Oh my god Mary Anne… I am sooooo excited. Thank you so much for all your help with our partner visa!!! You made me feel confident and took away my worries, also helped explain each stage of the process. You are very professional but easy going in day to day emails. The personal touch is a lot nicer than feeling you’re talking to a machine. You are a life saver as far as we are concerned! Thank you for putting up with my 100s of questions and always being so good to reply straight away. We appreciate all your help and would recommend you to everyone we know.
“Maryanne – thank for all your help with our 457 application. I am extremely excited to have been given the opportunity. Your expertise has been invaluable in the process. To have the visa granted in such a short time (just over one week) has been a dream come true for us. Without your positive outlook on the whole application, I’m not sure my sponsor would have felt it was even possible. Thanks so much.”
“A HUGE HUGE thanks to Ian Lattimore for all his hard work and support in helping us get our PR! We are delighted that we get to stay in this beautiful country.”
Mike and Kirsten
“We would like to thank you and True Blue for all Your assistance in making our dreams come. It was the most amazing moment when Vic called Jo on Friday morning to inform that we had been granted our visa. Vic O’Neill has been fantastic. She has remained positive, polite and professional from the outset. She has always advised and responded promptly and demonstrated a personable approach, with a great sense of humour. She is a credit to you and your company.”
Jo and Tom
“Very pleased I chose to go with True Blue Migration for my Permanent Residency. Maryanne was wonderful, helping me and my employer with my RSMS. I would recommend using True Blue Migration, their knowledge and understanding of the system is wonderful and took all the stress out of the process. Thank you for everything!”
“I just wanted to say how thrilled I am that I have my spouse visa and all thanks to True Blue and the hard work from Ian. At all times you kept in touch with me, answering my many questions. You have been brilliant and thankfully the whole process only took four months, so a speedy service too. Thanks again.”
Appointing True Blue Migration to act as our migration agents has meant that we have had expert advice and guidance throughout the, often complicated and stressful, process of applying for visas and honesty believe that it’s the best money we have ever spent! The best part was having the peace of mind that an expert was dealing with our visa process which took much of the worry and stress out of it for us. Having the “no visa no fee” pledge also gave us peace of mind that having been taken on as clients we had a good chance of successfully obtaining a visa!
Anna and Menno
Maryanne. You never let me down thru this journey. You and the True Blue Migration team have been so wonderful. All of my queries was answered. A wonderful journey to land down under because of you and your team. I will recommend your team 2 thumbs up.
Maryanne – thank-you so much for letting me know about my grant letter. My friend Sarah will be contacting True Blue shortly to start her residency process. My sincere thanks to you for all that you have done for me, I shall always be grateful.
My heartfelt thanks again. I’m still over the moon thinking back the whole process. I actually expect our visas some time next week or later than that, but it ended up being granted so quick. When I looked at your website the first time and reviewed some comments about you over the internet, I thought “I got to go with these people because they look so fantastic”. And you have really been so. I would definitely recommend True Blue to my friends and colleagues if someone has intention to migrate to Australia.
The best part was the fact that everything was taken care of. I provided the information asked of me by Ian and he took care of the rest. The speed of the application was faster than I ever imagined and I would recommend True Blue Migration to anyone thinking of applying for a 457 Visa. I bombarded Ian with every question I could think of and he answered every one in great detail. I want to thank Ian for his hard work and will definitely be returning to True Blue Migration for my PR if I decide to stay on.
Thank You Ian!! I can’t even begin to tell u what this means and a heartfelt thanks to you and True Blue. I’ll drop u a line later when i am a bit less emotional (not common for me to have tears in my eyes!!)
I am really happy with the service we obtained and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend True Blue to anyone thinking of making the same decision. The information you are presented with regarding the evidence you need to provide is clear and easy to understand. I like the way all the documentation is gathered right at the beginning of the process; this makes it much less stressful later on.
Hello Ian! That was a great day today or still is. We knocked off jobs early today went into the city and celebrated. We would like to thanks you for the great job you did! Especially for your quick replies to all our emails, probably sometimes nerve wrecking!! I guess without your help we wouldn´t have had the persistence to keep going throughout the long application process. It was worth any dollar to take you on and I will recommend you to anyone who also wants to take the step.
Alex and Dorothee
I am very excited about my new life down under. I fly out to Perth on 27th July 2013. My Australian relatives are ready and waiting my arrival. In the meantime I have been organising my UK property for lettings and currently working my resignation. I cannot wait to finish and begin a new chapter in my life all thanks to True Blue!
