Ask any small business owner about the most difficult aspect of running a business and you’ll most likely get an array of answers. However, one thing in common that most discover when venturing down the path of business ownership is trying to cope with the never-ending task of balancing business expenses and managing the cash flow. Just as you get your head above water and take a few deep breaths, along comes another unexpected expense!

Starting off as a small business back in 2008, BizCover knows all too well the lengths that a small business needs to go to in order to stay afloat, let alone the extra effort and expense it takes to grow a business and take it to the next level. So they set out to be the fairy godmother for the world of SME’s. But instead of turning a pumpkin into a carriage, they’ve been granting wishes of small businesses around Australia since 2014 with their BizGiver Grant, which aims to give back to the small business community who have helped fuel their business.

It has come to the attention of Migration Alliance that the Migration Institute of Australia has issued a “MIA Notice” – No. 86: 17 November 2017 concerning a new Legislative Instrument concerning the “Arrangements for Partner and Prospective Marriage Visa Applications” – IMMI 17/101, dated 16 November 2017 – that has the potential to cause panic, distress, alarm and uproar among Registered Migration Agents and their clients!! 

See the MIA notice below.

And so far, despite our best efforts, we have not been able to confirm at all what the MIA has said.

A registered migration agent who wishes to remain unknown, has managed to get into Sydney Airport international departures area with her Australian passport and without a boarding pass on the weekend. 

The migration agent went to take her son through customs at Sydney Airport.  She was not flying with her son.  The migration agent went through the customs hall and placed her passport on the scanner, then entered the departures hall without a problem.  She did not complete a departures card and put it in the glass box as she was not departing.  

The migration agent then said goodbye to her son, and proceeded to leave the airport departures hall.  She tried to get out via the customs security gates.  A security guard said 'you shouldn't be here'.  The guard told the agent to tell border security that 'she had left her medication in the car' as the reason she needed to leave the departures hall.  The agent was let out by Border Force, but the Border Force held her passport as they assumed that she was coming back to join a flight.  The migration agent said 'I am not coming back and I just came in to see my son off.  I need my passport'.
