Engaging a Registered Migration Agent can be a worthwhile investment because Australian migration law is complex and the law, policy and procedures changes frequently, sometimes at short notice.
While it is certainly possible to apply for an Australian visa without any assistance, it can be an expensive and complex process with the potential for many areas to go wrong.
A range of services on the full complement of Australian visas is offered, and, costs are fair and reasonable.
