Government grants hundreds of temporary visas to Palestinians


The Australian government has granted hundreds of temporary visas to Palestinians in the weeks since Israel began its bombing campaign of Gaza, which has killed thousands of civilians and flattened large swathes of the densely populated strip.

The Department of Home Affairs has confirmed 860 visas have been approved for Palestinians with connections to Australia between October 7 to November 20.

In a statement, a spokesperson for the Department of Home Affairs said: "Australia is doing all it can to support Australians, their immediate family members and a number of long-term visa holders still in Gaza who wish to depart."

"People who obtain visas to Australia are subject to appropriate security checks."

The ABC has spoken to Australians who have been anxiously sponsoring visa applications for family members and relatives in Gaza who have endured six weeks of Israeli bombardment.

It is understood the Australian government has been issuing visitor visas (subclass 600) that allow people to remain in the country for three to 12 months.

One man the ABC spoke to applied for visitor visas on behalf of more than 50 relatives in Gaza.

He added that most of those applicants had been approved by the government.

Another person who applied for visitor visas on behalf of her family members said a number of men between 18 and 50 were being denied passage at the Rafah border crossing, even though they had been approved for a visa by the Australian government.

Palestinian-Australian woman Ola Aladassi said people fleeing the decimated Gaza Strip would need support once they arrived in Australia.

"Most of these people come here without any documentation with them, without any money with them," she said.

"They come from this very bad experience in the war in Gaza … we need help looking after all of these people."

While those on visitor visas are allowed to engage in study for up to three months, they are not allowed to work.


She expressed concern about the ability for those who seek safety in Australia to be able to return to their homeland.

"Can these people be guaranteed to go back?" she asked.

The article says most don't have any documentation yet somehow they passed security checks.

They don't have any money not allowed to work does AnAl expect taxpayers to support them? Will they get priority housing while Australians are homeless?

No muslim country will take them what makes AnAl think we want them here?

Egypt considers Hamas to be a terrorist group that is why Egypt blockades Gaza.

Jordan doesn't want them last time they let Palestinians in they tried to overthrow the Monarchy. Jordan shelled their refugee camps before evicting them.

Totally illegal but Anal makes it legal.
Pushing aside Politics just to please the Media and it's Victimhood Narrative here.
Will they be living with all the Homos, Trannies & ALP Ministers?
I bet a lot of them are Hamas looking for an escape option.
Great! Bring the Terrorists here.  Roll Eyes Angry

...I mean, where are they going to live, considering there's nowhere to live for lots of Australians here already?

Maybe Anal is going to give them 'free' housing, like he's giving them a free entry into the country.

This is pathetic.

.. clutching the viper to your own bosom.... well - affirmative action has introduced countless 'language speakers' into immigration, customs and other areas of government and given them promotions.... they can approve those they want....

On the other hand...



A decorated SAS veteran and his family are in limbo after the Department of Home Affairs refused to grant his Thai-born wife a visa.

The soldier – who was awarded the nation’s second-highest military honour, the Medal for Gallantry, for his conduct in the Afghanistan War – has been living in Thailand for eight years while he works as a FIFO security contractor in the resources sector.

He has had to return to Australia for treatment for his declining mental health, but Home Affairs refused to give his wife a partner visa because the soldier was unable to secure criminal clearances from some of the countries he had worked in.

While the couple and their two Australian citizen children have been based in Thailand for eight years, his work has taken him around the world and he was unable to source the required paperwork from Iraq, Papua New Guinea, Ghana and Nigeria.

A briefing note prepared by RSL Victoria spells out the family’s frustrations with the conduct of the department, and what appears to be an error in the way the application was assessed. The former soldier has been working to secure the partner visa since September 2021, but has now been told to restart the application process from scratch. It means his wife is unlikely to secure a visa before 2027 at the earliest.

He was formally notified late last year that his wife’s application had been refused due to the lack of police clearances, triggering a 21-day window for an appeal to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal. According to the RSL note, the man’s health had worsened during that period and he was unable to lodge a response in time.

The RSL briefing note details how the police clearance certificate request is not mandatory, while it says there are provisions in the regulations for Immigration Minister Andrew Giles to exercise ministerial discretion and approve a sponsor if there are compelling circumstances.

“This discretion extends to permit the minister to approve sponsorship of people with significant criminal histories,” the RSL Victoria note says. “It would be outrageous if such a discretion was not exercised to support and assist an Australian war hero with no criminal history.”

A prudent and competent visa assessment officer should have applied the facts of the case to the ample body of guiding legal precedent to reach a conclusion that while (the former soldier) may have temporarily visited these countries for the purposes of undertaking short-term work assignments of around 20 days, he never should have been regarded as living in them,” the RSL note says.

Mr Giles’s office has advised that the minister is unable to take any action until the case has been assessed by the AAT. Given the window to appeal the decision to the AAT has closed, the man will have to start a new application at a cost of $8850. That will take up to 32 months to process.

Australia has a long history of terrorism since 1788 against Australian-born residents.

Please don't thank me. Effusive fawning and obeisance of disciples, mendicants, and foot-kissers embarrass me.
