Pathway to permanency for TPV and SHEV holders


The Federal Government announced refugees holding a temporary protection or safe haven enterprise visa can now transition to permanent residency via a Resolution of Status Visa (Subclass 851). 

Refugee community groups have been campaigning for the removal of TPV’s since the policy’s inception in 2014 under the Liberal-National Coalition government. 

The conversion process is expected to take 12 months, and the announcement has been welcomed by refugee organisations including Refugee Advice and Casework Service (RACS).
