On 14 February 2023, the law changed allowing all holders of a TPV or a SHEV that has not been cancelled to be eligible for a Permanent Visa to remain in Australia. The permanent visa is called a Resolution of Status Visa (Subclass 581) (RoS Visa).This information applies to you if you held or applied for a TPV or SHEV before 14 February 2023.
RAILS can help eligible people obtain a RoS visa.
- If you need help or if you want to refer someone to RAILS for help with applying for a RoS visa, complete our referral form and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org: TPVSHEV Conversion referral v2.pdf (rails.org.au)
- If you have any questions, call us on (07) 3846 9333 or email email@example.com
We strongly recommend that you do not communicate with the Department of Home Affairs until you have spoken to one of our lawyers. It can be easy to make a mistake and this could impact your visa or application.
The below video contains information about RoS visas, eligibility and how RAILS can help.
