Down Under Visa


Down Under Visa are Australian Registered Migration Agents (RMA’s) based in Manila Philippines. Down Under Visa, led by Registered Migration Agent Jeff Harvie (MARN 0959797), specialise in helping Australian Filipina couples get together in Australia.

We make the Australian visa minefield something you don’t need to be scared of. We understand Australian Migration Law, and we know the nuts and bolts of how to present a strong case to the Department of Home Affairs and the Australian Embassy.

We also understand Filipino culture, because we live here and because Jeff and his Filipina wife Mila have been married for 20 years! So they are an Australian Filipina couple just like you, and understand everything that you’re going through! Jeff has had personal dealings with the Philippines since the 1990’s, and has lived here with his family for 14 years now (2024). No one is better equipped to help you to make your dreams come true that Jeff and Mila and the team at Down Under Visa.
