The Migration Institute of Australia (MIA) is the peak body for Australian migration advice professionals.
The Institute advocates on behalf of its more than 2000 Registered Migration Agent (RMA) Members through regular Government liaison meetings and public submissions to parliamentary committees and discussion papers.
The MIA administers a comprehensive Continuing Professional Development (CPD) training program, designed to promote high standards of excellence in education within the migration advice profession and in accordance with the statutory requirements for Agents, as governed by the Office of the Migration Agents Registration Authority (OMARA). MIA CPDs are open to all RMAs, with Member Agents receiving substantial discounts.
Through the MIA’s Professional Support, Advocacy and Membership Services divisions, Members access a wealth of industry experience on matters of legislative and regulatory contention and receive invaluable help in dealing with Government departments and tribunals, benefiting from a host of specialised offers and services.
Members comply with the MIA’s Code of Professional Ethics and Practice for the Australian Migration Advice Profession and the companion Code of Ethics, which together set the standards of behaviour for the profession. In addition, MIA Members comply with the Code of Conduct compulsory for all RMAs.
Our Vision is for a society in which migration is valued and the professionalism of MIA migration advisers is recognised by all stakeholders.
