CASE STUDY: HR manager finds DIY migration applications not worth the pain
Bridget is the HR Manager, Finance Manager and general Office Manager for a small engineering company providing services to the oil and gas sector. Bridget was instructed to arrange a four year 457 temporary work visa for an Irish engineer who was in Australia on a Working Holiday visa. She was told to just follow the Immigration website instructions rather than engage a Migration Agent who would just cost a lot of money to do the same work.
After Bridget lodged all of the applications for a Business Sponsorship, Nomination of the Engineer position to be filled and the visa application for the Irishman - she suddenly got a series of letters from Immigration demanding lots of supplementary information or the applications would all be rejected. Bridget rang CCI to see if she could get some help!
CCI Migration Services asked Bridget to send them a copy of her three applications and the documents she had lodged with them, together with the Immigration request letters. As it happened Bridget hadn’t lodged any supporting documentation at all because the online system hadn’t asked for them. There were also some discrepancies in the information that had been submitted on the application forms in respect of the business training expenditure and the market salary rates being offered to the overseas worker.
As Bridget’s company was a member of CCI, they were able to access the 20 per cent discounted rates for CCI Migration Services to represent them and handle the entire application processes on their behalf. The migration team clarified some of the information Bridget had submitted, obtained company documents to substantiate their claims and submitted them to Immigration with detailed explanations as to how the company and their nominated overseas worker did in fact meet all the requirements for the 457 visa program. They even got Immigration to extend the Irishman’s six month limitation on working for the same employer while the 457 visa was being processed.
After a few more weeks of processing, Immigration approved the company’s Business Sponsorship and Nomination applications - and also granted the Irishman a four year temporary 457 work visa. Bridget’s boss told her not to risk cutting costs on such important issues in future – it was always best to engage professional assistance in the first place than suffer the consequences later on!
Bridget just sighed and shook her head…
