About Our Services

Our services include:  

1. Visa Consultation services to assess our customer’s individual circumstances and advise on visa eligibility. The standard consultation duration is up to 1 hour, and it is done through phone, skype or email depending on the customer’s preference.

2. Online Visa Application services to facilitate the online visa processing of foreign nationals who wish to visit Australia for different purposes. We assist users to apply for their visa with the Australian Government and, once a decision is made on their application, we communicate the outcome to the users. Our Visa Application services include reviewing all of the information provided, translating information where necessary, filling out the visa application forms on your behalf, checking the entire application for accuracy, completeness, spelling and grammar, review the application before lodgement and ultimately lodging the application. Where necessary, we may contact you via email or phone to request additional information or documents (such as a copy of passport bio-data page and police checks) in order to process the request. Prior to making payment for the visa, you will have an opportunity to review all the details you have provided on your screen and make changes if necessary. If you have made an error, it is important that you correct it before proceeding. Once you have confirmed the details, you will be prompted to enter your credit card details for our service charge.

Exemption from Responsibility of Service Outcome

The Australian Government’s authority issuing the visa documents will make the decision in relation to your application. As already pointed out, additional documentation may be required for the processing of the visas and delay in providing such documents may result in a visa refusal.

The Australian Government may refuse any visa application with or without giving a reason. Our company does not issue visas or travel documents and, as a result, we cannot guarantee that Australian Government will issue the visa. As a result, we recommend you allow plenty of time to lodge your visa application before your trip, as well as postponing purchasing tickets or their equivalents until the visa is obtained. Our company takes no responsibility for costs related to these under any circumstances.

The work of our company, and for which every effort will be made in every respect, is the processing of applications ordered by the customer. At no time will our company be liable for possible delays, justified or otherwise, by the government authorities in their acceptance of the application. Neither will it be responsible for possible extra costs which may arise from managing the visa application. Our company will carry out the necessary procedures to obtain your visa or other documentation, always completed under the instructions given by you on the questionnaires which are filled in by you and submitted with the application.

The company will process the application using the information provided by you and is not responsible for visa refusals, delays or any other issue arising from the provision of incorrect, false or incomplete information by you. After we send you your visa grant document, we strongly encourage you to double-check that all the information on the document is correct, and to let us know immediately if there is any incorrect information.

Also, you must ensure that your passport is valid for at least 6 months from the start of your trip.

We will send you your Visa grant document by email. We decline any responsibility in case you fail to receive any email correspondence from us, including but not limited to your Visa grant documents, as a result of spam filters, incorrect spelling of your email address, internet connection issues or any other reason.

Please note that the provision of bogus, false or misleading information or documents, including documents of identity, either voluntarily or by mistake, is a criminal offence and can result in a visa application being refused, and any visas granted on the basis of those documents or information being cancelled.

The responsibility to provide true and accurate information in a timely manner rest solely on the visa applicant. We decline any responsibility for visa processing delays or visa refusals resulting from the provision of incorrect, bogus, false or misleading information or documents or from the non-provision of required documents or information.
