Protection Visas in Australia

Protection visas are temporary or permanent visas that allow people who are persecuted in their home country to live and work in Australia. These visas are granted to people who meet the criteria for refugee status under the United Nations Refugee Convention.

There are a number of different types of protection visas that can be granted, depending on an individual’s particular circumstances.

Temporary Protection Visa (TPV)

A TPV is a temporary visa that is typically valid for three years. It allows holders to live and work in Australia, but does not provide permanent residency status. TPV holders are not eligible for many government benefits, such as social security payments or public housing.

Permanent Protection Visa (PPV)

A PPV is a permanent visa that allows holders to live and work in Australia indefinitely. PPV holders are eligible for all government benefits and services, including social security payments and public housing.

Humanitarian Visa

A humanitarian visa is a permanent visa that is typically granted to people who are displaced by war or natural disasters. Humanitarian visa holders are eligible for all government benefits and services, including social security payments and public housing.

Protection Visa (866)

The Protection Visa (866) is a permanent visa for people who have been persecuted in their home country. This visa lets you live and work permanently in Australia. You can also apply for Australian citizenship if you meet the eligibility requirements.
