Migration Support Program

Find out about bringing your family to Australia

The MRC Tas Migration Support Program has two services:

  • Non-commercial (funded) migration support
  • Fee-for-service migration support

Non-commercial (funded) Migration Support

Migrant Resource Centre Tasmania provides funded application assistance for humanitarian ‘split family’ matters.

You may be eligible if:

  • You are a recent humanitarian arrival (within 5 years of visa grant)
  • You are separated from a dependent child or spouse


  • The relationship was declared to Immigration before the grant of your visa

If you believe you are eligible for funded assistance, please email migrationsupport@mrctas.org.au or phone the MRC at 03 6221 0999 for an intake assessment.

Funded by the Australian Government Department of Social Services. Visit www.dss.gov.au for more information.

Fee-for-service Migration Support

MRC Tas also provides commercial migration support to the general public, including newly arrived migrants, for the following matters:

  • Humanitarian migration (Special Humanitarian Programme Proposals/Applications, Onshore Protection, and TPV and SHEV renewals)
  • Family Migration (including Prospective Marriage and Partner Visas)
  • Child Migration (including Orphan Relative and Adoption Visas)
  • Visitor Visas
  • Resident Return Visas
  • Miscellaneous migration matters (feel free to contact us about your matter to find out if we can provide support)

 Fees are negotiated on a case-by-case basis, and will vary depending on:

  • What kind of assistance is needed
  • How complicated the case is, and
  • How much time it will take to provide support.

Please be aware that your first consultation for fee-for-service support will have a flat fee of $150 (or $75 dollars with a valid Student Card or Health Care Card)* that needs to be paid before your scheduled consultation.

*This cost will be deducted from overall costs if you continue to use our services for larger work (e.g. visa application assistance).
