Impairment tables for Carers Visa

Currently waiting for a response from Department of Home Affairs, they should respond promptly and normally no later than (details).

Dear Department of Home Affairs,

In the Migration Regulations 1994 reference is made to Impairment Tables (Part 1, Division 1.2, Section 1.15AA):

(1)(b)(iii) the impairment has, under the Impairment Tables (within the meaning of subsection 23(1) of the Social Security Act 1991), the rating that is specified in the certificate; and

The Impairment Tables have variously been referenced elsewhere without actual reference to the Table themselves (Migration Legislation Amendment (2016 Measures No. 3) Regulation 2016; Commonwealth of Australia Gazette No. GN 47,25 November 1998 and Migration (IMMI 17/126: Impairment Rating) Instrument 2017).

Would you kindly provide documentation pertaining to the Impairment Tables in their current form as used with regards to the assessment for a Carers Visa under the Migration Regulations 1994. Ideally you would provide the Impairment Tables themselves with the scoring system and with reference to their origin.

Yours faithfully,


Department of Home Affairs
