Frequently asked questions

Can I apply for a visa myself?
Yes, you can. But it is not easy, as many people have found out to their detriment! Many people have their visa applications rejected because they do not adopt the correct approach and fail to understand what paperwork is needed, what category of visa to apply for, when to apply or who to apply to. Immigration law is highly complex and any mistake or ambiguity in your application will result in refusal on the part of the case officer. And if you are refused this may prevent you from re-applying. Statistics have shown that by using reputable immigration consultants, you have a much better chance of securing your new life abroad.

Can Commonwealth Immigration help me?
The short answer is we don’t know yet! We need to conduct a free appraisal to see if you are eligible to meet the visa criteria. If we can, we will tell you; if we cannot help, we will tell you also. You really have nothing to lose! Feel free to complete the Online Assessment and submit it online to us.

What happens if you can help me?
If after conducting our appraisal, we determine that we can help you – then we will outline in detail how we can secure your visa or work permit. We will explain how you meet the criteria, including an outline of the process, timeframe and our fees. You can then decide whether or not you wish to proceed with Commonwealth Immigration or not - there is no obligation whatsoever.

Why do I need your Appraisal service?
Commonwealth Immigration need to conduct an in-depth assessment of your eligibility to meet the visa criteria of your chosen country or countries.With our expertise and knowledge of immigration law, we can determine your eligibility. By simply completing the Online Assessment and submitting it to us, we can then evaluate the information you have provided and decide if we can help you.

For what countries do we provide immigration services?
Our specialist immigration consultants possess expertise in relation to a wide range of international immigration law. Through our experience we find that the most popular destinations for our clients are Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. However, if there is another country, which you would like to relocate to, then please let us know - we can assess your eligibility.

Why choose Commonwealth Immigration?
There are many reasons why you should choose us to oversee your visa application. We have years of experience in the field of immigration law, we have a proven track record and we charge competitive rates. Finally, if we say we cannot help you - we mean it! Equally, if we can help you - we mean it!
