Sophia has helped me with a number of visas during my 9 year stay in Australia. I started off with Work Holiday visa, but I needed organising further visas so I could study and live in Australia.
Sophia knew all the ‘ins and outs’ of the immigration rules and regulations, she was incredibly helpful, and generous with her time. I always received quick responses to my many questions!
The process can be a bit overwhelming, so I was grateful that Sophia assisted in organising my student visa then my partner visa now I am a permanent resident. Sophia always made me feel confident during this journey and I am very happy to live in this amazing country. You made it happen!!! Thanks again.
I met Sophia 5 years ago when I came to Australia as a student. She was really helpful through the whole process of applying for my permanent residency. I have recently lodged for my Australian citizenship. At first it was all very overwhelming, but with Sophia’s help any time I had a question, I knew she was only a call or email away and she would answer and nothing was too much trouble.
Sophia is very kind and very professional. Sophia has made the process very easy so I didn’t have to worry about anything!
I had a series of unexpected problems during the processing of my permanent residency visa. Firstly, getting my professional registration where Sophia approached the registration board and I eventually received registration. Due to the delay in the registration Sophia had to find a pathway for me to stay in Australia, she did this with days to spare! After this I faced another hurdle with trying to get my children here. Sophia acted quickly and fixed this problem. Now my children and I are in Australia. We have lodged for our Australian citizenship. Sophia did a wonderful job she helped me reach my destiny!
My friend recommended Sophia to me as I had difficulty in getting my baby daughter a temporary visa to travel to Australia. She assured me that I would receive the visa within 4 weeks but the visa was granted in 2 weeks! Sophia has helped me through the permanent visa process. It has taken 2 years to get my PR due to the processing however, Sophia has helped with the many complicated correspondence received by the immigration department. She always provided my family & I support and went beyond the services that we had signed up. I do not hesitate to recommend Michael Migration Agents to anyone who needs advice or help with immigration to Australia.
