Visa Refusal with Migration Global Assistance

What's Hot
habibihabibi MandaluyongTotal Reaction Points: 2Member
Hi Everyone,
Just want to share that I got visa refusal and my agent is Migration Global Assistance. I got my ACS letter last year with 6 years deducted from my experience as I am not an IT graduate. They(MGA) still let me proceed with the application after I asked them about the content of the ACS letter. I paid them a lot and of course, the visa fee for me and my family, which is not refundable. Sad to say, the agent just told me that they have no control of the decision of DIBP. They just left me with just a letter stating good luck on my pursuit of dreams to go to Australia. For those of you who hired or who will hire an agent, just make sure that your agent is credible. Don't take their word for it. Be very vigilant. If you can DIY, might as well go for this one as you will be the one to get all your requirements. Had I known before that there is a forum like this, I would go for DIY as the process is not a rocket science. Good luck to everyone and may God bless you all.

    Sorry to hear this @habibi. Do you have any idea what the specific reason was for the refusal? Was it overclaiming of points, insufficient documents, etc? Ang hirap ng ganyan, but hopefully there will still be a way for you to pursue other avenues.

    @habibi kung 55 points ka lang, pwede naman +5 para sa state sponsor...or better sa IELTS e makakuha ka ng mas mataas na marking para pandagdag ng points...

    @dhey_almighty Good for you. The case is different for IT professionals since ACS started deducting work experience sa mga nagpapaassess sa kanila which I think was misinterpreted by the agent.

    @habibi Maybe you can try reaching out to your lawyer already? Kaya ka nagbabayad sa kanila diba, they're supposed to do their jobs WELL. Yun ang trabaho ng agencies diba.

    @dhey_almighty Sabi nila sorry. non-appealable ang nakalagay sa decision record. Sabi ng agent, they've exhausted all the efforts to make the appeal pero hindi ko nakita yung aksyon na yun. They just forwarded the decision record and the engagement is done with their sorry letter.

    @habibi Sayang nga. It seems the agent you got or whoever they assigned to your case was incompetent. Medyo common knowledge na nagbabawas ang ACS diba, and given how there are sooo many applicants in IT, dapat ata alam na nila yan. See if you can find a way to get them to pay you back for their incompetence - a refund of the fees you paid them perhaps? I understand it might be draining at this point, dami mong nasayang na pagod at pera. Pero may pag-asa pa yan. Tulad ng nasabi ng iba rito, you can still improve your points by taking the IELTS and/or applying for state sponsorship, then lodge your EOI again this time with the correct points.

    I really hope this goes well for you. The people here in the forum will be behind you all the way.

    @cholle Yes. Hindi naman nawawalan ng pag-asa. Applied for other country. Kung hindi umabot sa cap, I'll still pursue Australia if ever. Anyway, kainggit ang score mo sa IELTS. Parang highly improbable sa akin yan lalo sa speaking. God bless on your big move to the land down under. Cheers!

    @habibi mate, wag ka nga mawalan ng pagasa...though sayang talaga...

    if possible, wag ka na mag agent...try mo ulet subukan through pinoyau na lang...dami naman tutulong sayo dito...un nga lang at panibagong fees na naman...pero malay mo di ba...

    anyways, sino agent mo? J P ba ang initials?! :-)

    @dhey_almighty Tama madali nga lang yung proseso. After knowing this forum nga, nanghinayang ako before na nagbayad ako ng napakalaki sa agent na ang ginawa lang ay utusan ka na ibigay sa kanya ang dokumento para I-upload nila sa skillselect. Kung sila sana gumawa ng RPL baka sulit pa. Anyway, those are part of the things I've learned. I 've learned it the hard and painful way but life must go on. After all we are doing this for the future of our family and we can't just stop and say we are defeated. Baka may iba pang plano ang Diyos. Anyway, God bless us all! Good luck sa bago mong buhay sa Australia.

    The agent I used was also Migration Global Assistance. I am sorry to hear about your unfortunate experience with them. I, however, have been very much satisfied with their service and have in fact, referred a few friends already. One of which, after less than 3 months processing his PR visa 189, has already received his invitation and is well on his way to getting that Visa approved.

    I think, sometimes, the competence of the agent assigned to you plays a big factor. Migration Global Assistance needs to look into this as even though some of us can vouch for their credibility and good service, there are some who go through the flipside.

    What I can say is though, I don't think Migration Global Assistance is a scam. They are a legitimate migration assistance company.

    55 points is not sufficient to submit a visa application. It is a wonder why your agent even recommended you pursue your application. Maybe you can file a complaint with the management of Migration Global Assistance.

    @lock_code2004 Thanks. This time alam ko na yung process. By the way, kung visa refused ba ako pwede ulit ako mag-apply? I emailed DIBP pero wala akong narinig na sagot. I need to start over again kasi nagpalit ako ng job. Kailangan ulit ng ACS assessment para sa akin.

New SimplyStall Mobile App!

Hi everyone!

I'm very happy to announce PinoyAu Forum's new app called "SimplyStall" . It's a new Gumtree like service for Pinoys in Australia but in a way better!

So if you have any items just collecting dust? Why not convert it to cash?

If you are selling new items or products or wish to give an item away for free then this might be a good avenue for you.

This project is a new initiative to unify and have a common portal for Pinoys in Australia to sell and share stuffs.

It's now available on Google Play and Apple App Store.

Please do try it out. I'd appreciate if you can help me spread the good news and start selling your old or new stuffs.
