ANUSA Legal Service Migration & Visa Advice
MARA Code of Conduct.
If you need help with skilled migration, the temporary graduate visa or other long term visas we provide a Migration Workshop which is the best place to start. We ask that students first attend the Migration Workshop before making a booking, if the Migration Workshop is running. Contact our office for further details.
You must be a current student at ANU to attend a migration workshop.
ANUSA has been providing legal services to ANU students for over a decade and a half.
