Refugee visa – Australia Visa: How to apply and obtain, Procedure, Documents required?

What is a Refugee visa – Australia Visa?

The Australian government issues the Refugee Visa Subclass 200 to those who seek to immigrate there because they are fleeing persecution in their home countries. The holder of visa number 200 is permitted to live and work in Australia for an extended period of time while also learning a variety of skills. Refugees are assisted in understanding the procedures and restrictions involved by the well-known visa processing unit.


You can apply for 1 of 4 refugee visa subclasses:

  • Refugee (subclass 200) refers to those who have been referred to Australia for resettlement by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).
  • Individuals who are still inside their nation but are unable to leave may be eligible for in-country special humanitarian assistance (subclass 201).
  • People who have been referred to Australia by the UNHCR because they are in immediate danger may need emergency rescue (subclass 203).
  • Women who are in danger of victimization and do not have the protection of a partner or a family member should apply for Woman at Risk (subclass 204) status.


To be eligible for the refugee visas you must:

  • be outside Australia (offshore)
  • be persecuted in your country of origin
  • satisfy the “compelling reasons” requirement
  • satisfy the standards for national security, morality, and health

What is the processing time?

  • United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) has determined that they are refugees, and
  • We only accept applications in the most compelling situations due to the low number of resettlement slots available each year and the great demand for them.
