For Visa Applications

We have the necessary experience and knowledge to assist you.


We act professionally and compassionately and cost effectively.


We take time to know you and your personal circumstances and care about your general well-being.


Some of our lawyers have, themselves, been through the process (as former refugees or sponsors of family members). We know how stressful this is and the need to move things forward as quickly as possible.


Our team is multidisciplinary and multicultural.  We combine different skills and knowledge of different cultures to deliver the best professional outcome.


For business-related visas, OPC has the necessary legal and other professional expertise (e.g. accounting, finance, and business management). For more involved and complex visas, we work closely with external associates to provide you with a better outcome.
