Fees and service structure

We are proud to always charge reasonable fees and that is why we always openly put them on our website. Individual cases are different, so charges may vary depending on the complexity of the case. The prices on this page are an average and may vary slightly depending on the complexity of your case. Please contact us for an accurate quote for your case.

"To protect your payment, all clients' funds are kept in a separate and secure client account until the work has been completed"

Fee payment process

The first step is to contact us and send us information about your case. We will find out as much as possible about your immigration matter and decide on what option is best for you. If we find that there is nothing that can be done, then the process ends there.

  1. Once we have assessed your situation, we will advise you on this and provide you with a quote for the work to be done
  2. If you accept this quote, we will send you a written agreement (if appropriate), and an invoice.
  3. We will send you a receipt and start work when the invoice is paid and the agreement has been signed and returned
  4. Once the stages of work have been completed as in the agreement, the fee for that stage will be transferred from our client account to our business account. Until this time your payment is kept in our secure client account and this fee may be eligible for a refund as per our refund policy 

As well as being a IAA Code of Conduct requirement, we are committed to providing a quality service that is easy for everyone to understand and use, at a reasonable cost.
