“My partner and I were together in Kuala Lumpur for about 2 years before I departed Malaysia for Sydney to start a new life with my partner.
I was desperate to stay together and live in Australia with my partner.
Philip and his team at Specialist Same-Sex Migration helped us every step of the way with their meticulous attention to detail to ensure our Sponsorship and Partner Visa Applications were Refusal Proof.
Two weeks after lodging our applications with the Immigration Department, we received Partner Visa Approval.
We are forever grateful to Philip and his team for their expertise and navigating us to Migration Success, enabling us to live together successfully in Australia.”

“I worked with Specialist Same-Sex Migration in an initial consultation regarding Australian Migration options and strategies for my overseas partner including Partner Migration and a Tourist Visa. Philip and his team were very knowledgeable, professional, prompt and genuinely cared for my situation with my partner. I would only ever consider working with Specialist Same-Sex Migration in the future and would go straight to them for Migration assistance and Migration Success.”
Scott Quine and Wittayachai “Jean” Kanpea
Same-Sex Partners enquiring about Partner Migration Options
“Obtaining a partner visa is a complex business.
It is one of the most complex engagements I have ever had with the government. To make things worse my partner comes from a country where homosexuality is illegal. Even the family of a gay person (male or female) can face persecution. So discretion and confidentiality was a paramount consideration.
Philip and Maria ensured absolutely that confidentiality was kept and also guided us through the complexities with sensitivity and patience. The process was as smooth as it could be and our application was successful.
My partner now lives here in Australia with me. Thank you for all your help!”

As the name suggests, a strategic approach was taken to navigate the sometimes very convoluted process of obtaining permanent visa. I highly recommend engaging Specialist Same-Sex Migration for their services.”
Dr Rayson Tan Executive Officer | Research Ethics, Compliance and Governance at Garvan Institute of Medical Research a leading multi-disciplinary biomedical research institute in Darlinghurst, Sydney.
“When I started my Sponsorship and Partner Visa Applications at Specialist Same-Sex Migration 5 years ago, I was extremely anxious and nervous because I wasn’t sure if my application would achieve Migration Success, especially as someone who is HIV Positive. Philip and the Team at Specialist Same Sex Migration greatly assisted me throughout the process in managing my difficult Sponsorship and Partner Visa Applications that were affected by my highly complex Health issue. After 3 long years of hard work, perseverance and waiting, I finally achieved Migration Success with the grant of Australian Permanent Residence.
Thank you so much for giving me a second chance for setting-up life here in Australia. Since achieving Australian Permanent Residence, I am now studying a Master Degree of Commerce in Economics at Macquarie University while working in both catering and real estate sales.
Migration services in general are costly, however, whether your case is complex like mine or not, I don’t hesitate to recommend Specialist Same Sex Migration with their assurance of Migration Success – ” We know “near enough is never good enough” and we’ve NEVER lost a VISA application!”
