Kia ora, My name is Erina Morunga and I am the director of Morunga Migration Pty Ltd as well as a Registered Migration Agent (RMA) since 2017.
My key role is to provide a unique service to fellow Kiwis by giving advice about all kinds of immigration and citizenship matters as well complete and lodge visa and citizenship applications on our clients' behalf.
Our core team is made up of myself and my migration assistant and manager, Emily Van Eyk. She just so happens to be my daughter in law as well so lucky me!
We have an additional RMA who is out on maternity leave at the moment and hopes to rejoin us in 2021. From time to time we engage other trusted RMAs to assist us when and where needed.
In addition we have two other fellow Kiwi part time administration staff who help assist with filing, data entry and ensuring the wheels of our business and service is being well looked after.
My main office is currently situated in Naracoorte, SA since December 2019 (somewhere between Adelaide and Melbourne!) and most of the work we do is online and via video conferencing and phone.
We started out in Adelaide, SA in 2017 and continue to operate from there, where my assistant, Emily, is based.
A bit about myself and how I came to be a RMA
My family and I emigrated from New Zealand to Australia in 2007. We originate from Te Tai Tokerau, the Hokianga and Whangarei.
Since 2013, I have been campaigning via networks such as Iwi n Aus and Route 501 to raise awareness and education around Australian migration law and the negative impact it has caused to New Zealand citizens living in Australia.
My professional background is a school teaching background in Education and Migration Law & Practice. I believe everyone deserves security and peace of mind, particularly when we have all contributed enormous amounts in taxes for many years, as well as the positive input we bring into our communities.
I'm particularly passionate about our unique immigration situation as New Zealanders living in Australia and it is my personal goal to help as many fellow Kiwis with their visa and citizenship matters as possible.
Due to the lack of credible information and specialised advice I embarked on a journey to learn for myself how immigration and citizenship truly worked for us Kiwis living in Australia. As a result, I enrolled and studied Migration Law & Practice via the Australian National University.
Upon completion and qualifying I wasted no time in setting up Morunga Migration and have been advising and supporting fellow Kiwis since.
I believe we need professionals in the immigration industry who are specialised in this unique area of migration and citizenship law, empathetic, understanding, compassionate, non-judgemental, trustworthy, competent, harding working, reliable and professional.
The journey to becoming an RMA has been a tough road but well worth the effort and the rewards of seeing families secure their futures is second to none.
My team and I aim to educate fellow Kiwis and make a major positive difference to the lives of all those who would seek to secure their future here in Australia.
