Irish Chamber

2018 Finalist - Access Visas Migration Services

Irish Australian Business Awards Peoples Choice 2018

Established in 2014, Access Visas Migration Services provides professional immigration advice, visa case management and migration services to individuals, families, trades, professionals, small local businesses and large corporate companies.
I, Mairead O'Connor, am the Principal Migration Agent and I migrated to Australia myself in 2003. I quickly fell in love with the country and it's lifestyle, and after my first year was sponsored by an Australian company on a 4 year temporary work visa.
I was through my own first-hand experiences with visas and the intense and complex Australian migration system, where I developed my interest into the profession. After a number of years of deliberating it, I decided to go back to study and completed my Graduate Certificate in Migration Law from the Australian National University (ANU) in 2013. Access Visas Migration Services was established in 2014 and I haven't looked back since.

The Access Visas office is located in Randwick, Sydney. I work with a number of small and large Australian businesses, from a range of industries and with individual clients from all over the world, including a very large proportion who are Irish. Services include the full management of a wide variety of visa types such as Employer Nominated, Regional, Skilled, Family & Partner and Business & Innovation visas.
I endeavour to focus on offering my clients an honest, tailored and effective approach to suit their particular immigration requirements; ensuring that the comprehensive advice and assistance provided gives them the best opportunity to meet their migration needs and secure relevant visa types. The visa regime in Australia is in a state of continual change and in a time of great confusion and ongoing amendments to the migration regulations and policies, this level of service is crucial. My business is solely based on referrals and word of mouth and fortunately, I haven't found a need for marketing.
Next year I hope to expand the business a little and take on some extra help, while ensuring to maintain the same level of boutique and personalised services, that has built the sound reputation of Access Visas.
I am a Registered Agent with the Office of the Migration Agents Registration Authority (OMARA), a member of the Migration Institute of Australia (MIA) and Migration Alliance (MA).

I genuinely love my job and can't imagine another area of law that offers quite the same level of satisfaction. Nothing feels as good as calling someone to tell them that their Australian visa has been approved.
