Information for asylum seekers

Welcome to the asylum seekers’ information pages.

Getting a job on a Bridging Visa is not easy for people who have recently arrived in Australia. How to apply for work, how to behave in a job interview, what employers expect…  As an asylum seeker, you may find that looking for work in Australia is complicated and confusing.

You may want to study first and will find that many educational options are not open to asylum seekers. Victoria offers access to the Vocational Education and Training system at concession rates, but only if you are referred by the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre.

This website will help you better understand how to look for work, keep a job, and access education options in Victoria and Australia.
