Few Questions to Ask Your Immigration Consultant Before You Submit your Visa Application for Australia!
Are you applying for an Australian visa? If your answer is affirmative then you have to get all the information you need. You must do your homework about the immigration consultant and ask the immigration consultant as many questions as possible. Asking questions will help you know the immigration consultant, how genuine they are and the services that they render at every step of the way, including when you are get to Australia.
Here is a list of a few important questions you must ask your immigration consultant before you submit your application visa. They are very important so you should not forget to ask; however, ask them any question that comes to mind or any question that bothers your mind. It is going to be for your own good.
Are you registered with the Government of Australia?
If you do not want to want to get cheated and lose your hard earned money, you must be sure you are working with a registered immigration consultant. There are a lot of fake ones out there, therefore to protect you against getting swindled, each country has a licensing system in place for all consultants who are providing immigration services to their country. Also, you can verify the claim of immigration consultants by calling local Australian embassies.
What is your Australian license registration number?
Every registered immigration consultant has a license number. Knowing they actually have this number is one more way of knowing if they can provide the services you need or if they are frauds.
What are your contact details in Australia?
To entice you into working with them, almost every immigration consultant or company will claim they can get you a job in Australia. I am sure you will agree with me that this is almost impossible if such a company is not present in Australia or they do not have associates there. Therefore, verify the job claims and their office address in Australia and ask for phone numbers.
How long have you been in this industry?
Immigration consultants that have been in the game for a long time are more experienced and can handle your case better. This does not mean new immigration consultants cannot provide the services you need; however, if I were you, I would go for the consultant that has years of experience under their belt because they will know how to sort out any kind of hitch along the way.
Can you show me your track-record?
Asking to see the visas they have handled will help you know if they represented the clients to the department of immigration. This will give you an idea of what you are to expect if you continue to work with them.
