Link Migration Gold Coast is directed by Matheus Da Silva, an experienced Registered Migration Agent and Australian immigration law expert.

Matheus emigrated to Australia in 2006, after successfully completing his Bachelor of Laws in Porto Alegre, Brazil. Arriving in Sydney on a student visa, it did not take long for him to feel a strong connection with Australia and the Australian people.

In 2008 Matheus realised that his wish to call Australia home could soon become reality, and he decided to pursue his legal career in Australia. Before becoming a migration agent, Matheus worked as a paralegal/migration assistant for large migration companies in Brisbane. During this time he helped succesfully process hundreds of visa applications across Australia and acquired extremely valuable experience.

Matheus Da Silva holds a Graduate Certificate in Australian Migration Law and Practice completed through Victoria University. He takes great pride in assisting his clients in achieving their migration goals. Working with immigration law has enabled Matheus to utilize his foreign language skills and his passion for dealing with people of diverse backgrounds and cultures.

Having been a migrant himself, Matheus can personally relate to each of his clients as he truly understands all the challenges and difficulties involved in migrating to a foreign country.
