DIBP however is targeting students without announcing any measures to curb the fraudsters who may be encouraging and facilitating the applications...'' For a long time Australian Agents have argued with DIBP about how it is possible for overseas agents to practice Australian migration law when they, unlike Australian agents are not registered.  To practice educational consulting within...
