Post Visa Legal Services

The Migration Place is the dedicated visa division of Irish Bentley Lawyers, which has been assisting people to migrate to Australia since 2002.

We have helped our clients establish businesses in Australia in agriculture, mining, construction, the car manufacturing, franchising and hospitality.

We identify and advise on the best way to approach your move to Australia, and can assist with almost every issue:
