The temporary entry and permanent migration program includes a number of visas including family, tourist, student, skilled and other work visas.
This blog aims to provide you with information and updates on issues relating to the work of our division. We hope that this information will provide you with more context for the ‘what’, ‘how’ and ‘why’ of our policies.
We encourage readers to engage through comments on blog post where comments are enabled. For any post with comments enabled, the comments will remain open for 7 days, and we will endeavour to respond to all new queries during this time.
The blog is not the appropriate contact point for individual visa enquiries or specific case questions. If you are enquiring about an individual visa case, or any other departmental matter, you can see the Department of Immigration and Border Protection’s Contact Us page at www.immi.gov.au/contacts/
