  • If you are involved with migration fraud in any way your ability to apply to travel will be affected.
  • Ensure that all of the documentation that you provide with your application is genuine.
  • You are strongly advised not to listen to people who tell you that they can ‘arrange’ a visa for a sum of money.
  • There are known scams operating over the Internet and in newspapers offering employment or student Visa. These are commonly offered by businesses claiming to be ‘migration agents’. When dealing with any agent or business offering such services please ensure that you verify any offers of employment or study.
  • You should also verify that the agent is applying lawfully to the Government BEFOREyou make any payments or arrangements.
  • Please ensure that you obtain an official receipt for any money you pay for a visa or visa-related services.
