Since 1945, Australia has given refuge to around 70,000 people in their homeland. As many people worldwide are interested in getting this Visa, there are many misunderstandings regarding this visa type, and the process is not a simple one.

This visa type is applicable for both inshore and offshore applicants. There are around 7750 places allocated under this program which includes both onshore protection visas and offshore humanitarian applicants and immediate family members of Humanitarian and Protection visa holders already in Australia.
Under the Refugee Convention 1951, those outside their country who are afraid of Persecution based on religion, race, gender, minority basis, beliefs, or any other reasons can apply for this Visa. He must be outside his country and cannot get protection from his country.

Any asylum seeker who contacts other country authorities (host state) can opt for this visa type without even paying the application fee.

Resettlement is referred to as the "transfer of Refugees from their countries where they got refuge to Australia for their safety, well being, freedom and protection of fundamental human rights.

The Special humanitarian program has been designed for those who have faced discrimination and violations of fundamental human rights in their home country and has some links to Australia. There are zero fees charged for this application.

Those who have relatives in Australia can apply for a humanitarian resettlement Visa. The processing time for this Visa is quite long as there are many applications for this Visa worldwide, and available Visas are limited.

With this Visa, one can stay in Australia permanently and work/study in Australia. Afterwards, they can promise their families and relatives. Not every Refugee will be eligible for resettlement.

The shortage of places means that UNHCR will only recommend or refer the neediest of cases. The criteria used by UNHCR to select refugees for resettlement include the following:
  • Women who were at risk of sexual abuse and gender-based violence.
  • People whose health is at stake need medical treatment that is not available to them where they are residing.
  • Survivors of violence and trauma and in need of asylum.
  • Children are prone to violence and physical abuse.
  • Old aged Refugees whose best interest lies in resettlement.
When it represents the only means to reunite refugee families who, owing to refugee flight or displacement, find themselves divided by borders or by entire continents, or
When voluntary repatriation or local integration is not available or feasible in the foreseeable future.
Apart from meeting the above criteria of Persecution, an asylum seeker must meet the health requirements, character requirements, and priority will be given according to the severity of violence, the extent to which they are connected with Australia and the capacity of the

Australian community to provide for their settlements. Moreover, it will be accessed that giving asylum to the person is not harmful to Australia's interests. 

Moreover, the visa grant must be consistent with 'the regional and global priorities of the Commonwealth about the settlement of persons in Australia on humanitarian grounds.
These are the main subclasses of this visa type.
  • Refugee (visa subclass 200)
  • In-Country Special Humanitarian (visa subclass 201)
  • Emergency Rescue (visa subclass 203), and
  • The woman at Risk (visa subclass 204).
