The problem is that unless you use a Registered Migration Agent, you are not covered for abuse of the system. That is because RMAs are regulated by law and are governed by the fees that they can charge. If someone quoted me $75k for a visa, I'd be asking serious questions at the nearest Australian consulate. I am not an RMA but I understand from the one that I refer clients to, that a PR for a family can cost around $10k. However, moving to another country is a big step, and the financial capacity of intending migrants to be able to make the move is something that has to be addressed. I've had UK applicants ask how they go about getting benefits when they arrive in Australia. But we are off subject, the initial question was about the legality of agencies charging applicants fees - it's perfectly legal.

Hi Retief,

May I ask the position you are seeking, and if you are seeking sponsorship or PR?

Once I have this info, I will email you regarding your other points.

I'm dual traded. I'm a mechanical fitter as well as an electrician. I prefer working as an electrician. I know that I will have to gt my license to work as an electrician. So starting as a mechanical fitter will be ok. I can get my electrical lisence at a later stage. Then maun thing is to get a job and start our live in Aus. I have done my IELTS, police clearance, VETASSES. We would love PR. But if we get 457 sponsorship we will be happy. Benefits we don't worry too much about. We are healthy, bebefits is an added bonus.
