:: About us

:: What we can do for you

GLITF Victoria is a voluntary organization. We receive no funds from Government and for our finances we depend entirely on subscriptions and sales of our Guide book ("The GLITF Guide to Applying for Partner Migration"). Our office bearers and our Migration Advisers give their services to members absolutely free.

We cannot, therefore, offer an around-the-clock service such as you might obtain from a lawyer or Migration Agent acting for a fee. But we will help you to help yourself. Come to the Sunday meetings for general information, and to the Monday advice nights if you have need of advice in relation to your own situation. But before asking for advice, please do your homework - read the GLITF guide book and the DIMA Partner booklet which is available online. You drive your application - we guide you along the way!

If you are a MEMBER of GLITF Victoria living in Melbourne and have a really urgent problem you can email GLITF explaining the situation. Your email will be forwarded to one of our Migration Advisers for consideration and reply. We cannot guarantee, however, that you will receive advice outside of meeting times. Advice will not be given over the GLITF phone.

If you are a MEMBER of GLITF Victoria living overseas or living so far from Melbourne that it is impossible for you to attend our Sunday Meetings and/or Monday Advice nights, you may email GLITF if you are seeking particular advice about your own situation. Your email will be forwarded to one of our Migration Advisers for consideration and reply.

Please note that questions of a general nature for which the answers may be found in "The GLITF Guide to Applying for Partner Migration" cannot be answered outside of meeting times.
