" That's fantastic news. I just want to say thank you for all your help in getting this sorted. It was such a relief to have the pressure off myself, especially when starting a new career. It definitely feels great to no longer be dealing with any immigration issues and we can just work on further setting ourselves up in Australia. Thank you again for everything. "

" Sue helped to get my Fiancée and her two daughters into Australia to visit my family. This was their first trip outside of the Philippines and Sue managed to guide us through the process to get a Subclass 600 Visitor visa approved with plenty of time to plan our trip. Thanks Sue. "

600 Visitor Visa Applications

" Thank you Sue and the great team at Rainsford and Associates for assisting me with my complicated citizenship application. I had two failed attempts at applying for Australian Citizenship off the back of my longstanding permanent residency. Due to over 20 years of overseas business travel it was not immediately clear to me how to complete the application and present this in a way the Australian Department of Immigration could understand my situation and make a complete and informed decision. Sue guided me through the process, ensured key factors were included and milestones were alerted to me early so as not to waste time, resulting in a smooth approval with no guesswork. I highly recommend Rainsford and Associates for immigration related services. "
