Description:

The Australian Government is inviting applicants via a restricted process to apply to deliver services under the Refugee, Humanitarian, Settlement and Migrant Services Program – Protection (subclass 866) Visa Legal Assistance Program from 2023–24 to 2024–25. 

The objectives of the program are:

  • provide specialist legal assistance at the primary Protection visa processing stage including advising clients of the criteria for a Protection visa, their prospects and other visa options where relevant
  • provide community outreach on the Protection visa program.

The intended outcomes of the program are:

  • make free voluntary refugee legal advice more accessible for Protection visa, and prospective Protection visa, applicants
    • helping to ensure genuine applicants are supported through the visa application process and reducing the exploitation of vulnerable migrants
  • support successful delivery and integrity of the Protection visa program by:
    • supporting Protection visa applicants to articulate claims (resulting in more ‘decision-ready’ applications that provide all the relevant evidence to support protection claims)
    • providing prospective applicants with advice on the requirements for a Protection visa, the implications of applying, and on other visa options which may more appropriately suit their personal circumstances.
