Cathrine and Owen charge a fee for service, just like any other professional such as an Accountant or Solicitor and do not provide free advice, nor offer a ‘no visa, no fee’ arrangement.

They are totally ethical and upfront about their charging structure:

    * They charge a fair price that represents excellent value for money
    * Many of their services have a fixed fee
    * There are no hidden costs
    * Fees charged for the preparation of visas are within average fees charged by registered migration agents as listed on the MARA and IAA websites.

Clients’ immigration matters are too important to risk cutting corners. Cathrine and Owen do not claim to be the cheapest but they do provide the best service and quality possible, in a highly professional manner.

When a client engages Cathrine and Owen's services, there's no danger of being passed down to a junior member of staff, without the relevant experience or knowledge. Clients speak directly to Cathrine and Owen, who will deal personally with all their immigration matters from a wealth of experience and knowledge.

Cathrine and Owen cannot guarantee the successful outcome of any visa application, as this is in the hands of the immigration authorities. However, they will provide a frank and honest professional opinion about a client’s ability to meet the visa and migration requirements. They will not take on a client’s case if it does not have merit.

Cathrine and Owen can be contacted through the Australian office on +61 (0)3 9005 6210, or through the UK office on +44 (0)20 3239 5940 or email  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

I have no hesitation in recommending Cathrine Burnett and Suzie Warren to assist in my application for Contributory Parent 143 Visa to Perth. Visa granted April 2010.

Their help on all levels was encouraging, friendly and professional at all times to someone making such a big move late in life.

This was my second attempt at migration to Australia after an aborted do-it-myself application some years ago. I wouldn't hesitate to use the service again. It makes sense to have help with any wrinkles that may come up from time to time.

Cathrine Burnett is assisting my partner and i in immigrating to Australia under General Skilled Sponsored category. She has been very patient with all our questions. She always keeps us updated and provides us with all the options and information we need. She also makes suggestions that would help increase our chances of getting through.

She has always been very prompt with replying to emails or calling back to clarify some point. I have heard of bad experiences with other agents who try everything possible to take you for a ride.... Cathrine has never done that and is a very honest person.

I would definitely recommend her to anyone who is looking to immigrate to Australia or any of the other countries that she provides assistance for.

Migration matters (Cathine Burnett and Suzie Warren) assisted myself and my 2 daughters to obtain our offshore 309 partner visa. We had been told by other agents that our application would be hard going and unlikely to succeed as my two daughters have a hearing impairment. Cathrine put us at ease and was upfront and honest about the difficulties we may face. She gave us sound advice and helped us to collate all the reports that were needed.

Both Cathrine and Suzie were prompt with their replies and always on hand with reassuring words. They are professional, yet very approachable and friendly. They always kept us up to date with what was happening with our case.

I would highly reccomend Migration Matters to people appying for a visa.

Migration Matters (Cathrine Burnett) assisted myself and my partner with obtaining a General Skilled Visa.

Our case was complex right from the get-go. We had previously been given conflicting information, several agents even told us we were not eligible!!! However, Cathrine Burnett gave us clear advice and offered an action plan of how we could overcome our complexities. She was very knowledgeable about all the migration laws and rules and always had the answers right away for us.

Cathrine worked with us from the beginning, through the skills assessment process, state sponsorship and the visa application.

She was a pleasure to deal with. She was timely in her responses to us and made her self available at all times (sometimes in the middle of the night we called her in Australia in a panic (sorry about that Cathrine)). She always kept us up-to-date with what was going on and was personable, yet very professional. Without her I am 100% sure we would not now be fulfilling our dream and living in Australia right now.

I can highly recommend Migration Matters and especially Cathrine Burnett.
