Australian Visa Specialists

If you need assistance or advice regarding an Australian migration issue, or perhaps the whole process appears too daunting to tackle without the help of a professional, SMA are here for you. We provide relevant and up to date advice and support throughout the entire application process.

Allow SMA to unravel the often subtle legislative requirements that could, and often do, stand in the way of a successful visa outcome.

Our staff are experienced and have the finger on the pulse when it comes to interpreting migration law. Legislation in this sector changes on a regular basis and is not always available or easily obtained by the general public.

We specialise in offering information which is tailored to your needs to achieve a positive outcome according to your requirements. Your unique situation will be carefully assessed and you will be advised of possible options. At this time a proposal will be provided so that you are fully aware of the full cost of the process.

Although we will assist with any visa class, we specialize  in:

  • Subclass 457 Employer Sponsored temporary visas
  • All classes of Family and Partner visas
  • Employer Nominated Permanent visas (ENS/RSMS)
  • General Skilled Migration (SC189/190 and others)
  • Student visas
  • Skills Assessments – as required
  • State Sponsorship applications
  • Expression of Interest preparation and lodgement


We offer a comprehensive visa assistance service whereby we manage the process from start to finish, or we can offer an application check service for those who have compiled their own application but would like the peace of mind of having a  Registered Migration Agent check and report before lodgement.

Our principal migration agent, Steve Cooper, has worked long-term with a reputable Gold Coast Migration Law consultancy and is now using his broad knowledge and background experience in education, business and migration to assist those considering navigating the Australian migration process.

All visa classes have unique legislative requirements  and Steve and his team are able to point you in the right direction to achieve a successful outcome. If our assessment reveals that your options are limited or if in our opinion an application would be unlikely to succeed, you will be advised.

Our commitment to our clients is unrivalled and we will be available and responsive to your every enquiry or concern throughout the process.

SMA – here for you...
