The Migration Institute of Australia (MIA) advised the people applying for skilled and student visas to seek the help of registered migration agents. In the wake of fraudulent practices the institute issued an advisory to prospective migrants. 

MIA national president Angela Julian-Armitage said that ‘No level or form of immigration fraud is acceptable and any professional who fraudulently helps a migrant acquire a visa should be punished to the full extent of the law,’

She added that no level of fraudulent practices is acceptable or tolerable. Migration Institute of Australia has two codes of conducts, one set by the Australia Government and by the institutes. All the registered migration agents must adhere to the regulations and comply with the professional association. 

The recent media reports highlighted the fraudulent practices related to student visas and Australia Skilled Migration program 457, the popular program which grants rights to people to live and work in Australia for four years. 

Investigation report revealed that 132 cases of fraud and corruption in the department of Australia Immigration had been brought notice to The Australian Commission for Law Enforcement Integrity (ACLEI). It was claimed that 4000 fake applications under sponsorship programs are notified for non-existent jobs; in such cases, none of them are punished.
