Free legal assistance for Asylum Seekers - Barwon Community Legal Service

The Seeking Refuge Project in Geelong has been working hard to assist Asylum Seekers apply for their protection visas.

The Department of Immigration and Border Protection report that there are approximately 750 Asylum Seekers in Victoria who have not yet applied. Sadly these people are not on our waiting lists. It is extremely important that all Asylum Seekers apply to seek protection in Australia; otherwise they face deportation.
