Family Visa

happy family

Family visa application fees have become more and more expensive and Immigration regulations have become much stricter. There have been many family visa applications refused simply because they have not provided sufficient evidence of relationships or have provided bogus documents etc. Our staff will ensure you have ALL documentation prior to lodgment to ensure the application is processed as quickly and smoothly as possible.

AMO migration agents have extensive experience in all family visa categories with an enviable success rate. AMO assist over 200 clients each year with family visa applications.

There are a wide variety of visas in the family visa categories.

Some family visas can be applied for by a visa applicant who is “onshore” (i.e. IN Australia) and all family visas can be applied for “Offshore” (i.e. while visa applicant is overseas).
