Refugee Looking To Make A Protection Visa Application?

Are you a refugee or asylum seeker in Australia?

Refugee Visa or Protection Visa?

In Australia, refugee visas for those seeking asylum or Australian government protection are known as protection visas.

What is a “refugee visa”?

Also known as a “protection visa” or “asylum visa” or “asylum application” or “asylum-seeker visa”, a refugee visa provides refugees protection in Australia, by allowing a temporary or permanent residence visa for asylum-seekers and those who fall within complementary protection provisions.

An international convention defines what a refugee is and determines whether or not someone is a refugee. However, the convention definition of refugee has been re-scoped by legislation and court decisions to include other applicants seeking protection. These are known as the complementary protection provisions.

How do I get a refugee visa?

A Refugee visa application is made to the Australian Department of Immigration (DIBP) or a Government agency either onshore or offshore.

Refugees need to prove that they are genuine refugees. The DIBP officer determines whether the applicant meets the DIBP’s criteria for a protection visa. To do this, the DIBP officer relies on your home country information research and your submissions.

Many desperate visa applicants lodge protection visa applications onshore as a last resort to remain in Australia. Therefore, our practice assists only genuine asylum seekers and refugees to effectively present their case for protection.

What does it cost?

Refugee visas attract a small fee or no fee upon lodgement of the application with the DIBP.

A schedule of fees and charges applicable to applications lodged at the DIBP is published regularly.

If you use an Immigration Advisor or Registered Australian Migration Agent, additional fees are payable.

Although, the pricing of fees charged by Immigration lawyers and migration agents depends on the skill level of the Immigration Law Specialist, the complexity of the applications, and the urgency of the application.

    1. Investigate whether your were correctly notified of the visa refusal decision. If not, you might be able to persuade them to re-notify you of the visa refusal decision and this will give you further options.
