Anti-Colonisation Policy:

  • In accordance with our Anti-Colonisation policy, we do not assist white / ethnic European clients from European countries with relocating to locations outside of Europe.

  • White applicants from unsafe European countries ( eg. Poland, Hungary ) are welcome to our assistance in relocating to a safe country elsewhere in Europe *only*.

  • White applicants from unsafe colonised lands (eg. USA, South Africa) will be encouraged to seek European destinations first. Lateral moves (eg. USA to Australia) will also be considered, subject to our discretion.
