RESOURCES

IARC provides a range of free resources to help the community better understand Australian immigration law and know their rights.

Often people only need information, rather than personalised advice, to better understand their situation. Sometimes the information that you need can be found in IARC’s fact sheets without the need to book an appointment for tailored, personalised legal advice.

Part of IARC’s mission is to advocate for a fairer immigration system and we do that, not only by offering advice and information to clients who can’t afford private migration agents, but also by engaging with public policy and law reform debates.
