Immigration Consultancy Services
What distinguishes us from the myriads of immigration outfits on the street is our technical capability to deliver outcomes desired by our clients, rather than lavish marketing campaigns hard-selling lucrative migration products to puzzled clients. All visa applications are therefore personally handled and supervised from inception up till conclusion by qualified migration agents or lawyers. Clients will have direct access to the counsel of qualified migration professionals.
Unlike other migration firms, we are highly selective of cases we represent. We will generally only accept cases which we are satisfied have a reasonable chance of success. As a result, the number of cases we work on is only a fraction of other migration firms’ and this ensures quality, efficiency and more importantly a very high success rate. For this reason, we sometimes agree to charge on success basis in appropriate cases.
We generally take all sorts of visa applications and provide migration advice in respect of Australia and Hong Kong. As of now, we do not provide migration services other than Australia and Hong Kong.

We generally charge fixed fees for immigration applications, the amount of which will depend on complexity, amount of work involved, likely time needed and availability of information to satisfy immigration requirements.
Prospective applicants should contact us for an estimate of fees, which we are happy to provide after being advised of full details of instructions. Our initial assessment and consultation over the phone or through emails are provided free of charge. However, for such discussions and assessments to be fruitful and productive, we generally require being provided beforehand essential documents relating to the instructions.
As said above, we can in appropriate cases charge fees on success/contingency basis, which means that a certain portion of the fees would be refunded to the applicants in case their applications are not successful. The amount of refund will be determined after assessing merits of the applications and subject to further discussions with the clients.
