    Just did a check at MARA.gov.au

    https://portal.mara.gov.au/search-the-register-of-migration-agents/register-of-migration-agent-details/?ContactID=9e89029f-a052-e311-9402-005056ab0eca

    Seems like they just recently registered, although they were operating since 2003 "as they mentioned on their website" without any affiliation to MARA during that time? I don't know.

    By the way just an FYI... Upon a few research MNAL is operated by a person named Carmine Mercorella. Googling a bit will give you these

    https://www.findlaw.com.au/news/4178/court-makes-final-orders-in-asic-proceedings-again.aspx

    Just something to consider or to clear up with them.

    Thank you for further info about Mercorella po, maybe the case was. Already resolved since it was way back 2005?

    Re: their registration in 2021, itโ€™s a renewal I think. They posted it on their FB page. The first 2 digit on an agentโ€™s MARN means the year they are registered to be an agent. In their case they are registered since 2003. I am also thinking availing their services. Seems legit to me.

    @Admin I've read the articles that you've provided, the 2nd article hits Carmine Mercorella's name because it contains the name of Carmine Misale and Guesseppe Antonio Mercorella. I don't know about the first article but their age are a bit close since the DOB of the person from the article is July 14, 1975.
