Our Competitive Advantage – knowledge, experience, success

Call Australia Home Migration is a boutique company specialising in Australian migration law. Our standard is set high, the service you receive is up to date, knowledgeable, accurate, based on the latest migration legislation and in your best interest. We only contract when we are very confident the application will succeed. The agent you sign with, is the person you talk to and who manages your file from start to finish.

From the moment you contract with us, you will know what makes Call Australia Home Migration unique. We evaluate, advise, plan, prepare, and communicate with you. Our knowledge of migration law is extensive, we are highly experienced and have exceptionally high application success rates. Our pre-contract assessments of your migration eligibility is extensive. We prepare and lodge visas on time and give you feedback through the process. You will have peace of mind and are assured that we can be reached when you need to talk to us. We take our role as your migration agent serious. We proudly attach our names to your application.

What is right for you

Potential migrants want to know that their agent is qualified, registered and will do what is contracted to do. When you part with your hard-earned money you want to know you will receive what you are paying for. You have that assurance with Call Australia Home Migration. Our professional fees are competitive with no hidden fees. We prepare our advice letters to suit your specific circumstances and we strategise with the whole picture in mind. Often migrants only find out after arriving in Australia that the visa they are on, or the occupation chosen does not align with what is best for them and may undermine obtaining permanent residency. We plan from the beginning so you have the confidence that the visa and occupation is correct for your specific situation.

Our advice letters are clear and to the point. Complex cases may require a non-refundable retainer before we disclose our intellectual property (i.e. specific pathway), etc. Ask us as fees may apply to different levels of advice given.

ONLINE QUESTIONNAIRE – please complete our online questionnaire for an assessment. We will email you the assessment.

Individual Attention

We purposely choose to remain a boutique business so we can offer individual attention to our contracted clients. We believe in walking with our clients, you are a person to us, not a $ amount attached to a file number. We believe by providing you with our best service, is the key to our successful business – you will be our best advertisement.

  1. Hi Joey and Team

    I contacted you guys quite a few years ago out of curiosity of fees etc, but really have no idea what I did with it. However, we are seriously looking at the possibility of migrating to Australia now, from South Africa. We have kids that we need to think of.

    Please let me know what we need to do? I can maybe send you our CV that you can have a look at it, and let me know if there is a way that we can go over?

  3. I am a 62 year old widow living in SA. My son, brother and sister all live in Australia and I can no longer cope being on my own in SA. I have a 44 year old daughter who would also be interested in going as we have no family left in SA. She is a highly qualified PA and I am retired. My family are prepared to take care of me financially. I have a current 3 year 8501 visitors visa. Any suggestions on how I could apply to join my family? Could I use the current visa to stay there for the time my visa is valid if I leave the country for a few day after 3 months and then apply while I am there? Kind regards Laureen van Rooyen

  16. Hallo.

    Wil graag uitvind of daat geleenthede is vir boere in Australia? Ons het tans ons eie plaas en besluit om dalk te immigreer. ( so hard gewerk aan die bietjie wat ons het en moeilik om te los). My man het n rooi seel in dieselwerktuigkundige maar het nie op datum gebly met die nuwe tegnologie nie. Al wat hy kan is boer. Ek het nie verder studeer nie maar het wel algemene kantoorwerk gedoen. Huidiglik boer en werk ons self. Ek meestal met skape. . Dink jy daar is plek vir ons?

  22. Hi there. We are interested in immigrating to Australia, just don’t know where to start. Some basic info:
    I’m 33, working as a Operator at a platinum refinery for 7 years.I only got a matric certification with math and science. Wife is 32, working as a bookkeeper for 4years.Has a bookkeeper certification. We have a 9 month old daughter. What are your views and advice on proceeding?

  23. Hallo Joey,
    Thanks for the feedback to my previous mail. We would like to clarify the best option from the information at hand. We hold the following visa:
    Visa Stream: Tourist
    Grant date: 20 March 2018
    Stay For/Until: 3Month (s)
    Entries: Multiple
    Last Date to Arrive: 20 March 2021
    Conditions: 8101 – No Work
    8201 – Max 3 Months Study
    STEP 1. Wait until I’m 65Y6M old then travel to Aus on the afore visa.
    STEP 2. Apply for visa SC864 while in Aus.
    STEP 3. Apply for onshore bridging visa BVB to be able to travel offshore (and work in Aus ?) while waiting for SC864 to be granted
    – Not sure how long we’ll have to wait after applied for SC864 before we could apply for BVB.
    Please also advise us of the following:
    – Waiting periods for these visas
    – Will we be able to work in Aus based on the afore procedures
    – Would you be able to assist us and your fees
    – Other costs involved
    – Are there any reduced fees for the elderly when taking pets.
    – How does the medical aid work while waiting; SA vs Aus
    – Any other requirements or information
    Just to add. Linda and I own a small registered cupboard installation company and have been doing installations of kitchen, bedroom and other cupboards for a number of years. We do not hold any carpentry certificates, as it is not a requirement in SA but we have a professional website and testimonials from clients of our work. Not sure if this would be of any benefit to find work in Aus. My son is a qualified CA in Aus and is considering setting-up this type of business additionally.
    Kind regards
    Leon & Linda
