Difference between agents & lawyers

Only RMAs are permitted to provide legal immigration aid in Australia. An immigration lawyer may or may not be an RMA.

It is important to understand that certain types of immigration aid cannot be provided by immigration lawyers who are not RMAs.

Immigration aid entails assisting with visa applications and other visa-related issues, such as:

  • Advising a visa applicant/sponsor regarding a visa/sponsorship application
  • Assisting in preparation of a visa/ nomination/ sponsorship application.
