Removing barriers to safety for temporary visa holders experiencing domestic and family violence

The Australian Women Against Violence Alliance have released a Blueprint for Reform on Removing Barriers to Safety for Victims/Survivors of Domestic and Family Violence who are on Temporary Visas, calling on the government to ensure all women and children holding temporary visas who experience domestic, family and sexual violence can access protections, services and justice. The paper outlines the current limitations in accessing legal protections for temporary visa holders experiencing violence, including that violence perpetrated by family members other than a sponsoring partner is not recognised as cause for protection, that some visa holders are at risk of visa cancellation or visa refusal if they separate from a perpetrator or report the violence to police, and that decisions reviews by the Administrative Appeals Tribunal require upfront fee payment of over $1,700 AUD. In Queensland, the paper has been endorsed by the Queensland Centre for Domestic and Family Violence Research, Sera Women’s Shelter Townsville, and Women’s Legal Service QLD. Read the paper and if you agree, call on your local member of parliament for reform by adopting the proposed recommendations.
