Fischer Migration can assist you with your Offshore Humanitarian Visa

Offshore Protection Visa (Class XB)

Information on this visa can be found on the immigration website at http://www.border.gov.au/Trav/Visa-1/200-. The application is free of charge and processing is currently estimated at 12 months. Migration Agent fees range from $1,200 to $3,500 AUD.

Sadly, fewer than 1% of these visas are granted each year and applicants proposed by an Australian organisation, spouse or dependent child under 18 are given preference.
