Is there anything I need to know to get my visa application done?

Answer provided by Migration Agent

Keep in mind the following to ensure a smooth and secure experience.

1) Know the Migration Agent
See the Migration Agent’s review and feedback in the Migration Agent and Immigration Lawyer Directory to understand who you are going to work with. Also, see if the Agent has a verified payment method with Pay.Safe.

2) Make clear what you want from your Migration Agent
Ask your Migration Agent to confirm your agreement with Pay.Safe before starting the work. Agreements help define the terms of engagement, set expectations and define milestone payments.

3) Protect your payments with Pay.Safe
Ensure you protect your payments with Pay.Safe. Your safety is our priority.
Pay.Safe is free for you and your Agent.
