COVID-19 for Migrants

Australian Government Home Affairs 

Immigration and VISAs COVID-19 Home Affairs and News and Media Updates contains all Home Affairs related changes and updates as they occur.

As Australian Government Home Affairs Immigration and other Departmental policy changes are occurring in a very dynamic and shifting environment, you will occasionally hear announcements that do not have current policy guidelines set out on our news and media site. I ask that you wait for those policy guidelines to be released, as this can take a little time. Please focus on announcements from the Minister, Prime Minister or an official source such as Australian Government Health or NSW Government
