MEDIA STATEMENT | GIVE DISPLACED UKRAINIANS CERTAINTY

July 27, 2022

The Albanese Labor Government needs to back its words with actions when it comes to supporting the people of Ukraine.

This Sunday, the deadline will expire for displaced Ukrainians to make an in-country application for an Australian humanitarian visa (subclass 786 Temporary Humanitarian Concern (THC) visa).

The Labor Government has already twice extended the deadline by just two weeks for Ukrainians to make a visa application.

At the opening of Parliament, the Prime Minister said the Labor Government would show solidarity with the people of Ukraine. Now is the time.

The Labor Government must extend the deadline for displaced Ukrainians to access the humanitarian visa until the conflict ends.
