15,000 places for Afghan nationals over four years: Why Australians are disappointed

Immigration Minister Alex Hawke announced in January 2022 that the Australian Government would provide at least 15,000 places over four years for Afghan nationals from within the existing humanitarian and migration programs: 10,000 humanitarian visas and 5,000 family migration visas from July 2021 to June 2025. Since August, members of Australia’s Afghan diaspora and many supporters from across the Australian community had been calling for a special additional intake of 20,000 places for Afghan refugees. Here are seven reasons why the Minister’s announcement caused widespread disappointment.
