The capital of Victoria, Melbourne is Australia’s second largest city, and one of the most important financial centers in the country and the Asia-Pacific region. Melbourne also has the added distinction of holding the title of “most livable city in the world” for several years running. These attributes attract foreign nationals from all over the world. 
 
 
Businesses in Melbourne span industries including professional, scientific and technical services; financial and insurance services; hospitality; public administration; healthcare; telecommunications; education; entertainment/arts, and retail trade and manufacturing. Fragomen in Melbourne helps individuals, local companies and multinational corporations navigate Australia’s complex immigration laws. Specifically, we help to simplify processes associated with 457 visas, business visitor visa applications, short-stay work visa applications, permanent residence applications under the Employer Nomination Scheme (ENS), and other ad hoc visa category applications.
 
Australia’s immigration compliance regulations are growing more complicated. Revisions to existing laws now hold corporate senior executive officers personally and criminally liable for any breaches of visa work rights under their purview. In addition, businesses bringing foreign nationals into the country on work visas have increased sponsorship obligations, which come with severe penalties for non-compliance. 
 
At Fragomen, we provide strategic guidance to help clients avoid these types of compliance roadblocks altogether. When companies are faced with serious immigration compliance issues, we provide the guidance necessary to minimize the impact of breaches, when possible, and advise on changes to internal policies and processes to avoid the risk of non-compliance in the future. 
 
Our Melbourne office employs a group of hardworking and collegial professionals.  We believe strongly in giving back to our local communities through pro bono and volunteer work. We work with Public Interest Law Clearing House to support refugee or humanitarian-related visa claimants. Our Melbourne team also volunteers their time as a group to help charities and not-for-profits including organisations like Collingwood Children’s Farm and Save the Children Fund.
