Our Factsheets Information

Migration and Disability Factsheets

It is often difficult for migrants and refugees to navigate Australia’s complex migration system. For migrants and refugees with disability, this process can be even more troublesome and distressing.

Migrants and refugees with disability (and their families) are often denied Australian visas, as they are unable to meet strict health requirements under the Migration Act 1958.

Visas are also denied due to negative attitudes and complex assessments related to an applicant’s disabilities.

Disability Royal Commission Factsheets

The Disability Royal Commission was established in April 2019 in response to community concern about widespread reports of violence against, and the neglect, abuse and exploitation of, people with disability.

We have put together factsheets and explainer videos to help you, your family, friends and community know more about the Disability Royal Commission.
