Unlawful Non-Citizen under false identity

October 12, 2021 - Unreported Cases

Visa granted  

The applicant had entered Australia in 1981 using a friend’s identity. The applicant had been an unlawful non-citizen for over 32 years. In March 2011 a protection visa was lodged as a pathway for a Ministerial intervention request. An affirmed decision was attained from MRT.

ISL on the applicant’s behalf requested intervention to the Immigration Minister. In December 2013, the minister intervened in this matter and granted the applicant the visa due to compassionate circumstances. These circumstances included the applicant integrating into Australian society and having a significant role in the Australian community. There was also a concern for the applicant’s emotional and psychological well-being.
