The Humanitarian Program has two components:
  • The onshore (asylum or protection) component offers protection to people in Australia who meet the refugee definition in the United Nations Refugees Convention;
  • The offshore (resettlement) component offers resettlement for people outside Australia who are in need of humanitarian assistance.
The offshore Humanitarian Program has two categories:
  • The Refugee category for people subject to persecution in their home country;
  • The Special Humanitarian Program (SHP) category for people who, while not being refugees, are subject to substantial discrimination amounting to a gross violation of their human rights in their home country.
    • People who wish to be considered for an SHP visa must be living outside their home country and be proposed for entry by an Australian citizen, permanent resident, eligible New Zealand citizen, or an organisation operating in Australia.

These categories go beyond our international obligations and have been introduced to enhance our assistance to those in need.
