Refugees and Asylum-seekers
PLAYFAIR has a proud history of providing migration assistance and advice to people seeking refuge and asylum in Australia. For over 15 years, we have been contracted by the Australian Government to provide free assistance to disadvantaged people, whether they are being held in Immigration Detention Centres, living in the community on Bridging Visas or simply financially disadvantaged and trying to reunite with their family members. If you are someone seeking asylum in Australia and you are currently in this country, please contact our office for an assessment of your matter.
Free information Sessions
PLAYFAIR provides free migration information sessions, usually in association with welfare providers. Our information sessions can be tailored to provide advice on a specific visa or can be broader advice such as family reunion. At the end of all information sessions there is an opportunity for people attending to ask the migration agent questions about any area of migration that interests them. If you would like to know when our next information session will be held or if you are a community group and would like us to provide an information session to people within your community, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Welfare providers and community organisations assisting disadvantaged members of society can refer clients who require legal advice in relation to family reunion and other forms of migration to Australia. PLAYFAIR can arrange for complimentary group migration information sessions for your staff and team leaders, as well as group migration information sessions for your clients. If you wish to request a complimentary migration information session, please email email@example.com
Immigration Advice and Application Assistance Scheme (IAAAS)
PLAYFAIR is one of the leading providers of the Immigration Advice and Application Assistance Scheme (IAAAS). To be eligible for assistance under this scheme, you firstly need to demonstrate that you are financially disadvantaged, and secondly show that one of the following applies to you:
- you do not speak English; or
- you cannot seek independent help because of youth or cultural difficulties; or
- you are illiterate in your native language and/or principal language in your country of origin; or
- you live in a remote area within Australia where you do not have access to a registered migration agent within a reasonable distance; or
- you have a physical or psychological disability, including as a result of past torture or trauma; or
- you have suffered, or are suffering, physical or psychological harm resulting from domestic violence.
If you are eligible under IAAAS, PLAYFAIR can assist you with the preparation of a protection visa and if required, can provide assistance at the review tribunals. PLAYFAIR can also offer assistance to individuals currently on a partner visa and experiencing domestic violence. People interested in reuniting with families can also benefit from advice under this scheme.
