CASE STUDY

September 14, 2016

A busy migration agent was lodging an application on behalf of one of his clients, who was desperate to get into Australia.

Swamped with work, the agent got his paperwork mixed up and mistakenly lodged an incorrect visa application on behalf of the client.

In order for the client to remain in Australia, they had to start the process anew and submit the correct visa application. This forced the client to leave the country briefly to activate the new visa.

In a more fortunate turn of events, the migration agent was covered by his ProfessionaI Indemnity policy, which covered the almost $10,000 that was paid to the client to cover the cost of his flights, and to cover the cost of the new visa application (excluding the retainer fee).
