Deportation changes for 501s – Australia to change approach to New Zealanders facing deportation.

01 February 2023

The Citizenship & Immigration Minister Andrew Giles is directing his department to take a “common sense approach” when dealing with New Zealanders convicted of offences in Australia.

More consideration will be given to:

  • The length of time someone has lived in Australia.
  • The impact on their family members in Australia, especially their children.
  • Whether they resided in Australia during and since their formative years.

Oz Kiwi thanks Minister Giles for making this very positive reform.
