Hi ,

i am software professional and
I want to apply for visa class 175. i checked all the criteria for this visa category. i am qualified for this Category. i am planning to apply for it. i need some sggestion on following options

1)I found migration agent(Live in AUstralia) who will process my VISA upto Application form completion and Validation Theywill charge me AU$699.
2)second option , they will process my VISA on my behalf, upto last stage and they will charge AU$3699/- as sefee.rvice

Amount AU$3699/- bit high for me, if i will go with option one , Then how difficult it will be to VISA application submission and checking the status of it, Can i handle it my self?should i go for option one option two?
or
my budget is AU$2000-2500 , can anyone suggest me any good MIA registered who can file my VISA on this amount.

Your reply will be highly appreciated.

I would suggest in first instance you thoroughly read all the 175 visa data, each section, all links, print off multiple checklists and application forms and work your way through completing an application dummie run for there is nothing really difficult about applications, more just getting all the right information and having copies certified.

Someone working in a professional capacity may be even better capable than a MA.

Also read our second sticky for you may be better off to see if you can be eligible for state nomination re a 176 visa - higher processibg priority - again read all immi and states info if interested.

Visa 175 application

Hi there

I printed out all the forms and got together all the paper work, then applied on-line. To my surprise the on-line application is MUCH simpler than the paper version - the character reference form is very simple as you don't need to provide the lists of countries you have visited in the last 10 years etc.

I was a bit nervous due to all the stuff you get from agents about how complex it is, but for us it was very simple. As long as you are 1) prepared and have read all the guidance notes and websites, 2) have a friendly solicitor who will certify your documents, 3) have access to a colour scanner, and 4) have lots of patience once you have applied, you will probably be fine.

We had some lost passport data so we were really upfront and provided what we had and then supplemented the application with emails explaining certain entries. All was accepted and we got our visa in Dec 08.

Check lists are on the immi site under "applying for this visa" section for relevant visa - time for you to do some more reading.
