On 1 July 2022, Refugee Advocacy Service of SA (RASSA) will be handing over its migration assistance service to Refugee Legal. This service will now be known as Refugee Legal.

Refugee Legal is Australia’s largest provider of free specialist legal assistance to people seeking asylum and refugees. For more information about Refugee Legal, please refer to this link:

What will this mean

There will be no change for local clients – both current and future – and our services will remain the same. Migration advice and assistance will still be provided as one-on-one service for clients. Services will continue to operate from the same location and with the same staff.

Who we help

We will continue to offer free migration assistance to asylum seekers in South Australia who are eligible to apply for a Temporary Protection Visa (TPV) or a Safe Haven Enterprise Visa (SHEV) under the Federal Government’s “Fast Track Assessment” process. These applicants are often referred to as the “Legacy Caseload”. They arrived in Australia by boat between 13 January 2012 and 31 December 2013.
