Migration Law

Migration law regulates who has a right to enter and remain in Australia. It is Commonwealth law, so the law is therefore the same across Australia.

Some brief information about major visa categories is provided in this chapter. The law in this area changes frequently, and people considering making a visa application will often need to seek the advice of a migration agent.
