The Migration Conferences 2013 ( are heading to Dandenong

The Dandenong Club will be hosting one of the many events happening all over the country as part of this year's Migration Conference series.

This is an indispensable opportunity for all migration consultants in the region to meet and discuss topics ranging from applications for immigration visas to developments in the citizenship application process.

Dandenong is the perfect location for a conference focussing on migration issues. Home to people affiliated with over 100 nationalities, this suburb is one of the most ethnically diverse areas in Victoria.

According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, a whopping 55.5 per cent of those living in Dandenong were born overseas. The most common countries of origin are India, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan and China, but approximately 156 different birthplaces from around the world have been registered.

The Dandenong leg of the Migration Conferences 2013 series will take place on October 4 and 5.

Registered migration agent Michael Jeremy will be hosting a series of talks over the course of the two-day conference which will cover a wide range of useful topics and information.

Attending Mr Jeremy's mandatory sessions on the intricacies of business, file and accounts management will help you to be a more efficient and effective agent.

He will also be discussing the importance of ethics and professional practice on the afternoon of October 5, which is a must-attend session for everyone interested in bettering their client-interaction abilities.

For those interested in learning more about the different types of migration visas available, Mr Jeremy has some fascinating and, no doubt, thought-provoking talks lined up for you.

All your questions about child, carer and remaining visitor visas, business innovation visas and partner visas will be answered, and several discussions about the SkillSelect system will be held.

We particularly recommend attending the presentations on temporary business sponsorship, which is happening on October 5 at 09:45, and the employer nomination scheme, which is happening straight afterwards at 11:30.

The government has been contemplating significant changes to these migration visa systems in recent months, and has recently introduced harsher penalties for those who abuse them. It is therefore in your and your clients' best interests to make sure your knowledge of both schemes is completely up-to-date.

It costs just $265 for Migration Alliance members to attend - so register your interest now at
