Rebecca Santaera

Rebecca Santaera has vast experience working directly within the Australian Immigration industry/sector.  

She was formerly engaged as a Migration Agent in private practice. Since having co-founded Migrationways in 2014, she provides expert advice and assistance for employers and Visa applicants, particular in Melbourne’s Italian and South American community. She has also forged strong business relationships amongst the Hospitality and Trade industries due to her experience with Employer sponsorship.

After graduating from Swinburne University, Rebecca began her career in Italy in 2009, where she worked as an Australian Migration Consultant for two years.  It was during this time that she gained an invaluable insight to the needs and desires in migration directly from the Italian community.

On her return to Australia in 2011, Rebecca worked under the supervision of an Immigration Law specialist where she was able to further her skills set by focusing on the onshore visas, in particular the Employer Sponsored Visas and Skilled Visas.

“As challenging as providing migration assistance is at times, there is nothing more rewarding than when I make that phone call to an individual or family who have their hopes invested in a future here in Australia and let them know that they are finally a Permanent Resident of this great country of ours. Their excitement and joy reminds me of why I do this work and is what drives me through all the challenges.”
