Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) officers will visit Palmerston in the Northern Territory on May 22 to provide immigration information to people who have overstayed their visas as well as local community leaders and service providers.
A departmental spokesman said the Community Status Resolution Service (CSRS) outreach program enables people in regional communities, who do not have a valid Australian visa or are on a bridging visa, to talk with an immigration officer about specific issues they might be facing.
“Where appropriate, officers will also be able to grant short-term bridging visas to people while they work through their immigration matter,” the spokesman said.
“The department is committed to ensuring the integrity of Australia’s migration and visa programs. People must have a valid visa to remain in the country.”
Individual appointments will be available at Palmerston Library, Goyder Square, The Boulevard, Palmerston NT, from 11.30am to 4.30pm on May 22.
To book an appointment, contact CSRS on 08 8901 6146 or email[email protected]. Walk-ins are also welcome.
