Members with Additional Accreditation

Migration Institute of Australia
Associate Fellows and Fellows

The Institute's tiered membership scheme launched in early 2012 for any member interested in becoming either an Associate Fellow (AFMIA™) or a Fellow (FMIA™) of the MIA.

The scheme is designed to recognise agents' experience, good standing and ethics, enabling career progression to be recognised by clients and colleagues.

The designation of Associate Fellow of the MIA (AFMIA™) is reserved for member agents who meet the specified requirements - including, with some exceptions, the completion of the MIA's Assessment of Competency, the Applied Immigration Assessment and Practice Management course - and hold five years’ standing in the profession; Fellows must have 10 years' experience.

Once admitted, Associate Fellows and Fellows must complete approved Continuing Professional Development (CPD) or other professional activities above and beyond MARA minimums, to maintain their accreditations.

Intakes for AFMIAs and FMIAs will normally occur on an annual basis, subject to levels of interest.

See below for a complete listing of AFMIAs and FMIAs, or search for these designations within the MIA's Find an Agent function.

Accredited Specialists in Immigration Law

The Law Societies of New South Wales, Queensland and South Australia, and the Law Institute of Victoria, operate Specialist Accreditation schemes in several practice areas, including for Immigration Law. These schemes are designed to recognise specialist experience and proficiency and allow the lawyers who meet their requirements to use "Accredited Specialist, Immigration Law" in their official materials and a Specialist Accreditation logo to promote their services.

The Specialist in Immigration Law Accreditation generally requires solicitors to demonstrate five years' experience as a full time practitioner, and three years' experience specialising in immigration law, and to pass an examination.

The following MIA Members are Accredited Specialist in Immigration Law, and can be searched by this designation within the MIA's Find an Agent function.

While the Institute endeavours to maintain an accurate and up to date listing, the nature of the specialist accreditation scheme means that it cannot guarantee this list's accuracy.

All Accredited Specialist Members must confirm their status with the MIA to be listed. Please contact the MIA if you feel there are errors or omissions below. Click to access up to date listings for the individual law societies' rolls for NSW, QLD, SA and VIC.
