Pawan Ihtasham

Migration Coordinator

Pawan was born and raised in Pakistan and migrated to Australia in 2015.

She holds a Master of Science in Development Studies and worked for the United Nations until switching her career to Australian migration in 2013 as a Visa Case Officer at the Australian High Commission in Islamabad. It was here that she realized how much a person’s life changes with a visa approval.

After moving to Australia and going through multiple visas by herself, she decided this was a field that she wanted to excel in and try to help as many people as she could.

Pawan speaks English and Urdu, and outside of work, she enjoys crocheting blankets and sweaters for dogs, and spending time with her family and beagle.