Maryanne proved very knowledgeable and helpful in the whole process. Raina and I were very happy with the service and we would be more than happy to recommend Maryanne as an agent. What I believe True Blue offers (and have the edge compared to others I researched) was the money back guarantee. This for me showed strong belief in what they do and “puts their money where there mouth is”.
Rob and Raina
My family and I want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping us with our visas. It was such a pleasrue to work with you. We will surely recommend you to everyone who wants to emigration for you are always helpful, friendly, giving advise and able to answer our questions.
The Pelser family
Visa granted today!! We are so happy!!A big thank you to True Blue and especially to Maryanne – she is a fantastic agent. She was always been there to help us and support us. Great professional. Thank you again for your service.
Philippe and family
Hello True Blue team! Ben and I were granted our PR in April followed very closely by the arrival of our daughter Charlotte Jane. Needless to say it’s been busy busy busy since then. Thank you again for all your hard work to get the 457 sorted – without that who knows where in the world we would have ended up!
Jenny, Ben & baby Charlotte
Got my passport back and it looks even better now, with the Roo sticker in it! I’m starting a new life and I’ve got so many plans for the future.. our bright and sunny future! Thank you so much for all your help and kind words. Thanks for being there for us… You are fantastic! Thank you!
It has been a stress free experience! People on forums doing it themselves often seem ready to tear their hair out. Maryanne was very friendly, down to earth and knowlegable. I am also very grateful for the ongoing support since our visa was granted.
The contract was simple and easy to understand. All emails and telephone calls were responded to promptly and efficiently and the knowledge of the agents made the process simple to obtain a visa.
It was great not having to think about what documents we required for each application and not having to worry about what forms to complete. True Blue told us exactly what documents we required. We are very happy – and even happier that we got PR after my wife’s (girlfriend at the time) visa was refused (sponsored visa). It was all worth it and we are both looking forward to a great future in Australia.
The best part about working with True Blue Migration is their efficiency and knowledge of the visa programme. I would’ve found it very difficult to do this on my own, especially at the rate the rules change. Ian was very helpful, and willing to answer my questions.
Maryanne has been absolutely fantastic and has guided me through with fabulous patience. All through, the responses have been immediate, very realistic and candid. She has always been there when I have had a query and the amount of planning she did to make best use of process lags & waiting periods has been awesome. Without her advice, I doubt I could have gone through the process so quickly & smoothly. In summary, a big big THANK YOU to Maryanne and your entire team from my family & me 🙂
Paushali and Rana
Thank you, Lucy and I are very excited and can’t wait to make the move to Australia. We were very happy with the service. From the initial enquiry, to the initial phone call from True Blue to the acceptance to the congratulations card we received in the post – True Blue offer a professional service with a personal touch! True Blue made us feel at easy about the process from day one. We have our flights booked and we head out to Perth in May. All the best and thanks again for helping us make our dreams come true.
Rob and Lucy
Ian was great with handling my application. Nothing seemed too much trouble. I was planning on leaving the country then had a change of circumstances so needed to stay in Australia and submit my application to go onto a bridging visa asap. I was getting pretty stressed, thinking it couldn’t be done, but Ian sorted it all out for me very quickly and I went onto my bridging visa a few days later. He was also great with any questions I had when filling in the application forms. He also got me work rights due to change in the conditions on bridging visa A-this was also dealt with really quickly and I wouldn’t have known about this if it was for True Blue Migration! He provided us with an excellent service throughout!
I feel like I have known you all personally, especially Maryanne because of the way in which you have conducted yourselves both professionally and personally. You have done exactly what you said you would from the beginning with integrity and professionalism, which in turn gave us all confidence it would happen. Maryanne is someone I’ll probably never forget as she helped make our life changing decision a reality and we are looking forward to using her/you when we arrive in Oz and we lodge my mother-in-laws application.
I would like to thank True Blue Migration for making my dream of moving to Australia come true. It’s been a long journey but having Maryanne by my side, everything just fell into place. Thank you so much Maryanne for all the support, tireless efforts, advice, always responding promptly. Am so happy with your services and wouldn’t hesitate recommending you to anyone planning on moving to Oz.
Very happy with using you to help with visa. 8 out of 10. Best part using True Blue Migration was not having to decipher the Aus Govt migration rules and changes. Ian was very helpful indeed. Our application kept hitting brick walls (that’s how it felt) and he put up with my worrying very well! Thanks very much to Ian and the rest of your team for helping us realise our dream!
