HIGH APPLICATION SUCCESS RATE - 98.5%
The decision to emigrate to a new country is possibly the biggest decision you'll ever make, so you want to be sure that you obtain the visa that will enable you to achieve this objective. Many potential immigrants, however, grossly underestimate the possibility that their application may be refused or rejected, for a range of reasons - see "Risks" below.
What you need is a way of ensuring that your application has the BEST POSSIBLE chance of success. We have a success rate of 98.5% for qualifying lodged permanent residence applications.
EXPERTISE IN VISA PROCESSING AND RESETTLEMENT
With over 10 years professional experience of the emigration industries of Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the United Kingdom and USA, Oasis is at the forefront of developments to improve services for new immigrants. We have assisted many people to emigrate and our consultants have extensive backgrounds in emigration law. As such, they conform to the Codes of Conduct laid down by governments and their emigration authorities to protect the interests of new immigrants.
PERSONALISED, IN-DEPTH ASSESSMENT PROCEDURES
Oasis maintains its high application success rate by ensuring a high standard of pre-application assessment. This saves you time and money in the long-run, by determining at an early stage if you "qualify" for emigration and if so, what are your best visa options. We operate a two-stage assessment system; "Quick Check" eligibility test, followed by a detailed "Full Check" assessment which produces a considered report about your emigration situation. We believe that through this comprehensive treatment of your specific situation, we can provide you with the best possible emigration service.
ONGOING SUPPORT & ASSISTANCE FROM START TO FINISH
Oasis offers the kind of monitoring and adaptability that is often essential in helping you reach your goal of permanent residency in a new country. We can propose alternative visa "pathways" which may not be known to 'lay' applicants, and can react quickly and effectively to changes in emigration regulations which frequently occur while your application is in progress. For instance, a good agent might recommend applying for a form of temporary (interim) visa - which might be easier to obtain - if the eligibility criteria for permanent visas become too strict.
AVOIDING UNNECESSARY STRESS, COST AND DELAY
You will have plenty to think about when emigrating to a new country. Using an experienced migration agency can give you the reassurance and peace of mind to be able to plan ahead with confidence. The cost of employing an experienced migration agency, such as Oasis, to handle your visa application can pale into insignificance compared to the possible costs of trying to do it yourself. Although migration agency fees - because they are similar to other professional fees - can sometimes seem expensive, many people underestimate the costs that they can incur themselves and also don't relate them to other costs, such as for airfares, removals and accommodation.Migration agencies provide you with clear instructions, a continual line of communication and a way of avoiding unnecessary cost & delay.
NEARLY HALF OF VISA APPLICANTS NOW USE A MIGRATION AGENT
In the past year, media reports have suggested that nearly HALF of all applicants now use an agent at some stage in the emigration process to achieve their emigration dreams and to protect themselves from the emigration risks.
BEWARE of these real emigration risks:-
HIGH FAILURE RATE OF DO-IT-YOURSELF EMIGRATION
Potential immigrants often underestimate the difficulty of applying for some types of visas and the likelihood that their application might actually be rejected, or at least delayed much longer than they expected. There are many possible 'pitfalls' - applying under the wrong visa class, claiming the wrong occupational classification, failing to provide all necessary documentation, failing to answer official questions correctly.
Industry estimates are that up to 50% of people who start the permanent residence emigration process under some visa classes FAIL to successfully receive their residence visas WITHOUT the assistance of a emigration Adviser .
Many Do-It-Yourself applicants fail in their attempts to emigrate because they become confused and frustrated with the emigration process even at an early stage (eg. the qualification or skills assessment stage), or they find it difficult or impossible to get answers from the emigration authorities to their specific concerns or questions. As a result, many potential immigrants unnecessarily drop out of the application process.
COMPLEX VISA REGULATIONS & APPLICATION PROCEDURES
Official emigration forms are designed to gather all the necessary "evidence" required for the emigration authorities to analyse applicants from around the world and to decide whether or not to grant them a visa. As such, these forms can often be long, complex, and may be accompanied by further paperwork from assessment or accreditation organisations.
DON'T LET YOUR EMIGRATION DREAMS CRUMBLE ON A TECHNICALITY!
Some applicants who apply online or directly with the emigration authorities, make the mistake of applying under the wrong visa class or they make a seemingly small mistake in the application process, such as claiming the wrong occupation classification, failing to provide the correct documentation, or failing to answer official questions correctly. Although the applicant may be fundamentally eligible if they cannot provide the correct evidence, the case can and often is, refused. Generally, a 95% correct visa application will result in 100% refusal.
Oasis protects you from the risk of refusal or unnecessary delay by submitting a fully-documented application on your behalf in the format requested by the relevant emigration authority. Our experienced team of agents will compile, double-check and lodge your online or physical residence visa application in order to avoid unnecessary delays and risk, and means that you will receive your visas as soon as possible, and not be one of the thousands of applicants who are unnecessarily refused every year.
CHANGEABLE GOVERNMENT EMIGRATION POLICIES
As economic conditions change, so do the emigration policies of both national and regional governments, as they attempt to tailor the type and number of incoming immigrants to suit their needs. As a result, changes can occur regularly in the eligibility criteria, the range of visa classes and the official application procedures which will face you as an intending immigrant. Indeed, some of these changes may affect your application during its progress towards approval, which is an important reason for having a professional, proactive migration agent on your side. Oasis is staffed by people whose job it is to work with emigration authorities and qualification assessment organisations on a daily basis, streamlining their clients' applications in order to avoid the effects of policy changes and ensure the smoothest and speediest result possible.
INCREASING COMPETITION FOR NEW IMMIGRANT PLACES
In recent years, governments have tightened up their emigration quotas, so that there is increasing competition for a restricted number of visas. At the same time, eligibility requirements have become more demanding and application procedures have become stricter. In other words, when applying for your visa you need to be sure to get it right, and preferably right first time.
BEWARE OF ONLINE SELF-ASSESSMENT TOOLS OR VISA WIZARDS
- MANY GET IT WRONG.
Without professional expertise, many people incorrectly assess themselves, using online self-assessment devices provided by some emigration authorities. As a result, many people apply when they are not eligible or apply under the wrong visa class, leading to refusal.
