A little Nigerian take on love

There are some really great Nigerian writers and speakers. One I have found recently is Elnathan John who writes over on that “other” platform on the interwebz that doesn’t have a re-blog button to automatically share.

Are decision makers adequately resourced?

In earlier articles I looked at the fee structure, international obligations and the growing pipeline of Partner Visa applications. Today I ask questions about the decision makers themselves. As the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) do not respond to questions from other than working journalists, my questions have not been answered. Consequently I […]

Do you need representation for a Partner Visa?

On Partner/Spouse Visa Denied? I don’t specifically recommend representation by a migration agent or lawyer for either an initial visa application or an MRT appeal.  Each couple must make their own decision.  These are my personal thoughts on this question.  I re-iterate my statement from Applying for a partner visa?: I am NOT a migration agent.  Anything I say […]
