Thanks to Michelle my family and I could achieve our permanent residency without even being asked for extra documentation by the department. Michelle is one of the most honest and detail oriented immigration lawyer I have ever meet, if anybody wish a decision ready application I would highly recommend her services. Same happened with our 457 visa 2 year ago, we needed a transfer of employers and in 2 weeks everything was sorted!
I was very happy with Michelle's help. She helped us tremendously well with the visas of me and my husband. She always responded quickly to e-mails and that is very pleasant. She also helped us with other questions we had about things other than the visa. Thank you for all your help.
I would recommend Australia Visa group, they provided great assistance and support with my application for a Spouse Visa> They kept me informed at all times and their advice on the process and time frame was correct. Pleasure having them as my visa agent.
I highly recommend Michelle Firth as your visa agent. My husband and I have been clients of Michelle since 2015 and she has assisted us with all of our partner visas, the 300, the 820 and currently in the process of the 801. Needless to say she is very good at what she does and she has made the whole migrating process a lot less stressful for us. She answers all questions promptly and takes time to explain when confusion occurs. In urgent matters she has only been a phone call away. Her professional and friendly approach means that you as a client always feel that your situation is important and you are being well looked after. To anyone needing assistance with your visa, get in contact with Michelle.
I would definitely recommend Australian Visa Group to people who need consultation for migration pathways. Michelle is very professional, responsive and effective in explaining different visa options for my case. I highly appreciate wonderful service of Australian Visa Group.
Highly recommend Australian Visa Group... Michelle Firth was my agent helping me with my application in the first half of 2017. She worked with me and my perspective employer to move from a 417 to a 457 before the 457 was abolished. While the changes to 457 were being announced, it was very scary being in limbo... the process is long and worrying regardless but also not knowing if I was eligible any longer added extra stress. Michelle kept me well informed and helped me with any questions along the way, she explained everything fully and was able to help me make sense of the whole process instead of me trying to piece it together from blogs and news reports. Highly recommend Michelle, in the end the process ended up being a lot quicker than expected!
Michelle Firth was extremely professional and friendly to deal with from the start of the process all the way to the end. Anytime I had questions (and there were a lot!) she would provide me with a detailed reply to my query. She made what could have been a very stressful process to get my PR in Australia simply seamless. The fact that she delivered the good news to me via a phone call was that extra bit of service! I could not recommend her enough.😀😀
Australian Visa Group rendered great service when I had to apply for 457 visa and subsequently 186 Visa. Nothing can go wrong with them. I didn't have to worry about anything even though I am from Melbourne and they are based in Perth. I certainly recommend their service to anyone and everyone if they want hassle free visa applicatons no matter where they are.
Today is the day I, along with my wife, got permanent resident visa and all thanks to Michelle for that. I had complete faith in her judgement because the way she has managed everything is outstanding. I was in Perth, Australia but wife was overseas and that's what made things complicated as to how to go about it. But my decision to appoint Michelle to represent me turned out to be amazing. She is extremely effective & responsive and the level of professionalism she has shown throughout the process is outstanding. I would definitely recommend Australia Visa Group to everyone who are looking for migration agents and lawyers for their prospective visas.
After getting married in Australia, we decided to have a go at going through the partner visa ourselves and quickly realised how much work and stress was involved in the process. After consulting Michelle it was clear that hiring her for her services was a small price to pay for the amount of help and peace of mind she gave us. After just less than a year, I have just received my 820 partner visa and we couldnt be happier with the result as well as the service provided. We highly recommend Michelle to anyone looking to come to Australia for whatever reason. Thanks again Michelle! - Josh and Richell
We contacted Australian Visa Group in order to get a full on assist with partners visa application process. It turned out to be wonderful. The service provided to us by Michelle Firth, everything from a-b was very professionally done, such as information provided by Michelle, response time was very good and super friendly online client portal. Very much recommended!
As a customer, I would strongly recommend anyone who is looking for visa assistance as Australian Visa group has been helping me to obtain my visa and citizenship, they have provided me the most amazing service I've experienced. Especially Michelle, she is fantastic at her job. I've never once felt unclear as Michelle always provided me crystal clear answers of every questions I needed answered. Michelle always provided me easy instruction to follow plus clear communication for every step I needed to take. It has been a pleasure using their service and I'm very much appreciated Michelle's help everyday and I'm sure everyone out there would feel the same.
My experience with the company, and specifically Michelle, was excellent throughout my PR application. I was very happy with the level of communication, and never felt I was in the dark at any stage. There was never a silly question and Michelle's explanation regarding the process was always clear and concise. I would recommend, and have done several times, Michelle to anyone seeking a visa or migration advice/assistance.. Top Job..
