Need An Immigration Lawyer?
Nilesh Nandan | Principal Immigration Advisor
Hi! I’m Nilesh Nandan. I help people like you every day with Immigration lodgements and appeals.
At MyVisa® I am one of two (2) expert immigration advisors that can help you make better immigration decisions.
We provide immigration assistance in accordance with section 276 of the Migration Act 1958. Advisor Representatives of MyVisa® are registered migration agents. Call us if you need professional immigration assistance.
“I just have one question for an immigration lawyer..”
Every day, I get calls from people wanting to ask me just ONE question. It’s not useful to respond to this single question because this caller almost always asks me the WRONG question. If you take an answer to question from any expert out of context, you may well end up completely off-track. ….and you will jeopardise all the time and effort you have already invested toward your desired immigration outcome. Don’t risk everything you’ve achieved until now by presuming that you know the RIGHT single question to ask. Almost every one of my callers each week (I have hundreds) will ask me the WRONG question. Make an appointment to discuss your circumstances properly with me and I’ll help you ask me the RIGHT questions, to which I have practical accurate answers.
Isn’t is possible that you don’t know what you don’t know? Take a look around you. Most successful people will try to get an expert on their side where possible. It’s possible for you – at MyVisa® we offer this expertise in Immigration.
“Are you a lawyer?”
Yes, I am a lawyer. “Australian lawyer” is defined in the Legal Profession Act 2004 as a person who is admitted to legal practice under that Act. I was admitted as a solicitor to the High Court of Australia in 1993, as well as several Australian states and territories. I’ve trained as an Immigration Lawyer in Australia. I’ve also had the fortune of working with and being mentored by some of the best immigration lawyers in Australia. I continue to learn from my colleagues each day.
At MyVisa® I am employed as Principal Immigration Advisor to provide immigration services and assistance to you under the Migration Act. We operate as a specialist, quality-assured, Australian Immigration practice, not as a legal practice. This makes it easier for me to deliver more services in more locations, more efficiently. Call me to discuss how our practice can help you.
“Can you help me with an appeal?”
Yes. I’ve been helping visa applicants and sponsors appeal difficult immigration decisions for the last 15 years. I see a lot of unique cases where the immigration decision has not been favourable. I’ve been asked to look at thousands of visa refusals and visa cancellations, and I’ve been requested to share my thoughts on how best to respond.
Have you wasted too much time already, worrying about how best to get started? Do you need someone who has done a lot of “your type of case” before? You are likely to be wasting your time if you settle with a so-called expert or senior lawyer if that person hasn’t in fact dealt with a case “like yours” ever before. I’ve not dealt with every visa scenario but I’ve seen a lot of cases each day for the last fifteen (15) years of professional practice. I’ll share with you relevant war-stories when we talk. Call me.
Unsure what to do next? You are not alone! The Immigration website if full of generic information that is engineered to serve the Immigration Department, not your own best interests. You need someone who will watch your back and alert you to the risks around the corner. That’s where I can help.
What will be the consequences for you if your application is delayed, or your visa is refused, or your visa is cancelled?
Call me today to discuss your next immigration move.
-I’ll explain how your Immigration journey could be made easier.
-I’ll help you to respond more effectively to Immigration Department requests.
-I’ll explain the best pathway to follow to get the visa outcome you so strongly desire.
I can’t help everybody, but I guarantee that you’ll get the support to deal proactively and confidently with the Immigration Department, whatever your circumstances.

Principal Immigration Advisor | MyVisa®
Note: We are NOT the Department of Immigration (DIBP). We are independent visa experts.
Where can I get free Migration Agent Consultation?
We don’t provide free services, except in limited circumstances.
For free visa advice, you can visit www.immi.gov.au or call them at 131881 – If you need my help and experience in dealing with the DIBP (Immigration), then please contact my office to arrange a paid consult with me.
I simply offer to listen carefully. I’ll get to understand your circumstances and then I’ll advise you on what steps to take next.
Your next steps are the most important you could be making in your immigration journey.
If you are a sponsor, or visa applicant, or a concerned friend or partner, book a consult (and pay for accurate advice) to help you make sure you are on track.
If you have already received advice from an Immigration Lawyer or another immigration expert, then the chances are you have been advised properly already. If you have any doubts about the advice you have received, try me. The cost of the consultation is a small price to pay for “piece of mind” and a good night’s sleep.
Visa Refusal Notice Or Visa Cancellation Notice?
If your visa has been refused or cancelled, I can help you understand the reasons why the refusal or cancellation occurred, in simple terms. (We also have a team of multilingual staff which may make things a little easier).
I can help you confirm the options you have and I’ll help you decide the best way forward. What can be done to fix difficult situations depends on how well you and I communicate, share information, and the level of trust we have in each other.
If you are worried that your visa application is likely to be refused, I could be useful to get things back on track, before the refusal decision is made.
I have many clients who dig themselves deeper and deeper into holes when trying to sort things out themselves. Get good advice early.
I specialise in understanding the immigration rules (immigration laws, regulations and case law precedents) affecting your case, not just the internal policies that an Immigration Case Officer at the Department of Immigration might apply.
There can be a very big difference between what the law says on the one hand, and the policy and methodology used by an Immigration Case Officer to decide your case, on the other hand. This difference is the gap you will need to plug and we’ll work on this together.
Over the last fifteen years I have seen many cases (almost daily) where decisions are made contrary to law. I can scrutinise the difference between the good and bad decisions of Immigration. I read thousands of decisions. That’s my job.
I can help you troubleshoot cases where Immigration has applied the wrong policy or methodology, resulting in an incorrect or unlawful refusal or cancellation.
Every month, hundreds of visa applications are refused inappropriately. Just look at the approvals received every month after the same “refused visa application” or “cancelled visa application” is either appealed successfully by us, or re-lodged with our own submissions.
Get some advice quickly from an Immigration Advisor like me that specialises in refusals and cancellations – it might be possible to avoid a visa refusal or visa cancellation, if you act fast.
A visa refusal or visa cancellation can be stressful and costly. Strict deadlines apply during which you must appeal the refusal or cancellation. Refusal decisions also limit significantly further lodgement options.
So, if you have been refused, let’s discuss without delay, how to make the most of your situation.
