Our world today is accelerating towards digitization. All the paperwork hassles are now shifted to computerized data and systems. The same goes for visa applications.
The Australian Government introduced ImmiAccount, a digitized platform for visa application that frees the applicants and agents from experiencing the burdensome paperwork hassles of visa application. If you are applying for migrating in Australia or an agent who facilitates applications for migration in Australia, you need to have an ImmiAccount.
What can you do with an ImmiAccount?
ImmiAccount is a gateway to apply for Australian visas online if you plan to study, migrate or travel to Australia. That means, by creating an ImmiAccount, you can:
Apply for an Australian Visa or Citizenship online
Access online visa services
Track the application progress
Pay application fees
Let’s dive deeper into this!
1. Apply for an Australian Visa or Citizenship online
As mentioned earlier, ImmiAccount is the online portal to the Department of Home Affairs. This is the same where you make your visa applications. It also allows you to submit multiple online applications. Likewise, it is a new self-service tool, and it accepts all online visa and citizenship requests except Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) applications.
2. Access online visa services
As ImmiAccount is a front door to all online visa services, it connects you to My Health declaration, Visa finders, visa entitlement verification online or VEVO and pricing estimator. It also allows you to import an application and attach documents to an online or imported paper application. Meanwhile, you can get access to Legendcom Database from ImmiAccount. With Legendcom, you can access an electronic database of Migration and Citizenship legislation, policy documents, and much more. In short, you can use it effectively to provide the best information to your clients.
3. Track the application progress
With an ImmiAccount, you know the progress of your application. You can choose to receive communication and status alerts by emails from ImmiAccount. Each time the status of your application changes when a final decision is made. This is just one of the time-saving features ImmiAccount gives to make your visa application easy and convenient.
4. Manage applications
Once you create your application, you can save and continue your online application at any time by selecting the “save” located at the bottom of each screen. Also, if by any chance you entered incorrect information in your application, you can easily amend it. Furthermore, you can notify the department of changes in passport details by completing and submitting these forms through it.
5. Pay application fees
ImmiAccount also allows you to submit multiple online applications and pay for these applications at the same time. All payments can be made by credit card in Australian Dollars, or for some visas, PayPal and UnionPay can be used.
