TMI provide a user friendly and personal service, and professional management of your visa application process, we can also provide a consultation service and can assist with other immigration matters.

      At TMI we believe that it is important to consider a visa strategy based on your personal circumstances to ensure the optimum pathway forward towards your long term plans. Many people have more than one option open to them and there may be pros and cons to be considered. Others may not be eligible for permanent residence visa immediately, and in this situation it is important to consider not just obtaining a visa but rather the longer term pathway leading to permanent residence as some temporary options may limit your later options.

      A UK Expat, Tee lived and worked in a number of countries before settling in Australia. Being a migrant herself places Tee in a position to better understand some of the concerns and stress that can arise during the visa application and migration process. Tee has been an active member of Poms in Oz since 2009.
