Migration Amendment (Subclass 200 and 201 Visas) Regulations 2023

The Migration Amendment (Subclass 200 and 201 Visas) Regulations 2023 (the amending Regulations) amend the Migration Regulations 1994 (the Migration Regulations) to allow for the power to certify an applicant for a Subclass 200 (Refugee) visa or a Subclass 201 (In-country Special Humanitarian) visa as being a member of a class of persons specified by the Minister and as being at risk of harm as a result of the person’s membership of that class to be delegated by ‘relevant Ministers’ to senior executive-level staff within certifying agencies (the Attorney- General’s Department (AGD), the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), the Department of Defence and the Australian Federal Police (AFP)).

This is to achieve significant administrative efficiencies for these agencies, which will benefit affected applicants by reducing processing times.
