Hi Ruth,


I would always use a MARA agent where possible as this gives you protection should anything happen. It doesn't mean that Mick is not a good agent; far from it, but MARA means that your visa would still be handled should anything happen to the agent you are deaing with.

Hi Ruth,

I just wanted to continue to tell you about the agent.

Sammy was always at the end  the phone, in fact i hardly ever had to ring him as he always worked one step ahead and emailed me everything i needed to know straight away. I never had to chase him, not once for information or updates. He provided us with full guidance on the forms and did alot of the completions himself. He provided lots and lots ( a full file infact) of documentary guidance for each step of the way, from the practical right through to the medical, all in very straight forward english and easy to follow. He has an outstanding knowledge of the system,  extremely professional approach and is thorough. There were many hurdles to face, it was by no means straight forward and as hurdles presented themselves Sammy new exactly how high we had to jump to get over them and we did. He never confused me with the jargon, nor rush me and i always felt i could query and question anything. In fact we regularly discussed the problems and mutually agreed what to do at every stage. He is very hardworking and commited to the task in hard, emailing me either very early or very late with updates . Without doubt worth every penny spent as in 15 months we have our visas and as i said i truly believe it would not have been possble without him. I would reccomend him again and again.

Good luck.

Hi Ruth,

We have just completed the whole process and finally got our visa granted yesterday. We are a family of 5 and my husband is a plumber and we have state sponsorship to ACT. We were in the same position as you are about 15 months ago; looking for an agent and thinking "how do we choose". We made a decision to use


Taylor Hampton Solicitors LLP 

,  , 

 3rd floor

218 Strand



 This decision was made on the personal reviews already posted on the website but what appealed to me the most was four main features. Sammy Naghi is not only a solicitor in the uk, he is also an Australian solicitor, and a migration agent, and he is Australian himself originally from Sydney.  I felt that someone with all these features could be worth using. I was not wrong. Sammy is without question the reason that our application was successful as despite mine and my husbands intelligence (yes we can fill in forms and send photocopies) it is his understanding of the immigration system, his knowledge for the logic behind some of the form questions and his outstanding intuition of knowing just when to raise a question ot two with the DIAC to try and pre empt queries and avoid unnecessary delays.
