Explanatory Memorandum

Migration Legislation Amendment (Enabling Permanent Protection) Bill 2006

 

This Private Senator's Bill seeks to remove the provisions in the Migration Act 1958 which prevent people on Temporary Protection Visas (TPV) who have been convicted of certain legal offences from being eligible to receive a permanent Protection Visa when their TPV expires.  Currently, such people can only be issued with a further TPV unless the Minister chooses to use their discretion to waive this requirement.
