For those who have applied and is planning on applying for a visa for Australia, or even planning to sponsor someone from overseas, there are rights and obligations that you should be aware of to know your duties and responsibilities as a migrant and as a sponsor, and also to educate yourself about your rights as a migrant and as a sponsor.
DIBP provides, through their website, an information booklet "Your rights and obligations – immigration facts for workers" for everybody to educate themselves about their Rights and Obligations. It states that the information booklet covers basic protections and entitlements, work rights, visa choices, employer obligations and using a migration agent for overseas workers.
Relaying and receiving information can be tough, especially when it comes to applicants that have limited English, so DIBP provided translated versions of the information booklet for convenience. DIBP states that the information booklet is translated into several languages based on the main nationalities of vulnerable or illegal workers in Australia.
