Protection visas (onshore)

Permanent protection

If you arrived in Australia legally, you can apply for a Protection visa (subclass 866).

Temporary Protection

If you arrived in Australia illegally, you may be able to apply for a Temporary Protection visa (TPV) (subclass 785) or a Safe Haven Enterprise visa (SHEV) (subclass 790).

If you have already applied for a TPV or a SHEV, you need to wait for the outcome of that application.

TPV and SHEV holders

If you currently hold a Temporary Protection visa (subclass 785) or a Safe Haven Enterprise visa (subclass 790) you must apply for a subsequent TPV or SHEV before your current visa ceases.

More information is available about applying for a subsequent temporary protection visa.
