To deliver on this performance guarantee, Australian Visa Experts has formed an alliance with some of the best independent migration agents in the country, so each and every client gets the best service - with no exceptions!
Our team made it their first goal to recruit the services of some of the best migration agents in Sydney that specialize in one or more of the 4 Visa categories - Business Skills, Skilled Migrant, Sponsored Visas and Student Visas.
Each agent was required to go through a rigorous interview process and was measured against a list of the key skills and expertise that Chris was looking for. They really put the agents through their paces.
Our team questioned each migration agent very carefully about their background in each particular visa area. The agents were asked to show PROOF of the various work they did in their area of expertise. It was a very thorough and time-consuming procedure. But through that laborious process our team have built a harmonious working relationship with some of the best migration agents in Australia.
That's the team of migration experts you need working on your behalf if you want to migrate to Australia.
The only agents that are recruited by the Australian Visa Experts are the ones who meet the flowing strict criteria. ALL AGENTS POSSESS:
- At least 10 years of solid experience in one or more of the 4 visa types with minimum of 100 lodgments in one of the visa types to qualify as an “expert” in that visa category;

- Good work ethics;
- Friendly and courteous;
- Commitment to Australian Visa Experts business model and objectives;

MEET OUR TEAM
Chris Whitelaw has had over 25 years of legal and business experience in the commercial field. He is also an accredited mediator and an expert in alternative dispute resolution.
In 2008 Chris decided to team up another talented lawyer, close friend and businessman Alex Deluchi, to establish a unique visa business that specialises in just 4 types of visas – business skills, skilled migrant, sponsored visas (business and skilled worker) and student visas. Their commitment is to turn this business into the preeminent leader in those visa categories by 2010.
This joint venture was born out of an idea that Chris had when assisting his wife, also a successful business owner, to sponsor skilled workers from overseas. Whilst undertaking this work for her it became crystal clear that the timing was perfect to establish a business focused exclusively on these 4 visa types.
The Australian Government had just announced that business and skilled worker migration was essential to its social and economic future. It also had a very favourable attitude to students as they wanted the right ones to stay in Australia and become permanent residents. It has also made it clear that it would continue to support businesses and employers sponsoring people with the necessary skills if they could not locate such skills within Australia.
Upon closer investigation Chris discovered that many of the applicants for these 4 visa types were coming from countries like the UK, India, Bangladesh, China and South East Asia.
Chris decided that to create such a highly specialised visa business at this time and make it the best in these 4 visa types would be of real benefit to many – to Australia, to Australian business and employers and to overseas people with the right skills and qualifications who would like to make Australia their home.
Chris possesses a thorough knowledge and understanding of peoples’ legal rights and entitlements including the rights of those wishing to apply for one of the 4 visas that Australian Visa Experts specialises in. His key role in Australian Visa Experts is to make sure you get the benefits you deserve and that your chances of getting approved and accepted into Australia are maximised.
Having migrated to Australia from the UK in 1981, Chris fully understands the stress of moving across the globe and starting a new life in a foreign country.
As a lawyer, Chris’ focus on detail and execution is unparalleled. That’s the person you want to be on your side especially when you have to present your “life” and your credentials in a way that will fully meet and satisfy the requirements of the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) who will make the important first decision as to whether or not to grant you with a visa to Australia.
While many migration agents can take your instructions, process your documents and prepare and file your visa application, not many agents understand how to substantially shorten the whole process of getting from “Information-gathering-and-document-collection” stage to “Visa Lodgement” stage.
Chris has implemented a quality assurance system with Australian Visa Experts that guarantees that there will never be delay on AVE’s part in getting your visa application prepared and lodged with DIAC. If there is any delay at all it will be due to reasons beyond AVE’s control. Eliminating the usual reasons for delay (agent caused and/or client caused) is the secret to AVE’s success at being able to lodge 100% correct and compliant visa applications with DIAC faster than anyone else.
If the quality assurance fails and a client suffers delay as a result AVE offers a Money Back Guarantee to compensate the client.
Chris has an impressive background. Here are just some of his highlights:
- Conferred with a Bachelor of Arts Degree by the Australian National University in 1977;
- Conferred with a Bachelor of Law Degree by the Australian National University in 1980;
- Conferred with a Master of Laws degree at the University of Technology Sydney in 2000;
- Accredited as a Mediator since 2000;
- Conducting a robust Legal and Dispute Resolution practice from 2000 – 2009.
Chris is also an ambitious entrepreneur, a Diamond Graduate of Jay Abraham’s and Dr. Marc Dussault’s 2007/08 Exponential Business Building Bootcamps, always looking for better ways to deliver more value to his clients. Chris is currently enrolled in an intensive business program learning cutting-edge skills that he is using to make Australian Visa Experts the leading Visa business in Australia in Business Skills, Skilled Migrant, Employer Sponsored or Student Visas.
Not only that, Chris frequently travels overseas to understand the economy and living conditions of other countries and to conduct personal market research into his target markets to make sure that Australian Visa Experts can deliver the best possible value to every single client no matter what country they come from. Chris ensures that everybody on the Australian Visa Experts team can relate with different cultures, backgrounds and languages in a professional manner.
Chris is a family man with two children. His wife comes from China and runs and manages her own successful business here in Australia.
In his spare time Chris enjoys spending time with his family, reading voraciously, studying Mandarin Chinese, playing guitar and being engrossed by business, the Internet and entrepreneurship.
