New Philippines Office Brings a Real Alternative to Philippines Immigration Market

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - June 10, 2010) - World leading visa company Global Visas has opened a new office in the Philippines, bringing a real professional alternative to the under-trained and unregulated local Philippines immigration agents. The opening of the new office provides a way for local people to get access to professional advice and a world-leading authority on immigration law. Thus locals wishing to move to Canada, Australia, or the UK will have access to world-class immigration support services.

The Philippines is home to many of the world's hardest working and most highly skilled workers, making the Pacific island group one of the most important sources of labour for the rest of the world. Countries like the UK, Canada, and Australia have profited from Filipino skills, and continue to seek them. The Philippines is the world's largest immigration market apart from Nigeria, so the new office is well placed to service the requirements of the Philippines immigration market, and particularly to provide support to locals wishing to move to Australia. For Filipinos, Australia immigration can be particularly attractive given Australia's location in the Pacific Rim, enabling migrants to return home more frequently than they could from Europe or the eastern United States.

Global businesses see the Philippines as an attractive market in which to invest, so the new Global Visas office will also be providing support services for immigration to the Philippines. The former Spanish colony is a fast-growing and dynamic Asian economy in its own right, and is an attractive place for inward investment for global businesses.

Global Visas is delighted to have its new Philippines office, supporting not just UK, Australia and Canada immigration applications for Filipinos migrating elsewhere, but also serving businesses seeking to bring external skills into the local market. The new office is a strategic addition to the worldwide Global Visas network, bringing all of the company's worldwide knowledge and power to a market that has previously lacked this level of expertise.

Global Visas Philippines Manager John Clifford says, "We are looking forward to offering regulated and professional services to people who are all too often reliant on unregulated poor advice which frequently causes more problems than it solves. We are very keen to take on these dubious agencies and engage with local embassies to ask them to help us address these issues."
