The bill: Migration Newsletter 630 discussed how the unfair Migration Amendment
(Regulation of Migration Agents) Bill 2017 could be part of a long-term plan to
abolish the RMA profession.That discussion implied that only some RMAs would be immediately impacted upon
by the bill. Actually, most RMAs could well be immediately impacted upon.
Here is why. Lawyers would no longer be subject to the Code of Conduct for RMAs (Code).
As a result, many lawyers could well be tempted to freely unfoundedly market
themselves as providing superior immigration assistance compared to RMAs.
Even lawyers with no experience in migration law could well be so tempted.
