We understand there has been some confusion regarding the additional places that are available to refugees from Syria.
Please note the below:
• There will be an additional 1,000 visas available with the focus on Iraqi minorities in Syria
• Previous applications that have been refused cannot be used again – a NEW APPLICATION must be submitted – you will require Form 842 and 681 to be completed for a new application – posted to the MELBOURNE office:

Victoria Offshore Humanitarian Processing Centre
GPO Box 241
Melbourne VIC 3001

• It is not necessary for the applications to be signed by the applicants in Syria. Our post can arrange a signature at a later date.
• Please be aware that all applications will be assessed on their merits and will still be subject to external, non-DIAC checks such as police, character and medical clearances.
• Requests for letters of support to accompany your application can be made to your local Federal Member. If you live in McMahon, Chris Bowen MP is your federal member. His office can be contacted on (02) 9604 0710. If you live in Fowler, your local member is Chris Hayes MP. His office can be contacted on (02) 9726 3988.
• Requests for letters of support will be assessed on a case by case basis.
