  1.       Whether you meet the criteria of a refugee;
  2.       Whether you meet the criteria to engage in Australia’s protection obligations;
  3.       What type of evidence you need to submit to support your application.
  4.       What to expect in protection visa interviews;
  5.       Your rights as protection visa applicant and/or protection visa holder.

If you need assistance with interpretation or translation from your language to English, we can assist in organising an interpreter on your behalf.
