Removal of unrestricted legal practitioners from the Office of the Migration Agents Registration Authority (OMARA) regulatory scheme

The Migration Amendment (Regulation of Migration Agents) Act 2020 will come into effect on 22 March 2021.

The new legislation will amend the Migration Act 1958 to enable unrestricted legal practising certificate (ULPC) holders to give immigration assistance in the course of legal practice, which will remove dual regulation of ULPC holders.

The ULPC holders who are also registered migration agents will be removed from the Register of Migration Agents by the OMARA on 22 March 2021.
