Is it safe to apply for a Visa through an Immigration Agency online? A friend asked my opinion regarding this matter since she was required to pay a considerable amount for the processing of her employment VISA. She already passed the online skills assessment and she’s already at the last step of the processing. She’s afraid she might be scammed ! I just told her to search the internet for reviews and testimonies.It is the only way to know if the agency is bogus or not.
