If you are a genuine LGBTI expat from Singapore and you believe your life is at risk if you go back to Singapore, click here to see your chances of getting a Permanent Residence in Australia right now.

 

Dear Reader,

If you are a LGBTI Singaporean living in Australia, stay with me. In just a moment, I will explain why you could be eligible to apply for an Australian permanent visa.

But you have to be quick. Not many people know about this opportunity offered by the Australian Government.

AN INCREASING NUMBER OF INCIDENTS HAVE BEEN REPORTED…

On 30 March 2020, Singapore’s High Court ruled to uphold the criminalisation of homosexuality in the country.

Anti-LGBTI sentiment is deeply ingrained in Singapore culture with most Singaporeans holding conservative views about sexual orientation and gender identity.

There is no legislation which protects LGBTI persons from discrimination or hate crimes in Singapore.

LGBTI persons in Singapore face stigma, discrimination, harassment, emotional and verbal abuse and are forced into heterosexual marriage.

Most LGBTI persons do not live openly as LGBTI persons due to discrimination and violence…

That’s why many LGBTI Singaporeans 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 LGBTI-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, Singaporeans 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, if you go back to Singapore, you may be eligible to apply for a protection visa. 

Don’t worry, this visa is 100% confidential. Your friends and family will never know you have applied for a protection visa.

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

Before that, let me address the main issue…

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, 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, LGBTI applicants don’t have the time and resources to properly write claims explaining why the Singaporean government and even 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. 

See, it’s difficult for them to gather the right evidence to support their claims.  

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 LGBTI expat from Singapore and you believe your life is at risk if you go back to Singapore, click here to book a consultation with us.

The second main reason LGBTI Singaporeans get their protection visa application refused is also quite alarming… 

Singaporeans tend to look for immigration agents who come from Singapore.

And many Singaporean immigration agents in Australia were raised by families who do not accept homosexuality, let alone transgenders.

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 LGBTI Singaporeans coming to our office crying and asking for help.

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

In the last month alone, in response to a growing number of protection visa refusals, LGBTI Singaporeans are coming in droves to get assistance from us.   

We are the No. 1 protection visa lawyers, proudly helping LGBTI Singaporeans 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 Singaporean LGBTI 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 LGBTI community. 

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

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

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

We understand LGBTI 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 LGBTI person and your life is at risk if you go back to Singapore. 

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 Singaporean LGBTI living in Australia… 

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

The COVID situation is not getting any better worldwide. International borders will remain closed. 

If you set foot outside Australia before launching your protection visa application, your chances of getting a protection visa offshore will be zero. You cannot apply for a protection visa outside Australia.

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

They want to apply for their protection visa in case they need to travel back to Singapore 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 Singapore. 

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 LGBTI discrimination in Singapore right here from Australia, while enjoying most privileges and benefits Australian citizens have.

If you are a genuine LGBTI expat from Singapore and you believe your life is at risk if you go back to Singapore, fill in the form below to see your chances of getting a Permanent Residence in Australia right now.

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.
