Fake Migration Agents Sentenced

DEPT OF HOME AFFAIRS, ABF: Fake migration agents sentenced

Two Sydney women, one a 30-year-old Australian citizen and the other a 32 year old Chinese national with permanent residency, have been sentenced to conditional good behaviour bonds after pleading guilty to multiple offences against the Migration Act.

Australian Border Force (ABF) officers commenced an investigation into the pair in October 2018 after it was reported they were unlawfully providing immigration advice and assistance to large numbers of mainly Chinese nationals.

Investigations revealed that although neither of the women was registered migration agents they had advertised migration assistance and charged a fee whilst not being registered, and provided immigration assistance to at least three travellers who were found to be in possession of fraudulently obtained identity documents.
