Domestic and Family Violence: Home Affairs information sessions for workers

Preventing domestic and family violence (DFV) is a whole-of-government priority, and the Department of Home Affairs has a role in that effort. The Department of Home Affairs will be hosting two information sessions about the role of Home Affairs in assisting temporary and provisional visa holders who are experiencing DFV.

Session 1: Tuesday 3 August 2021, 4:00pm – 5:15pm

Session 2: Thursday 5 August 2021, 12:00pm – 1:15pm

The same topics will be covered in both sessions:

  • the Family Violence Provisions (for Partner visa applicants)
  • Sponsorship Limitations
  • resolving visa status
  • assisting people to return to their home country.

Everyone who works (including volunteers) with visa holders experiencing DFV is invited to join via videoconference or phone.

Please send any questions to us by reply email by 29 July 2021.

The Department of Homes Affairs will be unable to take questions during the session, but will answer general questions sent in advance. Individual queries will not be addressed during these sessions and should be directed to a people authorised to deliver immigration assistance.
