Following the OMARA's recent decision to cease printing RMA Registration Cards and RMA practising certificates, Migration Alliance, with the support of LTA, now offers these two essential items for sale to RMAs.
 
The RMA registration cards and practising certificates now feature a unique QR code which links back to the OMARA website, allowing clients to scan and verify that the RMA named on the card / certificate is currently registered (not suspended, cancelled, lapsed).
 
To purchase your RMA Registration card and/or Practising Certificate, or for more information and a full description, please click here
