Ministerial Intervention

Victorian family saved from deportation.

Immigration minister David Coleman intervened in a Victorian family’s situation where the father had failed the government immigration health requirement. Failing to meet the health requirement the family was set to be deported.

The community came in support of the family and started a change petition which attracted around 90,000 signatures. That brought focus of the government to this family’s critical situation and the minister intervened to grant permanent residency.

Government has relaxed the regulations and increased the threshold of health cost to $49,000.
