      This is what we paid for everything to give you an idea - I am guessing their price includes skills etc -

      Go Matilda 1495
      TRA 120 ($300)
      Certified Copies 100 (which your agent can now do for you)
      Visa 830 ($1985)

      Our total (excluding medicals which were 475) was 2545

      Have your agents told you what exactly is included in the price as this does seem high :roll:

      Hi thanks for replying the price only includes their fee all the other things you mention we will have to pay as well, on top of the 3900+vat. :oops:

      Have queried the first bill which we just received and they took off 4 units of time (6 minute intervals) as a gesture of "good will" .Haven't paid it yet.....does anybody know how to get out of the contract we've already paid a deposit of 950

      Sorry to hear you have problems with your agency :(

      Its can be quite expensive, we had 3 quotes & opted to go with Overseas Emigration, based in Edinburgh. We are in the final stages of the process, awaiting the visa. I would definitely recommend them.

      Their fee was 1700 + VAT, so more than Jane & Lisa paid. I think sometimes you just have to shop around

      Good luck :)
