Together with other specialized women`s organizations, we participated in the development of the Reform Plan: Removing Safety Barriers for Victims/Survivors of Domestic and Family Violence Who Have Temporary Visas Temporary Visa Holders who experience domestic violence in Australia face several barriers to accessing safety, support and justice.

These barriers are often used by perpetrators of domestic violence to further coerce and control victim-survivors. The National Advocacy Group on Women on Temporary Visas Experiencing Violence calls on the Australian government to adopt recommendations in four key areas: 1. Improve the migration system so that all women on temporary visas who experience domestic, family and sexual violence and their families have access to protection, services and justice. 2. Expand eligibility and access to social security (including health insurance) for women on temporary visas who experience domestic and domestic violence. 3. Expand eligibility and access to social and social housing for women on temporary visas who are victims of domestic and family violence. 4.

Ensure sustainable and long-term funding for technical and legal services that support women on temporary visas who are experiencing or at risk of experiencing domestic, family and sexual violence.
