Helping change people’s lives for the better is what drives John Young, owner and founder of Immigration Agents Cairns.
John, who has been a migration agent for 29 years, has helped thousands of people across all walks of life make Australia their home.
“I like the satisfaction of getting someone residency, and I love the satisfaction of changing someone’s life,” he said.
His expertise is exceptional. He was formally a Director of the Migration Institute of Australia and an Associate Fellow and former director of the Migration Agents Registration Authority. He was also the Victorian President of the MIA and National Vice President for more than six years.
He moved to Far North Queensland from Melbourne in 2004 and soon after started Immigration Agents Cairns.
“John Young is the real immigration guru in Far North Queensland,” said Ethan Buxton. “My partner and I came to John after tirelessly searching for a migration agent with experience, confidence and an understanding of our complex situation.
“John provided an exceptional level of knowledge regarding our complicated case, and he had a complete understanding of what would be required for a favourable outcome.”
John handles every type of visa and is also highly successful at achieving positive results with the Administrative Appeals Tribunal for those whose visa applications were not successful.
The Immigration Department in Australia makes changes and fine-tunes the regulations at least three times a year to keep up with the demand for overseas workers and family members who want to join their Australian extended family or for the demand for migration.
“There are a lot of changes that have affected people, which is why I make sure I’m constantly up to date with the legislation, and my staff and I continually undergo professional development,” John said. “It’s just a wonderful feeling to help people.”
