AskQuokka has developed two levels of online service for people who wish to apply for an Australian visa. A simple “Ask A Question”, where the user can pay US$25 to receive immigration advice within 24 hours of submission, or a telephone consultation where the user can schedule a time convenient to them via the website. This is best for multiple questions or for more complex cases.
“With the Australian economy continuing to grow, this is a perfect time for people who are considering a new adventure or a new direction in their lives to look into residency in Australia. An independent online survey completed recently by Mortgage Choice, that surveyed 1,002 Australians, 90% of whom were property owners, found 83% were confident that the country’s economy will be strong during 2008. Despite the global credit crunch, this positive sentiment has increased from 2006’s 69%”, said Bijou Gilbert, office manager of AskQuokka
