Being an international student in Australia, one must be aware of what MARA agents are. MARA agents are the migration lawyers registered & authorized by the Australian government to act on behalf of their clients who are looking for migration consultation or assistance with the visa applications. These migration lawyers know the Australian migration law inside-out and play a very major role in filing visa applications for international candidates in Australia.
With all the visa-related information available on the official website of the Australian government, the authorities have also made it possible (and easy) for the applicants to file their visa applications on their own. Despite this, most of the applicants seek the help of MARA agents to file their visa applications; and there are good reasons to do so! Here are some of the top reasons that MARA agents are required for different visa processes in Australia.
MARA Agents are Helpful in Many Ways
Right from a basic visa consultation to a full-fledged visa application, a MARA agent can help you with literally everything. Thousands of international students come to Australia every year and most of them seek help from education & migration consultants, whether in their home country or in Australia. MARA agents are also helpful to people who visit Australia on a work visa or even a partner visa.
When in a foreign land and unaware of the migration laws, MARA agents can come in really handy!
MARA Agents Know the Australian Migration Law Inside-Out
As mentioned earlier, MARA agents are the migration lawyers registered & authorized by the Government of Australia to represent clients who are looking for migration consultation or assistance with the visa application. As the migration laws keep changing from time to time, the MARA agents have to keep themselves updated with the latest changes in different migration policies. In short, the MARA agents know the Australian Migration law inside-out and can help the students and professionals get the best possible advice on their visa applications. Filing visa applications is a part and parcel of their work, and the agents are fully aware of the documents that one may need for certain visa types, including the tips, tricks, and way-outs of different situations!
MARA Agents Provide Best Advice on Visa Filing
Because MARA agents have a complete know-how of visa policies and scenarios, they can provide suggestions to increase the likelihood of positive visa outcomes. MARA agents are better aware of the latest happenings and changes that may happen in future, which puts them in a better position to provide insights on visa outcomes. This is the reason that one must consult a MARA agent before taking suggestions from a friend/acquaintance, for it can make a huge difference in the visa application.
End-to-End Assistance with Visa Application
MARA agents can provide complete assistance with their clients’ visa applications. Although the clients can fill and file their visa applications on their own, they may not be fully aware of the documents that need to be attached; this is the reason most of the clients get assistance from registered MARA agents. MARA agents are authorized by the Government of Australia to file visa applications on behalf of their clients.
Communicate with Department of Home Affairs on behalf of the Client
In certain cases, the Department of Home Affairs asks for additional documents from clients to make a decision on their visa application. On the first hand, a MARA agent makes sure that the client’s application is filed in the best possible way with no documents left to be attached. On the other hand, if the Department of Home Affairs asks for additional documents, the case can be better handled and responded to by a MARA agent.
Hiring a MARA Agent is the Right Choice to Make
There is a reason that most international students and professionals choose to hire a MARA agent instead of filing their own application, for it is totally worth it. Hiring a MARA agent is one of the best decisions one can take if planning to get their visa extended or call a family member into Australia. MARA agents also provide the best possible suggestion to get PR in Australia in the shortest time possible.

Soon my partner and I will be eligible to apply for the visa 887.
Our only question/doubt is regarding the validity of police certificates.
According to the link below, we do not need a new police certificate if we have not left the country.
See the following topic on the page/link: "Penal clearance certificates – validity issues" (or the image below).
Attention to the last bullet point on the topic in specific.

Does this still stand or has this changed since November 2019?
Our visa has been issued in November 2019 and since then we have not left Australia.
Do we need to get new police certificate clearances from previous countries?
Has anyone applied with expired policed certificate clearances and was okay?
Thank you very much in advance. Cheers!
Is there anybody who knows how I can include my spouse and children in the application for 887 while they are offshore?
My spouse and children have stuck overseas due to border closure, and by new concession for 887 applicants or dependents who are offshore, I should be able to include them in my application, but the online system does not let me include them because it detects that they are overseas!
Is there anybody who has had this problem?
Thank you in advance
