    Some people i know in my home town have logged thier visa application with WA, however 18 months on they are still awaiting a ansew on PR.

    A few weeks ago they recieved a email from thier visa agent telling them they needed to pay £2000 or their application would go to the bottom of the list!!!!!

    Surely this is a scam on the part of their visa agent or is it????

    I would not have thought the goverment would demand money like this, dose anyone/friends have any experiance of this that could help them out :)

    Sounds dodgy, might be worth checking out the agents validity

    It sounds dodgy or perhaps misinterpreted??

     

    The agent should be registered with MARA.

     

    Never heard of keeping your place in the queue by paying for it!!!:skeptical:

    The closest thing I can think of is certain types of visa (only parent ones I thought) you can pay £2k to get fast tracked but you do that right at the beginning not after 18 months. Have you thought about ringing the Australia house help line? It's expensive at £1 per min but if it saves you £2k and stops dodgy agents it could be worth it.
