Australian Visas for Americans
Alberta Miculan, one of the directors of the Migration Ways, is a citizen of Australia, Italy and the U.S.A. Alberta lived in Los Angeles (Pasadena, Rancho Park and Beverly Hills) for 25 years and has more than 30 years of experience in the migration field. During this time, she served as a Senior Immigration Officer at the Australian Department of Immigration in Los Angeles. She also temporarily worked as an immigration officer at the Australian Embassy in Brazil. Alberta is fluent in Spanish, Italian and English.
Alberta’s extensive firsthand experience in the interpretation of Australian legislation at the Australian Consulate stands her in good stead to provide immigration advice. She also has a vast knowledge of the numerous visa categories. Alberta always provides clients with expert advice from the start of the visa application process to its end and continues to support clients even after an application has been granted.
Australia has had a long and rich relationship with the United States. During World War II, for example, more than 1 million American service personnel were stationed in or travelled through Australia. Of the 9 million visitors to Australia in the year to March 31, 2018, more than 800,000 come from the U.S.A. and spent $3.8 billion during their visits. Today, there are about 90,000 American-born Australian residents.
American Agent for Australian Visas
Alberta understands the context and needs of Americans, especially those in the entertainment and tech industries and those needing Partner visas. Alberta has, for example, worked with American production companies such as Bunim Murray, National Geographic, MTV, Active TV, and World of Wonder Productions, to secure Entertainment visas for crew and cast coming to film in Australia.
Most American citizens who want to visit Australia for less than 90 days can apply for a visitor visa online (see the ETA form) or they can hire Migration Ways to help them with their application. Other Australian visas, such as Student, Work, Entertainment and Partner visas, can be more complex and it advisable to use an expert with these visa applications. Migration Ways can work on all visa types for you, as well as on your Australian Citizenship and Permanent Residence applications.
