In addition, Vienna is able to communicate in Mandarin and Cantonese.

Furthermore, Vienna has extensive experience in dealing with complex visa applications, special direction requests to the Minister and appeals at the Immigration and Protection Tribunal. She also has a proven track record for a high success rate for appeals in the Tribunal.

“It is better to solve one problem five different ways than to solve five problems one way.” ― George Pólya