I was super stressed out when it came time to apply for my 457 visa. Not only did I have to get all my personal paper work together, I was left to organise all the company’s part of the sponsorship as well. I was completely unqualified for that, to say the least. Maryanne was so helpful and quick to reply with any silly or confused question I had and basically held my hand through the whole experience. Thank you so much, Maryanne, for all your help and patience and making my life as stress-free as ever!
The whole process went very smoothly. I certainly could not have got through the Engineers Australia skills assessment without Maryanne’s help and guidance. Getting an email response from Maryanne was very important. I would send an email on one day and always got a response when I woke up the next day, even if it was just to acknowledge my email or to tell me that everything was okay.
The best part about working with True Blue is that I never felt for once that I am dealing with someone who is so far away. I always felt that you guys were just an email away and I never had to send a reminder for anything to my agent. No matter how long my emails or how repetitive my questions were, Maryanne always answered them with patience and kindness. I wish her all the best. I also want to thank Joy because in 2010 when I was hopeless and clueless she was the one who told me to wait and don’t lose hope.
Nadia and family
“Ian was very thorough and made the whole process of achieving Permanent Residency straightforward. He was informative about what I needed to do and when I needed to do it. I rate my experience 9 out of 10 as you provided what you said you would.”
Our visa was processed and approved quickly and Ian Lattimore was very supportive and helpful. He was always quick to respond to our questions.
The process was well-explained at the outset and I was immediately confident that the process would be well-managed. Received the appropriate level of information and direction throughout the data collection. The best part was having the support of knowledgeable professional staff who understand the process and can manage the key parts of the application. Maryanne always provided a prompt reply to my queries and I was reassured that the application was being completed to a high standard throughout.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Ian for getting us our visa, when so many other immigration agents in the UK said it would not be possible! We’re now in the process of selling our house and making arrangements for the big move. We will forever be grateful to Ian and True Blue for giving us the opportunity of a life time and when we sit in our garden in Adelaide and have our first BBQ, the first toast will be to Ian and True Blue! Thank you all once again 🙂
I am delighted to get my PR, and would be very happy to give you feedback. I was directed at every stage which took the stress away from my side. I was always kept informed of the status of my application and all the time frames were always as quoted from Maryanne. Maryanne was a pleasure to deal with always friendly and supportive. I really liked her personal approach and she never minded me ringing for updates and always answered any questions that I had. I had tried a few other agencies before I went with True Blue but felt that you guys understood what I wanted where the others weren’t listening but were telling me to stay with my employer nominated visa. I will continue to spread the good word to my Irish friends so hopefully you will get some more business!
A big thank you to all of you at True Blue Migration Services, we couldn’t have done it without your help. Very quick response to any queries that we had. A big thanks to Maryanne for all that you done for us. All very excited and can’t wait to move down under. We would recommend True Blue to anyone wanting help to emigrate.
The Hammond family
We couldn’t have picked a better migration agent than “True Blue” as everything was explained in simple terms and any questions/concerns were always addresses swiftly. Without the help of Maryanne and True Blue Migration we’d still be in the UK but as it is we are living our life to the full in Oz.
Nigel and Yvonne
When we decided to emigrate it was difficult to choose an agent. We contacted a few and decided to for with True Blue because they were based in Aus and replied to us quickly (we had a time restriction). We were very stressed about this whole thing but Maryanne made it look easy! Very professional, efficient and helpful, they guided us through the process. Even after we arrived in Aus we still contacted them and they had no problem giving us advice. We made the right decision and can really recommend True Blue.
Francois and family
Very impressed with True Blue Migration. Thanks for all the help and top quality advice you gave in helping us with our successful application for an Australian permanent residency visa. Would recommend you to anyone who is considering moving to Australia.
I would like to thank my agent Victoria O’Neill for all her assistance in helping my family and myself obtain permanent residency in Australia. I would like to express our most sincere appreciation. We are very happy with the outcome.
Thank you so much for helping us in getting this visa Maryanne, you have been absolutely fantastic all throughout last two months. We are glad that we chose true blue migration over all the other agents in Perth (who could not have been so personally involved in our case as you did). We also appreciate your putting up with our numerous emails and getting back with prompt replies. You have been awesome, I would definitely recommend true blue migration to everyone I know.
Amanda and Gary
Vic and True Blue… we would like to say a huge thanks to everyone involved in helping us get our PR visa, especially to you, Vic, for all your hard work during those stressful days! We have our one-way flights booked and we can’t wait. We are truly thankful to True Blue who has helped us to achieve our dream of a happy life in a beautiful country.
