Migration Legislation Amendment (Temporary Protection Visas Repeal)

Bill 2006

 

This Bill eliminates the Temporary Protection Visa (TPV), which was introduced in November 1999 via the Migration Amendment Regulations 1999 (No.12).  All Protection Visas will provide permanent residency, as was the case prior to 1999.
