Hazara Federal Court Appeal

Since meeting the requirements as early as 2014, the men have not progressed to receiving a citizenship ceremony. For more information about the case please visit the ABC website.
We have recently had a lot of inquiries relating to ImmiCards from our clients. ImmiCards are official, secure immigration credentials that contain a photograph and personal details such as surname, given names, date of birth and sex.
ImmiCards assist the card holder to prove their visa or immigration status and enrol for services they are entitled to. The ImmiCard number allows visa holders and registered Australian organisations to check visa entitlements and status information, including visa grant date, through the Visa Entitlement Verification Online system.
There are various ImmiCards available and we can assist you to determine which one you require. If you would like more information about ImmiCards please contact our friendly staff who can assist with your inquiry or visit the Department’s website to find out more
YOU MUST KEEP YOUR IMMICARD WITH YOU AT ALL TIMES
