What is the Code of Conduct that must be observed by ALL visa service providers? If the visa service provider does not comply with (and is found to have complied with) the Code of Conduct, the Migration Agent may be deregistered. In the Code of Conduct, there are some interesting things that you should know.Agents are required, for instance, to have a high level of understanding of the Skilled Migration Act and the relevant regulations. Any policy changes can have a massive impact on visa applications, so make sure your agent is up-to-date with all changes to the policy. Visa service providers are often in a situation where individuals who do not know all the relevant laws can easily benefit from them. If they have a conflict of interest, a registered agent is not permitted to act for someone and that involves anyone with whom they might intend to go into business. While there is no set fee for you to be charged by a qualified migration agent, it is discretionary. This does not mean that whatever they like, they can charge them! They are required, under the Code of Conduct, to charge what is reasonable under the circumstances.
