

Good luck.

Australian government (embassy included) do not provide advice. This is against separation of duties and integrity principles of the government.

The best place to start is www.immi.gov.au

People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.

We are told to remember the idea, not the man. Because a man can fail. He can be killed and forgotten. But four hundred years later an idea can still change the world.

Go and Get directly, otherwise you may charged very high by the agency. It is very easy to get Visa for a specified genuine reason. Always book your accommodation while going Australia because it is the most visiting place for many travelers and tourists. Also get some necessary stuff with you.

Happy Journey!!

How long will you be traveling in Australia for? If it is 90 days or less it is likely very similar to Americans getting a visa. Mine took literally seconds to obtain. A 6 or a 12 month visa takes a little bit longer and if you're young enough you can get a working holiday visa for up to a year with the ability to work if your funds get low.

Have fun!!!
