Member of Migration Alliance

Limor is the Principal Senior Registered Migration Agent having been practising as an Australian registered migration agent since 1997. This work is her true passion. She feels very fortunate to have helped so many individuals and businesses secure a visa to Australia and takes great pride in her high success rate, including highly complex matters that the Department of Home Affairs previously refused.

Limor’s expertise lies in her in-depth understanding of Australian migration law, and the care and consideration she gives to every client ensuring the right pathway is pursued and the prospects of success are clear. Her attention to detail in the preparation, lodgement and management of applications has ensured a smooth and successful process for each and every client.

In her formative years of her young working life, she learned the meaning of hard work, the value of self-discipline and responsibility, and how to deal effectively with the diversity of human personalities. Most importantly, she learned the true measure of her own capabilities in business which is reflected in her successful migration practice and the thousands of people she has helped achieve their dreams.

As a mother of 5 beautiful children, she prides herself on her ability to balance her career and personal life with grace, love, candour, determination, good humour and the regular use of negotiation skills.
