This information is provided by RACS, a legal organisation that helps refugees in Sydney. It was last updated on 17 November 2015.

This fact sheet is for community workers and service providers, or members of the community who would like to know more about how to best refer a vulnerable person seeking asylum for consideration for eligibility for government funded legal assistance with their application for a protection visa under the Primary Application Information Service (PAIS).

Except for children for whom the Minister is the legal guardian, services under PAIS only cover the primary stage of an application, and do not extend to review by the Immigration Assessment Authority.
