I have just started my case with Etienne, and I am pleased with the level of commitment and professionalism he has shown. He has very detailed knowledge of migration law and processes and takes a keen interest in his clients. Despite having many clients he has been prompt in responding to my emails and has been thorough in explain my best possible way forward.

I would recommend Etienne Hugo to any visa applicant that is looking for conversion from a sub-class 457 visa to a PR visa. Eteinne is knowledgeable and well versed with the legislation and rules to provide helpful answers.

He is very good at explaining matters in an easy to understand manner and has responded very quickly whenever I've needed help. Definitely an advisor that I would recommend to anyone!

Got an appointment for a Skype conference with Etienne straight away on the same day as urgency was given from my side. Very well organised and punctual. Etienne convinced with factual knowledge. I learned more from him within 1 hour than in 8 months with my previous agent. Highly recommended.
