How did we start?

The Australian Immigration Specialists network derived from our International Friends multicultural community which was initiated in 2001 in Italy and designed to bring the world together and broaden awareness of different cultures.

A passion for cultural diversity and helping people to settle in a foreign country lead to the establishment of the Australian Immigration Specialists network.

Based on our personal migration experiences, we know how the migration process can be complex and relocating to a new country can be both an exciting and stressful experience. We can assist you to choose the correct path to achieve your goals in order to make the most of your life in Australia.

We would like to emphasize that our work is based on high personal and professional standards of values and ethics and we adhere to a strict code of conduct providing only genuine and quality information for all processes in accordance with updated Australian Migration and Education laws.

Our Immigration Specialists hold a Graduate Certificate in Australian Immigration Law and Practice and are registered as Migration Law professionals with the Office of the Migration Agents Registration Authority (OMARA). Our Education Consultants are also experienced in Australian Education and registered as Qualified Education Counsellors.

How can we help you?

We can help you with the following services:

  • Immigration advice and information based on current legislation
  • Full assessment including an explanation of visa options, requirements and the migration process
  • Visa application preparation
  • Skills assessment application preparation
  • Recognition of Prior learning certification
  • Migration review tribunal hearing assistance
  • Education counseling and assistance – Australian study options, careers advice, course enrolments, change of study program or educational institution
  • IELTS exam preparation information

We look forward to discussing your situation with you and helping you settle in Australia!
