A refugee in the country is defined as a person who has fled to another country due to persecution, war or a political or social conflict.
They may be a refugee who has sought refuge in Australia from persecution, or a person on a temporary resident visa who is seeking a visa to enter Australia for humanitarian purposes.
In a refugee assessment, the Australian government must assess whether the person qualifies for a refugee visa and if so, what their status will be.
A person can be a “refugee” or a “self-admitted refugee” when they are fleeing from persecution in another country.
A “refuge” is a person with an intention to return to their home country.
“Self-admittance” means that the person is in a country where they are not considered to be refugees.
A refugee is a foreigner who is a recognised refugee or an individual who has been granted asylum, a refugee protection visa, a temporary visa or a work visa in another member of the European Union.
If you have questions about whether a refugee has arrived in Australia, contact your local Immigration Department.
In the case of a person claiming asylum, their claim will be processed through the Immigration Department’s asylum process.
If a person is not a refugee, the person may apply for a “temporary” visa to stay in Australia.
A temporary visa allows a person to stay for up to a maximum of two years and to have their visa revoked if they breach conditions of their stay.
For more information on visas, including how long they last, go to the Department of Immigration and Border Protection website.
You can get a list of all asylum seekers who are applying for a visa, or if they are already in Australia and are eligible, how to apply for their visa.
If there is a problem with your asylum application, you can contact the Immigration department.
A number of people are also seeking to enter the country.
For example, people from Iran are applying to enter a processing centre in Melbourne to seek refugee status.
A review of asylum seekers has found that some are hiding in Melbourne, while others have been intercepted while attempting to travel to Australia from Iran.
The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade has been advised that people with a “known travel history” may be vulnerable to fraud and could potentially be affected by visa delays.
A high number of applications are from people from South Asia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Afghanistan and Iran.
People from these countries face challenges travelling to Australia as a result of the conflict in Afghanistan and the persecution of Christians in Syria.
If your asylum claims are rejected, you may be referred to the Federal Court for an appeal.
A High Court judge will determine whether the applicant has met the threshold for refugee status, which may include the requirement for an international agreement on asylum to be concluded.
This means that your application may be processed and if your claim is accepted, you will be eligible for a permanent visa to travel.

Refugee protection visa applications A person applying for refugee protection will be required to complete an application form to apply.
It can be found on the Department’s website.
The form must contain a brief summary of the reasons for the application, including evidence about the applicant’s safety, wellbeing and wellbeing as a refugee.
A letter from the Minister of Immigration, Citizenship and Immigration (ICCI) will also be required.
If an application is refused, a court may order the applicant to leave Australia and may require that they register as refugees.
Refugees will also have to provide evidence of any previous immigration or travel problems.
For information about how to lodge an application, go the Department and Immigration website.
If the application is accepted by the Immigration and Refugee Board (IRB), it will be forwarded to the IRB.
The IRB will then consider the application and make a decision.
The decisions can be appealed to the Supreme Court.
In some cases, the application may even be withdrawn and a decision can be made on the basis of insufficient evidence.
