Summary

Amends the

Migration Act 1958
to: clarify that the Act does not require or authorise the removal of an unlawful non-citizen who has been found to engage protection obligations through the protection visa process unless the decision finding that the non-citizen engages protection obligations has been set aside, the minister is satisfied that the non-citizen no longer engages protection obligations or the non-citizen requests voluntary removal; and ensure that, in assessing a protection visa application, protection obligations are always assessed, including in circumstances where the applicant is ineligible for a visa due to criminal conduct or risks to security.
