Finding someone who understands refugee claims
Not all migration agents work with people seeking asylum and refugees. This is a difficult area of law, so you should find someone who has experience when seeking legal or migration advice.
We have listed our member organisations and some other organisations which specialise in this area on the menu. Choose your State and you can see who may help you.
If they cannot help you, they may be able to suggest other places for you to go.
Other migration agents
If you want to find another migration agent for legal or migration advice, you can go to the Migration Institute of Australia’s website and choose ‘Refugee and Humanitarian’ to find someone who specialises in this area.
Many lawyers are also migration agents. Lawyers who work regularly in this area may be ‘accredited’ as being a specialist by their legal body.
However, these specialists may work in immigration law, but not with refugees.
You can find accredited specialists in immigration law:
The other States and Territories do not have accredited specialists, but you can find lawyers or law firms that work in immigration here:
