3 Things to Look for in Your Migration Agent

Choosing your migration agent is as important as your decision to go to Australia. Whether you intend to study, get a job or simply have a good time, you need the services of an expert to help you in processing your request with the Australian Government.

You see, having the funds and all the necessary documentation does not guarantee your being granted a visa to travel to Australia. It is how your requirements are presented to the Australian Embassy case officer that will make all the difference. With all the very similar paperwork that get to these officers’ desks, how do you convince him or her that you do deserve to be granted a visa?

This is where the services of a migration agent comes in. With the wealth of experience under the agent’s belt, he or she would know exactly how to present your case so that favourable action is taken. That’s how important a migration agent is to your travel plans.

However, your choice of a migration agent should withstand a due diligence test. Google can help you, but here are some things you should look for:

  1. MARA Registration

MARA or the Migration Agents Registration Authority, as the name implies is responsible for accreditation. And mind you, the requirements are stringent. These include a Graduate Certificate in Australian Migration Law and Practice and a clean bill of health from the National Police, so to speak, among others. A search on the MARA website will give you the status of your migration agent.

  1. Testimonials

Go through your migration agent’s website and find out if they have happy clients. This is one sure gauge of their success rate.

  1. Empathy

Only when he or she has a good understanding of your case can your migration agent successfully help you present your case to the case officer for positive results. This can only result from genuine care from your migration agent, who will see you as a person with a unique situation and not just a customer.

Move Closer to Your Dreams with the Right Culinary Internship

Culinary arts is a niche that can well be conquered by Filipinos because of their passion for food – food dominates every life event in a Filipino setting. As diverse is the geography of the Philippines, so are the methods of cooking. Dishes normally reflect resources and methods indigenous to the region. Hence, one dish, though known by the same name, will have different flavours in the various regions of the country.

It is in this background from which an aspiring Filipino chef comes from. It is also no wonder why they aspire to be so. Armed with the requisites to become a great chef – passion for food fortified by patience and perseverance, Filipinos can become great masters of culinary arts.

However, becoming a chef takes more than being passionate, let alone becoming great. One needs to learn the techniques and tools of the trade, from food preparation to presentation. A degree in culinary arts will provide you with the basic culinary arts skills, even some exposure in the internship program built into the course but for mastery you will need much more than that.
