Recommendations for visa lawyer/agent

Hi guys,

I'm new here so appreciate a little help.

I'm about to complete my PhD in engineering and have been offered a position at a company. They are willing to sponsor me for visa 457 (this, apparently is the quickest way to get work permit). I'd like to get this done as quickly as posssible. So a few questions here:
1) Do you have any recommendations for good lawyers/agents in Melbourne? I'd like to meet them face to face and hoping to get some recommendations from applicants not just lawyers and agents.
2) Do I need to do an IELTS test?
3) Do I need to do a police check? I think this is required but just wanted to make sure.

Thanks guys.

The 457 is relatively straightforward you'll be able to see from the Immi online info and you may find the employer is going to engage an agent for their side of the visa.
If so, a little arm twisting may get them adding in your side at minimal cost.
Have a look at the online eligibility section and all info is there.

Thanks Wanderer. I'm afraid the employer won't be engaging a lawyer/agent. There are a few things that I'm not sure of, hence my inclination to hire someone. One is whether I need to do an IELTS test and second whether I need to do police checks.

Regards.

Hopefully your employer will be competent enough and as for yourself a check of the Immi visa info will go a long way to answering your questions.
