How many Visa Applications are lodged by Registered Migration Agents?
From the latest half-yearly report on the “provision of immigration assistance in Australia” report, it shows that most of the Business Skills, Employer Sponsored and Temporary Skill Shortage visa applications were lodged by a Registered Migration Agent (RMA) during those 6 months. Presumably due to the complexity of most of those applications.
The following shows the numbers of different Visa groups that were lodged by a Registered Migration Agent in the last six months of 2020 (1 July – 31 December 2020).
|Visa class||RMA used||Total applications||% lodged by an RMA|
|Temporary Skill Shortage||19,098||23,987||80%|
|TOTAL (in ICSE)||165,890||514,973||32%|
