  Factsheet: Temporary Protection Visas

 

Temporary Protection Visas and Safe Haven Enterprise Visas are types of temporary visas available to asylum seekers in Australia. Holders of a temporary visa do not have the same access to services, rights and residency or citizenship pathways as refugees who hold a (permanent) Protection Visa. The key difference between asylum seekers eligible for a Protection Visa and those eligible for a temporary visa is method of arrival in Australia, not the legitimacy of their refugee status.
