About Us

Personalised and honest migration advice.

Haylock Migration has been operating since 2003. Our mission is to provide every client with the very best chance to achieve their goal to live and work in Australia.

Our story

Before becoming a registered migration professional, Diane Haylock spent many years working for the Australian Government, including positions within departments responsible for immigration, citizenship, foreign affairs, as well as an overseas position held with the Department of Immigration. Her work encompassed all aspects of visa application and processing.

Upon returning to Australia, Diane launched a personalised migration service and was soon joined by her daughter Amanda, and Haylock Migration was born. Today, Amanda leads our small team, who are highly skilled and dedicated to providing honest advice and reducing the workload and stress of Australian migration applications.
