Family separation and family reunion for refugees: The issues

Migration advice

  Migration advice

One final concern raised by participants was the lack of funded migration advice for refugee communities seeking to sponsor their family members. Participants noted that migration advice had previously been reduced or removed in grants, leaving many without free or subsidised advice. This has resulted in applicants making invalid applications or being rejected because they have no knowledge of the legal requirements and can’t afford private migration advice. Migration advice through programs such as the Settlement Grants program should be restored.
