How Does it Work

Request a Consultation

If you would like to proceed with a visa application through CIES, the first step is to request for a consultation via phone/email.

You will then meet with an experienced immigration advisor who will review your individual circumstances and guide you through the various visa options available to you.

Most of our initial consultations are done face-to-face, but you can also request a phone or skype consultation if you prefer. A nominal fee of $150 applies for the Profile Assessment

Visa Process

The next step to success on your migration journey is to appoint Collins Immigration and Education Services as your Migration Agent.

You will be allocated a dedicated case manager who will be your contact point at CIES and manage the application process throughout.

Our full visa application service includes the following:

  • Providing a realistic Profile Assessment and opportunity available
  • Managing the Case File and the various stages of the application to ensure that critical deadlines are met in a timely manner
  • Provide guidance on required documentation
  • Certification of all copies of documents to be submitted with the application
  • Where necessary, advice on required employer references
  • Preparation of necessary forms for the application
  • Assistance with skills assessment
  • Arranging sponsorship/nomination by State or Territory Government where appropriate
  • Lodgement of visa application with the appropriate Department of Home Affairs office
  • Maintaining correspondence with Immigration until a decision is made on your case
  • Giving you timely updates on the progress of your case during processing

We operate on a fixed fee basis - there are no "hidden charges".

During your initial consultation, you will receive a quote for CIES’s professional fees to assist with your visa application.

The quote is based on the information you provide. Service out of the scope of the agreement namely change of circumstances or health/character concerns, or natural justice responses will entail additional fees.
