I would highly recommend ONE derland Consulting service to anyone. We recently used their service to extend my mum’s stay in Australia because of Covid-19.

With only less than 4weeks before my mum’s visa about to expire, Indah & Musria handled the case extremely well!

Indah was very confident in getting the extension stay for my mum, where other agency said the success of this application is very low considering my mum’s case. This was the main reason we went with ONE derland.

Hector Teran

Hard to find the words to express my gratitude to the team at One derland Consulting.

My mother’s visitor visa had been denied as our country of origin (Venezuela) is at the moment under a major political turmoil and is not uncommon for Venezuelan nationals to overstay or apply for protection.

My mother only wanted to come and visit, to meet her granddaughters for the first time and to see me, as it has been 10 years since we saw each other last.

The team at ONE derland put a very compelling case together and help us obtain my mother’s visitor’s visa.

Thank you so much for all the effort!
