BREAKING NEWS: Myanmar nationals will have their application for protection visa prioritised by the Department of Home Affairs
According to Andrew Giles, Minister for Immigration, Myanmar nationals currently residing in Australia who have arrived with a valid visa will have their application for protection visa prioritised by the Department of Home Affairs.
What does that mean?
If you are a Myanmar (Burma) National visiting, studying or working in Australia, you could be eligible to stay permanently in Australia.
This is a welcome news that has been confirmed by ABC News on 10 November 2022.
What’s more, right now you have the best chances to succeed in your protection visa application if you are a Myanmar national currently living, visiting or studying in Australia.
But you have to be quick.
Immigration laws and priorities can change at the drop of a hat.
BE CAUTIOUS OR ELSE YOUR PROTECTION VISA APPLICATION WILL BE REFUSED
SBS published on 9 September 2019 that “more than 90 percent 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 (SUBCLASS 866) APPLICATION…
Oftentimes, Myanmar applicants don’t have a good command of the English language.
Or they don’t have the time and resources to properly write their claims for protection.
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…
Worse still, they are not able to provide documents and evidence to support their claims.
This could lead to your application being refused.
Anything that could spark doubt in the mind of the Immigration Department could jeopardise your protection visa application.
There will also be an interview…
The immigration officer will ask you lots of questions.
And if you answer something wrong or say something irrelevant, your application could be refused.
This interview is very important.
You need to prepare for this interview just like you study to pass a school exam.
