Supporting my son

My son is currently on remand waiting trial. We have had a really tricky time over the last year learning about some of the things that he has been doing, but we want to make sure that we support him through the trial so that he can get a fair process. Having family on your side can help the prisoners to have an easier time at trial and can often help the lawyers to provide the strongest possible defence in court. This blog explains how family members can help to make sure that legal process goes smoothly and that the lawyers get all of the resources that they need.

Post Landing Services You Can Get From Your Migration Agent


Are you thinking of travelling to a new country for an extended period of time? You may be concentrating on the travelling tickets, work permits and passing the immigration department tests so that you can travel. Nevertheless, what happens upon landing in your destination? There are essential services that you need for your comfort and safety before you go about your activities. Thankfully, you can work with a migration agency that offers post-landing services that come into act the moment you arrive at your destination. For first-time travellers, the following are some of the post-landing services you can get from your migration agent:

Accommodation Arrangement

You wouldn't want to get to a new place and have to go around looking for a place to stay. There is a high risk of ending up in a place that wasn't within your budget and draining your cash reserves. With a migration agent, you can be afforded temporary accommodation at low rates for a certain period within which you can find a suitable place for your permanent accommodation. The agent can also assist you to find a place to stay permanently based on past references and feedback received from clients that they have served before.

Airport Pickup

Imagine the moment you arrive at your destination and have to take a taxi or alternative public transport in an unfamiliar destination. The fear and inconvenience that come with asking for directions all the time are not worth the hassle. Thankfully, a migration agent can arrange airport pick up where you will be taken to your preferred location or pre-arranged temporary residence. This is also good for your safety because you will conveniently avoid wandering into unsafe streets or locations.

Opening a Bank Account

Opening a bank account in another country can be a tedious process. A migration agent can help you with the documentation process, as banks require you to present personal information and documents like a passport, identity card, driver's license or occupational payslip. They can help you get an apostilles stamp, which is an internationally recognised mark ascertaining your identity. This process can take a while, but your migration agent can help you through most of the stages as you go about your other activities.

Medical Insurance

Your migration agent can also connect you with credible policy issuers to provide you with a medical cover in case you fall ill in your new destination. This will help you avoid hefty medical bills.

In brief, working with migration agents goes a long a way in making you feel comfortable in a new country..
