In 2008 my wife and I decided to immigrate to Australia, from South Africa, to be close to our daughter and her family. We asked Stephen Dickson of Migration Outcomes Australia to guide and help us with this undertaking.

Stephen’s input started while we were in South Africa, helping us with the procedures needed there, with advice and with plans for steps to be taken later in Australia. He also discussed relevant visas and guided us in selecting the most suitable one.

When we arrived in Australia six months later this preliminary work greatly facilitated the application process. During the following months Stephen was continually in contact with us, again advising and facilitating the application. Our visa was granted six months after our application.

Stephen was not only efficient, reliable and very knowledgeable but was also a friend, always happy to listen to our problems, to discuss ideas with us and to keep us well informed. We were very fortunate to have Stephen look after our application.
