Australia is one of the most sought-after countries to migrate overseas. As per the Australian Bureau of Statistics [ABS], in 2019, there were over 7.5 million people in Australia that had been born overseas.
According to ABS’s Top 10 countries of birth for overseas-born Australians on June 30, 2019, as many as 2.6% were those that were born in India and later migrated to Australia. India made it to the third spot on the list.
Further, in the year leading to June 30, 2019, around 538,000 individuals arrived to live in Australia. Of these migrant arrivals, 64% were temporary visa holders comprising 32% international students.
With the ever-increasing number of people arriving in Australia, there has been a corresponding increase in individuals seeking visa agents.
Often, there have been instances of unsuspecting people being scammed by unregistered visa agents. Many such Australia visa consultants helping arrange Australian visas – such as student visas [subclass 500] – make false financial documents, at times even going to the extent of forging the visa applicant’s signature on documents.
Typically, unregistered Australia visa agents keep the visa applicants in the dark, neither familiarizing them with the visa process nor providing status updates as the scenario develops. Generally, such unregistered visa agents also don’t even give proper feedback if additional documents are required.
Seeking professional assistance from such unregistered Australia visa agents can lead to serious as well as far-reaching consequences. In addition to the visa being rejected, the visa applicant might even be denied entry into Australia in the future as well. In such circumstances, students might lose the opportunity to study abroad in Australia.
Never take chances with visa and immigration. Always seek professional advice from someone that has your best interests in mind. Someone that you can trust.
