Disclaimer

OV Australia is a non-governmental entity providing a value added assessment and visa assistance service for those who want to immigrate to Australia. The Australian and New Zealand Skilled worker categories are available at no cost on the Department of Immigration official websites.

As immigration law is subject to regular legislative and other practical changes, it is recommended that you complete a comprehensive assessment of your migration eligibility. The information contained on our pre-eligibility test is only intended to provide you with an initial indication of your visa eligibility, therefore you should not rely on these results only. Once you have completed this first step and are found eligible to migrate, you can purchase a service that will enable one of our Registered Migration Agents to assist you further with your case.

All personal data provided by you to OV Australia over the phone, via email and on our website www.OVAustralia.com, will be used specifically to determine your eligibility. Accurate and complete information is essential to provide you with a valid assessment, so we cannot be held responsible for migration advice based upon insufficient data. Ultimately you will need to validate all of your information to the relevant authorities and meet the requirements of the AUS/NZ Department of Immigration to lodge a successful visa application.