Lea and Ozzie
We just want to take this opportunity to thank Ian Lattimore for all of his help. His efficiency and willingness to answer our constant emails was appreciated and made us much more confident in receiving a successful outcome than if we had attempted this on our own. His knowledge and insights were invaluable and his ability to simplify certain processes that needed further explanation helped us to fast track a very long process. Once again, thank you Ian for all of your support and for your dedication to your clients. I look forward to recommending you to our friends and family.
Olivia and Chris
Thanks for all the great service Trueblue has provided. Once I got in touch with you everything seemed so easy and I felt very well looked after right from your very first response to my email to the end of the process and the grant of the visa. The process couldn’t have been any smoother. Ian handled all our requests very professionally and I can only recommend your company to anyone who like me couldn’t see the end of the tunnel through Australian migration laws.
Everything was handled in a timely way via e-mail, all my queries were responded to and a solid experience of the visa application requirements was evident throughout the application process. I received straightforward, clear and attentive guidance throughout the process. Ian provided a focused and personalised service to facilitate the visa acquisition. Thank you.
Great service! I have dealt with Mr Ian Lattimore and he was there every time I had any question or asked for advice. If I did not have such guidance with regards to procedures and required documentation the processing time would be much longer. Thank you Ian and Trueblue.
“Esther was my calming reassurance. Without an agent I would have definitely crumbled under the stress. Esther kept me on track and liaised with myself and employer in all parts of my 457 visa. She was perfect at combing the application for corrections or adjustments and providing this feedback. My plan is to transition to PR and then become a citizen. I always came here with the intention of relocating.”
“I failed my first skills assessment attempt and was beginning to lose hope until I started working with True Blue Migration. Then everything started running a lot smoother. I was searching online for a migration agent specialised in skills assessments and True Blue Migration was the one that attracted me the most, probably because of so many good reviews, free initial consultation (unlike many other migration agents) and ‘no visa no fee’ guarantee. Having a migration agent gave me more confidence and made me feel a lot better throughout the whole process. Second, having guidance during preparation of the skills assessment was paramount.”
“I chose True Blue Migration due to recommendations from a few friends and saw that people had liked them on my Facebook. I applied for a 457 visa and can say that 100%, I could not have done it without them. When my visa was granted, it was a weight off my shoulders and there was a big party to celebrate.”
“I applied for a skilled visa. It was challenging to start application process from Middle East, however True Blue Migration always had the answer. I initially chose to approach two agencies but True Blue were the first to respond and also the most informative and reassuring at time due to my unusual circumstances. I had heard of others ‘going it alone’ but always seemed to be hassled with one process or another. I just sat back basically and let the True Blue guide me along. I can’t describe how it felt when my permanent residency was granted. Both my husband and I were ecstatic – it meant we could forge ahead with our plans. My agent Maryanne Gruar sent me a lovely card and it was a pleasure doing business with her.”
“Having a migration agent was essential… No question about it. If it wasn’t for Maryanne, we probably wouldn’t have been here. It’s been a long process, but we got the our 186 visa and permanent residency, so it was all worth it! Maryanne’s advice has been crucial to us getting the visa. I have already recommended Maryanne to a couple of people.”
“We found the visa process very detailed and stressful at times, especially the amount of evidence needing to be submitted on our limited time scale. However, the support, guidance and encouragement provided by Esther and True Blue was invaluable. We chose True Blue Migration as we had read very positive reviews online about the company, and since our first contact with the company, True Blue has always been contactable, professional and supportive. Other companies we previously contacted were not as organised or as confident with our application timeline. Esther gave us peace of mind that we were submitting the correct information/documentation required, and kept us organised, especially with our time-line!! We were OVER THE MOON when our 189 visa was granted!! Words cant describe how happy and relieved we are. As permanent residents we can finally make a start on our future here together. We would like to say a huge thank you to Esther and all at True Blue for helping to make our dreams come true!”
Jennifer and Kieran
Maryanne, thank you for helping me with my skilled permanent residency visa. You were informative when I had questions, supportive when I had doubts…and patient when I was dragging my heels! I particularly liked that once I was into the process there was one point of contact throughout. You were always quick to respond with any queries I had…no matter how daft they were. That really put my mind at ease. I have been planning this since I was a teenager. It’s basically the start of a really awesome adventure, I can’t wait to get on the plane!
It was scary when applying for 457 visa as I had very little knowledge of what I needed to do, how to apply, the criteria involved and the paperwork needed to go with my application. I tried to research this online but there are no easy ways to find this information from the immigration website. Meeting Nicole was the best decision as my employer and I were given straightforward, honest advice and she didn’t try to hide any information from us. It was amazing to find out that my sponsorship visa was granted. I was able to make future plans in this country and since then I have been able to get a loan to purchase a vehicle. Nicole was professional, knowledgeable, kind and helpful. THANK YOU!
