Did you arrive by boat in Australia between August 2012 and late September 2013?

Do you want protection in Australia?

Have you applied for a protection visa?

If you arrived by boat in Australia between August 2012 and late September 2013 and you have not yet applied for a protection visa, you MUST do so before 1 October 2017. The government will not accept any protection visa application made after this date.

Preparing and lodging a protection visa application is complicated so it is very important that you get legal assistance to do so.

If you want free legal help to lodge your application before 1 October 2017, please contact Refugee Legal immediately. You can email them at clinic@refugeelegal.org.au or call them on (03) 9413 0101. Do not leave it until the last minute.

Refugee Legal has prepared flyers in English, Tamil, Dari and Persian to inform people seeking asylum of this deadline. You can find these below, or on the Refugee Legal website.

Free legal assistance is also available from the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre.
