Migration pathways to Australia are becoming increasingly difficult and anyone telling you that the process is easy would be outright lying to you. Despite the difficult nature of the migration options available, always seek professional advice and make sure it's not all 'YES' answers you want to hear. Caution should always be exercised and anyone guaranteeing you a result would definitely be lying (not to mention a breach of the Code of Conduct).


The information below provides a summary of possible migration options for applicants who have qualifying relatives living in Australia.
