Juan Silva

Registered Migration Agent

Initially arriving in Australia with the intention of studying English and subsequently returning home, Juan was unaware that Australia would evolve into their second home. Having pursued studies in Law in their home country, Venezuela, where he have resided throughout their life, he had the privilege of exploring the world and residing in diverse locations.

The turning point occurred after meeting his partner in Australia, presenting the extraordinary opportunity to attain permanent residency in this captivating country. It was during this transformative process that a passion for visas and aiding others in achieving their immigration aspirations in Australia was discovered.

Fortunately, this passion materialised upon the completion of studies in Immigration Law, leading to the individual becoming a registered Migration Agent. The commencement of his immigration career found a fitting start at Crystal Migration, where the highly qualified and experienced team has been a source of valuable learning. Juan aspires to continue honing his skills and contribute to realising the dream of many to call Australia home.

Beyond their professional pursuits, he holds a fervent passion for travelling, exploring new destinations, and immersing themselves in diverse cultures. Juan particularly cherishes the beach and revels in the warmth of a pleasant, sunny day.

Inicialmente, Juan llegó a Australia con la intención de estudiar inglés y luego regresar a su hogar. Su formación académica se centró en el campo del Derecho en su país de origen, Venezuela, donde residió toda su vida. Al terminar su curso de inglés, Juan no tenía idea de que Australia se convertiría en su segundo hogar.

Tras conocer a su pareja en Australia, se presentó la increíble oportunidad de obtener la residencia permanente en este hermoso país. Fue durante todo este proceso de aplicar por su visa de pareja que descubrió su pasión por los temas migratorios y se sintió motivado a ayudar a otros a alcanzar sus metas para migrar a Australia.

Afortunadamente, esa pasión se materializó al completar sus estudios en Derecho Migratorio y convertirse en Agente Migratorio registrado. Crystal Migration se convirtió en un espacio significativo para iniciar su carrera en inmigración. Actualmente Juan forma parte del equipo que se destaca por su alta cualificación y extensa experiencia, del cual ha aprendido mucho. Juan espera seguir desarrollando sus habilidades y contribuir a hacer realidad el sueño de muchos otros de llamar hogar a Australia.

Juan siente una gran pasión por viajar, explorar nuevos lugares y descubrir distintas culturas. Le encanta la playa y disfruta de los días agradables, cálidos y soleados.
