Australian Protection Visas for Gay, Lesbian and other LGBT persons

Embark Migration helps clients obtain Australian protection visas under the humanitarian visa program.

Individuals who have been persecuted or have a well-founded fear of future persecution (by their government or people their government are unable or unwilling to control) on account of their religion, ethnic group, political opinion, nationality or membership in a social group (including being gay or lesbian) might be eligible for asylum in Australia.

Applications for asylum require a significant amount of evidence and preparation to be successful.  Asylum generally must be applied for when the applicant is already in Australia.  Embark Migration can help you prepare a strong asylum case and confront obstacles (such as a lack of corroborating evidence).

If you are considering applying for protection in Australia, you need to contact a registered migration agent as soon as possible.  Australian protection visa cases take considerable time to prepare and generally need to be lodged as soon as possible after your arrival in Australia.  Our team of immigration experts have experience in filing applications for asylum and representing individuals seeking protection through Australian immigration.

Contact Embark Migration to schedule a consultation regarding your asylum claim.

    1. Hi Ejon – There are many factors to take into consideration when applying for protection. There are many issues faced by same-sex couples and individual LGBTI people to be aware of and obtaining a protection visa on the grounds of sexuality is never easy. For this reason, we always recommend getting help from a qualified, experienced and registered immigration expert to do a detailed assessment of your case to help you through the process. One of our registered migration agents will contact you shortly to talk to you about your claim and your application for protection.
