Fortnightly Clinics

We offer a fortnightly one-on-one advice sessions at the Hobart Community Legal Centre for refugees, asylum seekers and humanitarian entrants with questions regarding their migration and visa status.

These one on one advice sessions provide the opportunity to sit down with one of our volunteer lawyers or migration agents and have a confidential discussion with us about how we may be able to assist you.

Our advice sessions are run on a fortnightly basis. Appointments for our sessions are necessary, and are arranged through Red Cross Tasmania and CatholicCare Tasmania. If you have a case-worker at Red Cross or CatholicCare, please ask them more about arranging a time to receive some advice from the Tasmanian Refugee Legal Service. If you have not yet made contact with Red Cross or CatholicCare, we strongly recommend you do so as those oragnisations can act as a first point of call for providing support to refugees in Tasmania. Their contact details are as follows:
