Migration from Western European countries to Australia is essentially a life-style driven decision. Former clients of Australian Consultancy Ltd have identified many reasons for migrating to Australia. These include:
One of the most difficult aspects of migrating to Australia is to decide which visa application is most appropriate to your needs and/or circumstances. The current Migration Regulations make provision for some 15 classes of offshore/onshore classes of migration and some 30 classes of temporary residency visas.
Australian Consultancy offers comprehensive immigration assistance to clients seeking permanent or temporary entry to Australia. Registered Migration Agents at Australian Consultancy can assist business and private clients to assess their visa options and prepare and lodge the most appropriate visa application with the Australian Immigration authorities.
Australian Consultancy Ltd has offices based in Walchwil, Switzerland and Brisbane, QLD, Australia.
Susan Sandhoff Badertscher (Registered Migration Agent Number 9791613) is a principal of Australian Consultancy, and was formerly engaged as Immigration Office Manager of the Australian Consulate Berne, Switzerland. Susan is Australian educated and was admitted as a Solicitor of the Supreme Court of Queensland, Australia in 1993.
The principal's legal training in Australia and first hand experience as both an immigration officer and registered migration agent stands Australian Consultancy in good stead to provide an excellent immigration advisory service. Susan speaks German and English.
Registered Migration Agents at Australian Consultancy Ltd can assist private or corporate clients.
Under Australian law, a person providing immigration assistance must be registered with the Migration Agents Registration Authority (MARA).
Because of the complexity of Australia's Migration laws and regulations, Australian Consultancy Ltd recommends that all potential migrants to Australia register for our Pre Assessment Service.
Our Pre Assessment Service will assist you to identify your visa options and likelihood of success before investing your time, energy and money into preparing and lodging your visa application with the Australian Immigration authorities.
For a fee, a registered migration agent will consider your circumstances and provide their professional opinion of whether you meet current visa criteria.
Please download the Pre-Assessment Questionnaire and send to either our Swiss or Australian Office.
Australian Consultancy registered migration agents travel frequently between Switzerland and Australia. The pre-assessment interview will occur either by telephone or in person at our Swiss or Australian offices.
At the pre-assessment interview, the visa criteria will be explained to you by a registered migration agent. Your agent will consider your particular circumstances (professional qualifications and experience, age, English proficiency, Australian partner or relatives, Australian employers, business and/or investment experience, distinguished talents) and advise whether you meet current visa criteria.
Written offer to prepare your visa application
If a realistic visa option is identified, Australian Consultancy will make an offer in writing to prepare your visa application for submission to the Australian Immigration authorities. This offer will stipulate the consultancy fee payable to Australian Consultancy and identify additional costs and disbursements, including Departmental fees and charges.
Australian Consultancy Ltd will prepare your visa application for submission to the relevant Australian skills assessment authority (if applicable) and the Australian Immigration authorities.
Registered migration agents at Australian Consultancy are familiar with all Australian Immigration processing requirements. Visa applications prepared by Australian Consultancy are complete and fully supported by the required documentary evidence, which is vital to ensure smooth processing of your application in the minimum time possible.
English translations of your supporting documents can be arranged (at your cost) by NAATI (National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters) accredited translators in Australia. Generally, costs of English translations in Australia are lower than in Europe.
Recent changes to Australia's Migration Regulations require all Skilled Migration applications to be lodged at the Adelaide Skilled Processing Centre, Adelaide, South Australia. It is for this reason, that Australian Consultancy has established an office in Australia. Having an office in Australia will greatly facilitate communications with the Adelaide Skilled Processing Centre.
