- Registered on FRLII: 09 August 2008
- Department:DIAC
- Description:These Regulations amend the Migration Regulations 1994 to repeal Temporary Protection visas (TPVs) and Temporary Humanitarian visas (THVs) so that all future arrivals in Australia who are found to engage Australia's protection obligations are granted a Permanent Protection visa. The amendments also provide that holders of TPVs and THVs, and in some instances former holders of these visas who are in Australia, are eligible for a permanent Resolution of Status visa without the need to reassess protection obligations (subject to meeting health, character and security criteria).
