Australia has a wide range of temporary and permanent residence visa categories. There are many factors that may affect an individual and their eligibility. Acorn Immigration's knowledge and experience in effectively assessing and evaluating each individual's case ensures the best possible outcome for every applicant.

Why use Acorn immigration?

Recruiting qualified personnel from overseas is an important part of HR strategy of many Australian businesses today. Australia's migration laws and requirements are continually changing and becoming more complex. Keeping up to date can place an unnecessary pressure on a company's human resources department.

Choosing the appropriate visa category and submitting a valid and complete application requires familiarity with immigration legislation that Human Resources (HR) departments may not have the time to acquire and maintain. A visa application that is rejected on a technicality may mean that a company loses an employee who could have made a valuable and worthwhile contribution (not to mention losses in terms of money and time).

Experience and Knowledge is Key.
