The Department of Home Affairs (“The Department”) is supporting Australia’s response to the escalating crisis in Ukraine.

Anyone wishing to make a new application for a visa to travel to Australia should consider options relevant to

in Australia who have visas expiring in the coming weeks to make arrangements if they wish to remain in
