It was down to the wire and my visa was due to expire the same day my paper work was to be lodged on, otherwise my status in the country would be illegal. My current employer was registered as a sponsor but never had lodged the paper work before. It was then that I enlisted the help of Migration Consultants Australia. It was on that same day that my paper work (that could have been lodged over the coming weeks) was certified and my application was lodged within six hours. My visa was approved and I am still with that employer today. There is no doubt in my mind that if I did not seek the help of MCA I would not be in Australia starting my new life.
