This clinic provides free advice and assistance to TPV holders who need to prepare further Protection Visa applications for lodgement with the Department of Immigration Indigenous and Multicultural Affairs (DIMIA). The clinic provides limited, ‘one off’ advice and assistance in the preparation of further Protection Visa applications.
Since 2001, RILC has conducted a special Clinic Project for refugee and humanitarian entrants. Clinics are held monthly on Sundays.
Currently, the Offshore Family Reunion Clinic Project provides a free legal assistance scheme for refugees - including former Temporary Protection Visa (TPV) holders - who are pursuing applications for offshore ‘family reunion’ sponsorship.
This work mainly involves ‘one-off’ legal assistance with full preparation of family reunion applications for refugees seeking to be reunited with close family, including their spouses, children, siblings and parents.
People who attend the Clinic will be advised and assisted by registered Migration Agents, who are experienced in the preparation of Refugee and Humanitarian Visa applications. This will include full-time staff of RILC and trained volunteer Migration Agents.
Unfortunately, RILC is not able to provide ongoing representation for these applicants. However, further advice can be obtained by calling the Telephone Advice Line service.
An appointment is needed to attend a Sunday Clinic.
