On 05 May 2021, the Australian Government announced that it will have a special visa arrangement to support Myanmar nationals currently in Australia to extend their Australian visa until it is safe to return home. Each Myanmar national holding a temporary visa in Australia would be contacted by the Australian Government with further advice on the special visa arrangements.
The Australian Government has condemned the ongoing violence in Myanmar which commenced in February 2021. The introduction of these special visa arrangements for Myanmar nationals is consistent and in line with the international obligations of Australia. These options have not been specifically described or launched yet.
We will continue to monitor the situation and provide further updates as they become available on our News and Updates page. You can also subscribe to our newsletter to get notified of the latest updates by providing your email address in the subscribe section below.
Whilst waiting for the Australian government to announce the special visa arrangements for Myanmar nationals, it would also be worthwhile for you to start exploring the existing visa options especially if your visa is about to expire. You can also book in a consultation with us so we can explore all the options together with you.
The public announcement made by the Minister for Immigration, Citizenship, Migrant Services and Multicultural Affairs of the Australian Government can be found here.
