Our Services

So what do TEP do?

TEP (formerly Stablemate) are migration professionals, with expertise in meeting the needs of regional Australian applicants and businesses as well as those in primary and rural industries Australia wide. We have also recently developed a strong rapport with businesses in city locations with a number of restaurants and IT professionals using our service.

Here is an overview of what we do.


TEP provide professional migration advice with the services of two highly experienced migration agents with an incredibly high success rate.

We provide services in both temporary and permanent visa applications to those wishing to work or apply under the family stream to remain in Australia.

We are also expanding the service to include areas of migration not covered in the past and we will send out regular newsletters to our clients.

We have successfully negotiated with the Department of Immigration on some very challenging cases and have had an impact on a number of minor and major policy decisions.

We enjoy taking the challenges that our clients and regional Australian businesses face to decision makers within the department to the highest level.
