Time and time again we meet visa applicants whose lives have been destroyed by bad, poorly trained and incompetent migration agents.

Here is another story about what student visa applicants and other migrants risk when the use a migration agent rather than an Immigration Lawyer.
Has this happened to you or someone you know:
An international student has lost a legal battle for a visa because of false information given by his agent in his previous visa application, something he wasn’t even aware of.
A court has upheld the decision of the Immigration Department to refuse a student visa to an international student on the grounds that his agent had provided false information in his previous visa application.
Adnan Ashiq, a Pakistani national, originally applied for an Australian student visa in February 2012.
To a question whether he had ever served in the military or undergone military or weapons training- the ‘no’ box was ticked in response.
Mr Ashiq applied for another student visa in March 2015 and answered the same question with a yes and said that he had undergone military service or training in Pakistan as an aviation cadet at the Pakistan Air Force Academy between 2008 and 2010.
He told the Department that he was terminated from the Air Force Academy on disciplinary grounds.
In July 2015, the Immigration Department sought more information about the circumstances of Mr Ashiq’s dismissal but received no response, and his visa application was refused in March 2016 on that basis that he did not satisfy the Public Interest Criterion 4020.
