This information is for people who have a SHEV visa.
Settlement Services International in NSW has also developed a presentation with useful information for SHEV holders.
Can I sponsor my family members for permanent migration to Australia?
Can I travel outside Australia on this visa?
Can I become a citizen on this visa?
You cannot become a citizen at the end of this visa. You have to apply for another visa.
Under the current law, before you can become a citizen, you would have to:
- meet the SHEV ‘pathway requirements’ so you can get another kind of visa, and
- get a permanent visa (not because you need protection).
