FBP International is proud to say that it’s the only firm in the GCC region to have in-house Australian Lawyers and Advisors who specialize in Australian Immigration Law, which we believe allows us to provide Australian immigration advice at the highest standard, unlike most migration agencies. Australian Immigration law is highly specialized in the area of the law and hence Registered Migration Agents (RMA’s), even in Australia, are not always thoroughly equipped and experienced to advise.
A significant difference between an RMA, and an Immigration Lawyer, is the level of qualification and study undertaken. For example, if your case goes to court, our Immigration Lawyers have complete knowledge and experience and thus can provide seamless representation, unlike an RMA. In a nutshell, an RMA cannot offer “Immigration Legal Assistance” within the meaning of s 277 of the Migration Act1958.
“FBP International’s in-house Australian Immigration Lawyers and Advisors makes us the ONLY qualified, knowledgeable, and highly experienced firm in this region to offer Australian Immigration legal advice and services.”
Under the new legislation passed by the Australian Government in 2021, all Australian immigrant agents do not need to register with MARA (Office of the Immigration Agent Registration Authority). If an Australian immigration agent remains registered with MARA, they will need to suspend legal affairs to remain a MARA Immigration Agent Registrar. FBP International Australian Lawyers has chosen not to continue recording withMARA because they are not in favor of abandoning the bar’s certification.
Despite being referred to as Australian immigration law experts, we save money and charge significantly less than most immigration law firms for the same work. All of this is for the benefit of individuals and families who wish to use our services.
FBP International is proud to say that it’s the only firm in the region to have in-house Australian Lawyers and Advisors.
