A message from the founder, Filippo Pellegrino

I started Modern Migration Australia in 2012 following successful careers in a range of sectors as including Domestic and International Education as well as living in Europe and Asia. Migration was then the perfect fit. Having been heavily influenced by the notion of the relationships, my goal was to create a boutique firm specialising in Business and Investment and Family Visas. With a strong will and moral compass, we have extended into Protection Visas and Appeals. I’m personally proud of our team and the many successes we’ve had over the years and look forward to a future in an ever diversified and multicultural Australian Society.
