About the Refugee and Humanitarian program

​​Australia’s Refugee and Humanitarian Program is part of international efforts to protect refugees, respond to global humanitarian need and provide specialist support.

Resettle in Australia

If you live outside Australia and need humanitarian protection, you may have options to resettle in Australia.

Australian businesses, communities and individuals can help people in humanitarian need resettle here through our Community Support Program.
