Applying with the help of a representative or agent

We have agreements with representatives and agents around the world. They can help you with your application.

If you apply via a representative or agent, you should use one of those listed on our country-specific pages.

Using a representative does not put your application at any advantage or disadvantage. We consider independent applications on an equal basis.
