Aathavan made this Freedom of Information request to Department of Home Affairs

The request was successful.

From: Aathavan

Delivered

Dear Department of Home Affairs (formerly Department of Immigration and Border Protection),

I am seeking the statistics on finalised refusals of temporary protection visas by country of citizenship for the IMA Legacy Caseload process - for each month since the process has begun until present.

As an example, on your website under the heading 'Illegal Maritime Arrival legacy caseload' statistical reports are linked. The lastest report is "IMA Legacy Caseload, Report on the Processing Status and Outcomes, June 2018" https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/Reportsan... In this report there is a Table 3 'Main citizenships – finalised grants.' However there is no equivalent table for 'finalised refusals'. I am seeking the equivalent table for finalised refusals for each month of the IMA Legacy Caseload process until present.

Yours faithfully,

Aathavan

Good afternoon Aathavan

 

I refer to your request for access to documents relating to:

 

I am seeking the statistics on finalised refusals of temporary protection
visas by country of citizenship for the IMA Legacy Caseload process - for
each month since the process has begun until present.

 

As an example, on your website under the heading 'Illegal Maritime Arrival
legacy caseload' statistical reports are linked. The lastest report is

In this report there is a Table 3 'Main citizenships - finalised grants.'
However there is no equivalent table for 'finalised refusals'. I am
seeking the equivalent table for finalised refusals for each month of the

The current due date for your request is 27 August 2018.  Due to the
