My name is Kevin Jacobsen and I am the producer for the Chris Brown F.A.M.E tour of Australia. Throughout my career, I have produced concerts in Australia for some of the biggest names in music, including, but not limited to – Michael Jackson, Barbara Streisand, Bruce Springsteen, The BeeGees, The Three Tenors, KISS, Simon and Garfunkel, Bob Marley, Shania Twain, Billy Joel, John Denver, Pearl Jam, Cyndi Lauper, Julio Iglesias, Barry Manilow, Meat Loaf, Olivia Newton John, Peter Allen, Sammy Davis Jr, Usher in 2003 in addition to shows like Stars of the Bolshoi Ballet, outdoor stadium productions of the opera AIDA and Turandot which included many international artists, Walt Disney World on Ice, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, Fame and Dirty Dancing – The Classic Story on Stage.
I have been awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia O.A.M medal for my services to the performing arts and entertainment industry in addition to many established industry awards.
Charbel Nehme and I met through a mutual acquaintance where the issues surrounding Chris Brown’s past were discussed when at the time, it appeared very unlikely that he would ever make it to Australia.
Charbel’s opinion on the matter at all times was based on what is stated in the law and he was able to provide us with clear advice that instilled confidence in us all. Not a single cent was to be spent on the Chris Brown production until all parties were satisfied that Chris Brown was able to obtain an Australian visa.To mitigate the risk, Charbel suggested we submit a valid sponsorship, nomination and visa application for Chris Brown only, citing the circumstances and requesting immediate referral to the Character Unit for consideration of Chris Brown’s conduct.
We adhered to Charbel’s advice, and as a result Chris Brown was cleared by the Character Unit where consequentially his application was referred back to the immigration department for continued processing.
In addition to the character clearance, Charbel co-ordinated forty business nomination and forty visa applications for the group of individuals who will support Chris Brown in Australia – comprised of musicians, dancers, management staff and other personnel who are being employed in support of this tour. From what I observed, Charbel worked tirelessly around the clock to deal with Chris Brown’s management in requesting, reviewing and obtaining the great deal of visa information that was required to meet Australian immigration requirements and processing deadlines. Anyone who is involved in media and entertainment is working in a cut throat business. Either you succeed or you fail. I do not believe Charbel would have been able to adapt to the norm of our profession, which involved being able to meet the strict demands of this fast paced and lucrative industry no matter what time of the day or night it was required of him. Charbel’s success in working on the Chris Brown matter has resulted in over $5 million worth of economic stimulus in Australia. As a result, I recommend and will continue to recommend Charbel’s immigration services to all those who require assistance, and I will most definately retain Charbel’s services should I require any future support.

Hi my name is David like many before me I was applying for a visa for my partner. Not knowing how to go about it I found the paper work overwhelming and had no help from visa office. So I looked up on google help and found Charbel Nehme number 2 On google search ( should be number 1 ), so I gave him a call and I found him to be very helpful and very good at what he does.
He did not lie and make fairy tale promises to me he told me straight up how it was and 8 months later she is here I cannot put into words how I feel what the kind heart honest man has done for myself and partner and family he has bless us and allways will be in our hearts .I do recommend anyone who needs help to seek out this kind man for help in these matters.
I found Charbel very helpful and attentive to my visa application, which was quite specialist in its nature. He came back to me quickly with regards to any issues I needed clarifying and was supportive throughout the process.
I take this opportunity to thank you for all your help not only in my personal application but from Philips also, for making our work much easier knowing that we have trustworthy representative on our hands!
Right from the time I was getting my application initially assessed, Charbel personally addressed and clarified every issue or concern. The service was more than professional and I felt like an esteemed client dealing with a large law firm. Charbel was constantly on top of things and I never once felt that I was out of capable hands. The timeframe from lodging the application to grant was nothing short of phenomenal. Id personally recommend Charbel to anyone Australia wide or even overseas. Despite being interstate, he made the application process structured and seamless. And kept me informed every step of the way including the seemingly impossible grant date just shy of the New Year. Thanks for everything. Id call it a miracle but it was just the hard work of a very dedicated agent. Fantastic response times, impressively knowledgeable and unbeatable all round service

We are very pleased by your professionalism and efficiency, I will definitely keep your firm in mind for both SoftwareOne and our other clients if needed in future.Have a good long weekend!
The best news ever! On behalf of the whole family we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your efforts and time. Your work is greatly appreciated. This is a lot more than a 457 visa, as of couple of hours ago, a whole family has been revived.I will be in touch for the next round of the same case !!!, other cases or just to say hello. Have a fantastic day.
My partner and I found ourselves faced with a situation in which every complication that exists with securing a partner visa was a reality for us. After consulting with various other migration agents, Charbel was the only one who truly listened and understood the complexities attached to our case. He took great care in the advice he provided right from the initial consultation – I knew we found the right professional who can assist us each step of the way.
Charbel never took more than 48 hours to respond to any questions we had and always in a professional manner. Given the complex nature of our case it was great to have Charbel’s superb knowledge of the migration labyrinth as we worked through securing the partner visa. What a success it has been for us and we couldn’t have done it without Charbel’s help!
Nathan and I want to express our sincere gratitude for your enormous help and guidance with our partner visa application.From the very beginning, you have made what could have been a very stressful and lengthy process, so easy and hassle free for us. You gave us and our case so much attention and have always been very quick to respond to our emails and return our calls.You are just brilliant at what you do and we will be boasting about you whenever an opportunity arises!
Thank you again.
Hi my name is Jack Crouch applying for a 457 visa, I found Charbel on Google and I am so pleased I did!
Charbel made my experience of applying for this visa very easy, he was always emailing me and calling, keeping me informed and making sure everything was perfect to give me the best application possible.I was one of the people that doesn’t have the qualifications for my trade but the experience. He made sure I had everything I needed before lodging my visa, so the immigration wouldn’t have to start asking for things and it went through with ease.I would recommend him to everyone I come across and will definitely be using him when I want to apply for permanent residency.
I am so grateful and thankful to have Charbel Nehme & Associates as my immigration agent as I am certain that my application for 820/801 would have failed if it wasn’t for their very professional guidance. Charbel has been extremely helpful at every step along the way and has always been very honest, practical & thorough. I highly recommend him to anyone who feels like they are not too sure about the process and are left in the dark. I was absolutely clueless and blind through out the way and Charbel was always there with a bright torch guiding me along.
