Recent migration fraud cases highlight importance of the OMARA

Following cases of migration fraud committed by people posing as migration agents, Govt urging consumers who require immigration assistance to check agent is registered

In the last month, a 52–year-old man was charged with 23 migration fraud related offences in Queensland, and a 38-year-old Western Australian woman was sentenced to six and a half years jail for extensive migration fraud.

Assistant Minister for Customs, Community Safety and Multicultural Affairs the Hon Jason Wood, said anyone requiring immigration assistance should be extremely careful to avoid unlawful operators pretending to be registered migration agents.

“Only registered migration agents can legally give immigration assistance in Australia," Assistant Minister Wood said.

“Consumers seeking advice from those not listed with the OMARA risk being provided incorrect information, or being charged thousands of dollars for a fake service and no visa outcome."
