Australian maritime immigrants face changes if new laws are accepted

Australia Boat

Australia currently has over 33,000 asylum seekers in the country and they may now be eligible to place an application to be granted a permanent visa. A high court decision, if successful, could make it possible as it will prevent the occurrence of previous repeated attempts from the Abbott government, who wanted to make it impossible for anybody illegally arriving by boat to gain permanent residency.

Numerous cases have been brought to the courts by asylum seekers who are looking for the chance to apply for a permanent protection visa. The cases that have been brought to the courts attention could mean that for approximately 4,000 asylum seekers, who at an earlier stage had had a governmental  ban lifted, could now be eligible to claim asylum which could result in them placing a application for a permanent protection visa.

The minister of immigration insisted that the Australian government need to restore the the visa for temporary protection, he feels that declining asylum seekers who are currently in Australia any opportunity of gaining permanent protection, is just as important as making sure that settlement is denied for anyone who attempts to enter Australia in the same way in the future. The Australian government intend to meet their goals of successfully stopping maritime arrivals, by “stopping the boats” and having them sent on to Nauru or the Mansus Island.

it has been difficult for the Australian government to put the policy into practice and successfully deny all asylum seekers permanent protection, however after silently beginning to tow the boats back in the direction of Indonesia, the past 3 weeks have seen no boats arrive in Australia which have contained asylum seekers. It has had positive results which shows that the new policy could potentially put a stop to all maritime arrivals.

One of the cases which had gone to court, involved a 15 year old Ethiopian child, the boy had made his arrival as a stowaway into Queensland, another case involved a man from Pakistan, he arrived in May 2012 to the Christmas Island, he is currently detained in Western Australia's Yongah Hill detention centre. Both cases are now questioning their eligibility to claim asylum. Refugee and Immigration Legal Centre's executive director, has stated that the new rules significantly change the circumstances surrounding the way in which protection visas are given, even to applicants who were almost at the point of an application being granted.
