The Department of Home Affairs to support ‘Australia’s response to the escalating crisis in Ukraine’ is prioritizing the processing of outstanding visa applications from Ukrainian citizens, across all visa categories. The Prime Minister has announced automatic visa extensions for 6 months for Ukrainian citizens in Australia, who have a visa that is due to expire before 30 June 2022.
To receive the extension, the visa holders are not required to take any steps, the Department of Home Affairs is contacting the visa holders to make arrangements for them if they want to stay in Australia. Also, close family members can apply on behalf of their family members in Ukraine.
