65 Offence of holding out as licensed immigration adviser


A person commits an offence who holds out that any person (including the person himself or herself) who is not a licensed immigration adviser is a licensed immigration adviser, knowing that the person does not hold a licence.


For the purposes of subsection (1), a person charged with an offence under this section is deemed to know that the person held out as being a licensed immigration adviser was not licensed if, at any time within the 12 months preceding the date of the alleged offence, the person charged had been informed of that fact in writing by the Registrar or a person appointed to the Authority.


A person convicted of an offence under subsection (1) is liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 2 years or a fine not exceeding $10,000, or both.
