Full case management and Migration Review preparation
Full case management means that we provide you with complete customised management of your case. It includes written advice, checklists, all form preparation and checking, lodgment submissions and as your agent we communicate on your behalf with The Department. We also include post lodgement care: for example with bridging visas and notifying The Department of changes such as passport or address. We are with you for the long haul.
Fees are charged on an hourly rate or as a fixed fee. By choosing a fixed fee service you know what our charges will be, keeping you in control of costs and ensuring there are no surprises along the way. Prior to signing our contract you are provided with a Fee Estimate and a Scope of Services. If an issue or question arises which is outside the Scope of Services, and which requires additional analysis or research that work would be subject to an additional charge. For example, a nomination application has been lodged and the employer then changes hands.
The policy of Opal Immigration Services is to minimise additional costs to you. Sundry expenses such as file establishment, telephone calls, emails, scanning, photocopying and postage are incorporated into our fixed price. Nor do we take upfront fees for Visa Application Charges or other costs. It is our preference that such disbursement costs are paid directly by the applicant.
Fees for full case management are quoted based on our knowledge of your individual case.
Written advice on specific issues or a visa strategy
You may need advice on a specific issue. It may be a character or health issue, cancellation matter, or a detailed visa strategy. This is usually provided as written advice and charged according to the requirements of the matter.
