Who is Karl Konrad?
Karl Konrad has, over the span of nearly two decades, developed a reputation for being the guy to go to if you wanted accurate, non-meandering advice. Being armed with no more a simple assessment form filled with some key questions on your situation, Karl will form an actionable game plan in a mere thirty minutes. Karl also does not discuss only what you think your visa pathway is. He assesses all of your pathways and together, you choose the best fit(s).
How? Because Karl has real experience and he knows that for any business to thrive, it’s services have to be of the standard that makes people come back. It’s not easy, it’s not like buying a muffin. Migration regulations are as they are, not everyone is going to get an answer that they want, but they are going to get the truth. Once clients understand this, they come back because they know they aren’t being pushed around for a sale, they know they can trust the advice they are being given. There’s a softer reason that drives him as well. In all the years of his work he has helped people move from student or work visas, to partner visas and parent visas. He’s met client’s families and friends. Eventually it does become a little bit personal. Continue reading “Karl Konrad: Founder of Australian Immigration Law Services”

It is no surprise that the Chinese government have squeezed in a few new regulations in vain effort to staunch this worrying outflow. Continue reading “China’s Growing Trillion Sized Problem”

Divya Tyagi is from Uttar Pradesh, India. She’s one of our favourite success stories.
We Skype because she is in Tasmania. She picks up the call with a smile and I can tell she’s a little nervous. Still, it doesn’t take longer than the snap of your fingers for her to warm up, and our call, which I had expected to last no longer than 20 minutes, ran well past 90.
