The Depa​rtment is supporting Australia’s response to the escalating crisis in Ukraine and is progressing outstanding visa applications from Ukrainian nationals as a priority, across all visa categories.

The Department has finalised hundreds of on-hand applications over recent days.

Anyone wishing to make a new application for a visa to travel to Australia should consider options relevant to their circumstances.

Close family members can apply on behalf of their family members in Ukraine. Registered migration agent can help you with lodging a visa application.

The Prime Minister has also announced that automatic visa extensions for 6 months will be given to Ukrainian nationals in Australia who have a visa expiring before 30 June 2022.

Visa holders do not need to do anything to receive this extension. The Department is contacting visa holders in Australia who have visas expiring soon to make arrangements if they wish to remain in Australia.
