Submission: Senate Select Committee on Temporary Migration

Amnesty International Australia, in its submission to the Senate Select Committee on Temporary Migration’s inquiry into temporary migration, has called for the abolition of temporary visas.

People on Temporary Protection Visas (TPV) and Safe Haven Enterprise Visas (SHEV) face a number of issues including: not having the ability to bring their family to Australia, not having access to Humanitarian Settlement Program employment opportunities, and not having access to JobKeeper.

Amnesty works to support refugees and asylum seekers. We challenge injustice by campaigning for the Australian government to raise the humanitarian intake, improve community sponsorship and end offshore detention. Learn more about our Refugee Rights campaign here.
