Criminal Convictions and Visas

Having a criminal conviction whether that being from abroad in past criminal convictions or in Australia may be detrimental to your application. However, here at Direct Migration Experts we know how to address it in the correct manner. The character requirements are set out in the Australian Migration Act 1958. You must meet the character requirements if you are applying for an Australian visa.
