LGBT expats from India could be eligible to stay permanently in Australia…

As of 26 May we’ve been flooded with LGBT applicants from India seeking to stay permanently in Australia…

I will explain why in just a moment. 

First let me quickly go through the root of the problem.

The main issue is not the Indian Government…

Nor are the young peers of these LGBT Indians.

It’s their own families.

“I tried to talk to my mother but she didn’t understand. She said I was a disgrace to my family and that they didn’t expect this from me,” Kamalika Dasgupta told SBS Hindi.

According to Vyjayanti Vasanta Mogli, a transwoman LGBT activist and public policy scholar at Tata Institute of Social Sciences, “village medics and babas often prescribe rape to cure lesbians of homosexuality.

In some cases, secret honour killings are planned so that the only way for a young LGBT person to survive is to run away from their own families.

That’s why many LGBT Indians are running away to Australia…

Oftentimes they come as a student…

Here they experience freedom to express their real sexuality and gender identity without discrimination.

Australia is one of the most LGBT-friendly countries in the world.

In a Pew Research poll, 79% of Australians agreed that homosexuality should be accepted by society.

What’s more, when they get here, Indians realise that they can apply for a protection visa and stay permanently in Australia…

How good is that?

If you believe your life is at risk because of your homosexuality or your gender identity you may be eligible to apply for a protection visa. 

And in just a moment I will explain why you should apply for a protection visa as soon as possible.

Before that, let me address the main issue ahead of you…

Quite often these protection visas are refused by the Immigration Office. 

SBS published on 9 September 2019 that ‘more than 90 per cent of onshore protection visa cases are refused’.

So what happens if your protection visa application gets refused.

If your application gets refused the first time, your chances of staying in Australia will be very slim.

You will have to appeal.

You may have to go to court. 

Avoid that at all costs.

Reasons that could lead the immigration office to refuse your protection visa application?  

Oftentimes, LGBT applicants don’t have the time and resources to properly write claims explaining why their own families pose a risk to their lives. 

And they also struggle to explain and prove that they are genuine homosexuals or transgender. 

Sometimes because they haven’t even come out to their family and friends yet. 

See, they don’t even know what evidence to provide.  

There are ambiguities, contradictions and even grammar mistakes in their claims.

What they are trying to say can be easily misinterpreted by the Immigration Office.

Anything that could spark doubt in the mind of the Immigration Department could jeopardise your protection visa application.

If you are a genuine LGBT expat from India and you believe your life is at risk if you go back to India, click here  to book a consultation with us.

The second main reason LGBT Indians get their protection visa application refused is also quite alarming…

Indian nationals tend to hire immigration agents who come from India.

And many Indian immigration agents in Australia were raised by families who do not accept homosexuality, let alone gender transition.

They might agree to help you. But be careful…      

Most of the time, they don’t specialise in protection visas. Even worse, deep inside they don’t agree with your homosexuality or gender identity. 

Plain and simple, they just want your money. 

More than often, these protection visa applications are refused. And we get LGBT Indians coming to our office crying and asking for help.

Sometimes we can help. But other times, there is nothing we can do.  

In May 2021 alone, in response to a growing number of protection visa refusals, LGBT Indians came in droves to get assistance from us.  

We are the No. 1 protection visa lawyers, proudly helping LGBT Indians to stay in Australia…

Last year, we were rated as “Best Protection Visa Lawyers in Melbourne” by “Top 10 Lawyers”. 

And the news is quickly spreading among the entire Indian LGBT community in Australia.

We believe in human rights without discrimination of any kind, including discrimination on the basis of sexuality, sex identity or gender.

But most importantly, we proudly support the LGBT community. 

You might have seen us before in LGBT protests around Melbourne. And we will continue actively participating and sponsoring upcoming LGBT activities.

If you are a genuine LGBT expat from India and you believe your life is at risk if you go back to India, click here  to book a consultation with us.

Our strong connection with the LGBT community is the main reason why 98.9% of our protection visa applications get approved…

We understand LGBT issues like no other immigration agents and lawyers in Australia.

We know how to write claims and collect all the necessary evidence to prove to the Immigration Office that you are a genuine LGBT person and your life is at risk if you go back to India. 

We have even successfully represented LGBT individuals in court when their visa applications got refused and they had little hope to stay in Australia. 

But as I said before, you want to avoid getting your visa refused at any costs. 

And we want to help you lodge your protection visa application in a way that doesn’t create any doubt in the mind of the Immigration Office from the outset. 

Right now you have the best chances to succeed in your protection visa application if you are a genuine Indian LGBT living in Australia… 

But you have to be quick. We are living moments of uncertainty. 

The COVID situation in India is not getting any better.

If you set foot outside Australia before launching your protection visa application, your chances of getting a protection visa offshore will be very slim.

That’s why as of 26 May we are having a high influx of LGBT Indians coming to our office…

They want to apply for their protection visa in case they need to travel back to India for emergency purposes and get stuck there.

Who knows when or if they will be able to return to Australia.

That’s why they want to make sure their protection visa doesn’t get refused.

They see this as a once-in-a-life-time opportunity to free themselves from gender and sexual oppression and discrimination in India. 

But it’s not only that… 

It’s also about a unique opportunity to live in a country with the world’s highest standard of living…

Everyone wants to live in Australia. 

Wages in Australia are much higher than most other countries. 

A protection visa let’s you stay in Australia permanently.

You can live and work in Australia as a permanent resident.

And that means you are also entitled to Medicare (Australia’s free health care scheme) and Centrelink services (financial support from the government).

Better still, you can get your Medicare right after lodging your protection visa application.

Ultimately, you will have all the power to fight against LGBT discrimination in India right here from Australia, while enjoying most privileges and benefits Australian citizens have.

If you are a genuine LGBT expat from India and you believe your life is at risk if you go back to India, fill in the form below to book a consultation with us.

Attention: As of 26 May we’ve been experiencing a high influx of consultations. But we promise we will get back to you as soon as possible.
