Applying for a subsequent TPV or SHEV


If you hold a Temporary Protection visa (TPV) or a Safe Haven Enterprise visa (SHEV) you must apply for a subsequent TPV or SHEV before your current visa expires. If you do not apply before your visa expires, you will become unlawful and will be barred from applying for a subsequent visa.

Apply for a subsequent TPV or SHEV.

If you have a Temporary Protection visa or a Safe Haven Enterprise visa it is your responsibility to know your visa conditions, including the visa expiry date.


Check the expiry date of your visa on your Visa Grant Notice or in VEVO


If you wish to remain in Australia, you must apply for another Temporary Protection visa or a Safe Haven Enterprise visa before your current visa expires.


There are serious consequences if you do not apply in time, including losing access to work rights, study rights and benefits such as Medicare and Centrelink payments


You should allow plenty of time to prepare your application for another Temporary Protection visa or a Safe Haven Enterprise visa.


Apply online by setting up an ImmiAccount.


The Department will notify you when your application has been received and is being processed.


Your current Temporary Protection visa or Safe Haven Enterprise visa, along with access to any benefits and work and study rights will be extended until there is a decision on your new application.


If you need help with your application you can use a registered migration agent, at your cost. Ensure the migration agent is registered with the Office of the Migration Agents Registration Authority.


As a temporary visa holder, it is very important that the Department is able to contact you. Make sure your contact details are up to date.
