I had the pleasure of working with Wavelength during my recent move to Tasmania. They are professional in their dealings, knowledgeable about the process and most of all, super accommodating. Every query of mine was responded to instantaneously and every challenge along the way was met with a 'no worries mate' approach.

Dr Humza Carim
Radiologist

My consultants fought and negotiated on my behalf and were a really nice bunch of people to deal with. I would absolutely recommend Wavelength to my friends and colleagues – and I regularly do.

Dr Vivien Tse
Radiation Oncologist

Wavelength were excellent from the start. They really guided me through the forms and made the whole process much easier. Everything was explained well and we are so glad now that we made this amazing move. I am now in my new role in the Central Coast and loving every minute of Oz life. I would highly recommend going with Wavelength if considering a move to Australia.
