Registered Migration Agents located in the Northern Inland region


It is not the role of RDA Northern Inland to provide advice. We can explain the requirements (for assessment) of the 187 and 489 visas. You should only seek advice from a formally registered migration agent. Choosing an agent based in your local region could be advantageous, due to local knowledge, regional commitment and general logistic efficiencies.
