Our expert migration professionals streamline the process to make business migration predictable.
Holding Redlich’s Migration Law team specialise in all aspects of immigration law with particular focus on business, employer, and skilled migration.
Australia’s migration program is complex and constantly changing and with so many different visa options to choose from, client’s often struggle to understand what visa is best for them.
We work with clients both in Australia and overseas to provide strategic, expert and practical advice in all aspects of visa application preparation, risk management, and compliance and to make the process easy to understand.
Employer sponsored visas allow businesses to sponsor overseas workers to fill genuine skilled vacancies. We assist:
We assist with both temporary and permanent employer sponsored visas.
The Business Innovation and Investor Program is specifically designed to attract successful overseas business people and investors to Australia. Applications are a two stage process with applicants being granted a provisional visa in the first instance and then being expected to undertake certain requirements before applying for permanent residence. We assist:
The Global Talent Visa program was introduced to attract highly talented individuals, with entrepreneurial ideas and cutting-edge skills within the following target sectors:
It is expected these individuals will contribute to the Australian economy, drive innovation and create employment opportunities for Australians.
This is an invitation only program which requires interested candidates to submit an Expression of Interest for the program and then be invited to apply. We assist clients through the entire process from preparing the Expression of Interest through visa grant.
Sometimes sponsorship, nomination or visa applications are refused. We assist clients by assessing their prospects of successfully reviewing the decision and advising on what review or appeal options are available. We also assist with the lodgement and management of that process.
In some circumstances it may be appropriate to make an application requesting the Minister intervene to consider whether special consideration can be given to grant a visa. An example is where a non-citizen has no entitlement to a visa but has an Australian child who must remain in Australia.
The end of the migration journey is obtaining Australian citizenship and we love helping our clients through this last step. We assist by assessing eligibility, preparing and submitting the application.
