We have other services designed to navigate the complexities of your migration journey. From Migration Skills Assessments and Health Practitioner accreditation to Citizenship, Health, and Character Waivers, our expert team offers tailored support, ensuring your path to living, working, or becoming a citizen in Australia is clear and achievable.

  • Migration Skills Assessments

    Navigating the path to recognition for your professional skills in Australia, Longton Migration offers comprehensive support in obtaining Migration Skills Assessments. This crucial step validates your qualifications and work experience, paving the way for a successful migration process for skilled professionals.

    Several visa pathways require holding a valid Migration Skills Assessment. Migration Skills Assessments are devolved by the Department of Home Affairs to designated authorities, and each occupation (or group of occupations) are handled by one (or more) of the designated Migration Skills Assessment authorities.

    As one would imagine, having literally hundreds of occupations and dozens of assessing authorities, means a plethora of differing eligibility criteria, document requirements, and processes. 

    Eligibility Evaluation: Our team provides an in-depth review to ensure your qualifications meet Australian standards.

    • Documentation Guidance: Assistance in compiling all necessary documentation, ensuring accuracy and completeness.
    • Application Submission: Expert support in submitting your application to the relevant assessing authority, enhancing your chances of a favourable outcome.
  • Migration for Health Practitioners

    Australia has an ever growing shortage in several health occupations, including but not limited to Medical Doctors and Nurses. At the same time, the stringent standards that Australia boasts for the requirements for health practitioners registration and practice mean the process to be admitted and registered can be quite complex.

    Our team of specialised practitioners can offer specialised assistance for health practitioners aiming to practise in Australia, Longton Migration simplifies the complex accreditation and visa application process.

    • Accreditation Support: Guidance through the accreditation process with Australian health regulatory bodies.
    • Visa Application Assistance: Tailored advice on selecting the right visa and support throughout the application process.
  • Citizenship

    Australian Citizenship is the ultimate goal and the endgame for all migrants. It is the final step in a migrant’s Australian journey, and the pinnacle of a person’s commitment to Australia.

    Australian Citizenship comes with a range of privileges and obligations, such as being able to say “I am Australian”.

    Privileges of Australian Citizenship include (among other things):

    • The indefinite and automatic right to return and be admitted to Australia.
    • The right to nominate for political office at the local government, state or territory, and federal levels, as well as the right to be enrolled to vote in those elections.
    • Certain jobs such as Commonwealth government and defence jobs require the candidate to be an Australian Citizen.
    • Immunity from removal from Australia (with limited exceptions otherwise).
    • The right to apply for and hold an Australian Passport, currently ranked 5th best passport by the Henley Passport Index, with visa-free or visa-upon-arrival access to 190 countries.
    • The right to seek consular or diplomatic assistance while travelling overseas from Australian diplomatic missions.

    Australian Citizenship comes with obligations as well, such as the obligation to vote in all elections, the obligation to defend Australia should the need ever arise, and the obligation to follow Australian values such as democracy, equality, and freedom of association.

    There are various ways one can become an Australian Citizen, including by birth, conferral, descent and adoption. At Longton Migration, we can support you in your  final step of your Australian migration journey with our citizenship application support. Our experienced Migration Lawyers and Registered Migration Agents at Longton Migration will ensure a smooth transition into Australian citizenship, highlighting the benefits and responsibilities that come with this new status.

I just want to take the time to thank the legend Ahmad Shady who went above and beyond for me. He completely took the stress out of a super complex situation and streamlined all the documentation needed so I could be more present with my newborn daughter in Texas. He quickly transitioned from my migration agent to a good friend and I’m forever grateful for his kindness and support during those tough times. 🙏

'I want to thank Redd and Nutchaya for accepting my immigration matter and making impossible, possible. Nutchaya and Redd paid attention to the details as a result they were able to reverse the adverse decision from the Department of Home and Affairs and won the case in AAT. The submission to AAT was very details and well written. They are very honest and told me how difficult my case was, but they tried their best to fight for me. I appreciate their effort and care throughout the process. I highly recommend them as immigration lawyers.'
