1. These Terms and Conditions apply to all Clients who submit an application to be assessed for their eligibility to migrate to New Zealand and Australia. In submitting the eligibility assessment registration form, you therefore agree to be bound by these terms and conditions.

3. You warrant that the information provided in the visa assessment is complete, accurate and truthful and understand that any inaccuracies or omissions could affect our assessment of your eligibility.
4. The visa assessment is based on the information you provide in the Eligibility Assessment questionnaire and on New Zealand and Australian immigration law and policy current at the time of assessment. While we attempt to give an accurate indication as to your ability to meet immigration requirements, the final decision in any immigration application rests firmly with the relevant Government immigration authority and we are therefore not responsible for the outcome of any subsequent immigration application which you may choose to make.