The best part about working with True Blue Migration was that I felt that I could always contact you when I had any questions. I felt that 187 visa application was in professional hands. I was very happy with Ian as my agent. Ian was very professional, helpful and supportive. The whole process of migrating can be stressful, but Ian took a lot of the stress away by assuring me that everything would work out.
I loved having a dedicated person to speak to – thank you Nicole! Every question I had was answered promptly, it was a tricky experience applying from a third world country via the UK but you made is as smooth as possible. As my agent, you was excellent. I now have my 189 skilled visa! Thank you so much, it’s such a relief to know exactly what I’ll be doing with life next. You’ve been a star.
Thanks you so much Esther! I wasn’t even expecting it yet. Thank you again for your services. I will definitely recommend True Blue to everyone I know. It was a pleasure working with you. Two months sounds like record time for skilled visa grant!
Maryanne Gruar has not only taken the stress out of gathering the required documents and certification procedures. She has done what every honest migration agent should do and that is to clarify, inform and assist in every aspect of the whole process, not building up false hopes and high expectations but a very professional view and recommendations focused on the safe side. She has only built my confidence that we did the best we could but she was there when we needed her like a good friend would be. She responded in a quick and professional manner to each and every email. There are very good reasons why the Australian visa regulations are the way they are and everyone will appreciate the work she has done making them understandable. I rate you 10 out of 10!
True Blue Migration – such helpful, informative agents who never talked down to me. I called a few other agencies about my 186 visa and many of them seemed like they simply could not be bothered to listen to, or talk to me, almost as if they thought I was beneath them. True Blue is the polar opposite. Incredibly fast, warm, and professional. Over the course of my visa application, Maryanne was incredibly fast in her responses, pro-active and always explained everything clearly. All while being warm, and professional.
Things were done fast and explained very professionally. Best service ever. Would definitely recommend your company to friends and families. Esther, you’ve been very helpful and patient in guiding us on what we needs to provide for our 457 visa application. You were very responsive and answered all our queries. You were great in giving positive advice on our doubts. You’re awesome!
David and Kaizel
Our experience with true blue was a very happy one, we felt like the agents went out of their way to assist us with all queries and problems. The responses were The best part about working with true blue was the enthusiasm and positivity within the company. Many times during this visa process we both felt like we could just give in and go home, however the encouragement from Maryanne and the team helped us push on. Back in February we initially had a consult with any other migration company however the service at that company was far from adequate and it left us feeling very confused and disheartened. Upon positive recommendations from work colleagues about true blue, and in particular Maryanne, we decided to give true blue a try and it was definitely worth it! Even when I thought I wasn’t going to get my visa and was highly distraught, speaking to Maryanne reassured me that everything would work out and that there was ways in which I could remain in the country.
Holly and Liam
Thank you so much! This is the happiest I have been in years. I will say that best part of working with True Blue was the migration agent for the second visa as well as the first. I felt at ease as I knew Maryanne was across my situation. Maryanne was patient and thorough, often having to explain the same thing repeatedly to different people involved in the process.
I have been very happy with the service True Blue Migration have provided. It would be difficult trying to put together all of the information together myself as there is always a risk that items would be missed. Having a migration agent assist me ensured that all of the information was present and correct. Esther, you have been quick to respond to emails and queries which I have raised and you have been clear with instructions to help me put together the required information to accompany my application. You have been most helpful throughout this whole process. Constant updates each month to keep me posted were most welcome
Nicole was extremely to the point and direct. She was professional and helpful, and resourceful when it came to answering questions. There wasn’t a need to worry about missing out important documents for the visa since everything was done on your behalf. I appreciate your help very much and I will be back to use your service again for the next stage of my visa! Look forward to working with you again!
Before I contacted True Blue Migration I tried to handle my 457 visa application myself but I got very confused by the information I received from the immi.gov.au website and from friends who were on a sponsorship visa. When I contacted True Blue I got fast responses from Joy and she made me realize that I could not apply without their help. The whole process was a lot easier and faster than if I would have tried to do it myself. My agent Ian made the application process easy and made me feel confident about our application by giving me clear guidelines for what me and my employer sponsor needed to do in order to hand in our application.
The process was a lot smoother than I had anticipated with my migration agent Ian managing it. Ian was great to work with, confident and ‘onto it’ throughout the process.
Hey Ian! That is fantastic news. We are both so happy that the visa got granted, it’s the news we’ve been waiting for. We both wanted to say a big thank you for taking on our case and for all your help through the process.
