Hello all i hope I can find someone who is able to help me about our refusal from Australia please take a look on this decision

we are an Iraqi family living in Lebanon 6 persons fled from ISIS

Findings and Reasons I have considered the application for a Refugee and Humanitarian (Class XB) visa, supporting documentation and other evidence against the legislative requirements contained in the Migration Act 1958 and the Migration Regulations 1994.
Class XB contains five visa subclasses (subclasses 200, 201, 202, 203 and 204). To be granted a visa in this class, the applicant must meet all of the primary criteria in one of the subclasses. I am required to assess the applicant against all of the subclasses in class XB.
For all class XB visa subclasses, it is a requirement that there be compelling reasons for giving special consideration to granting the applicant a visa.
As the applicants have been assessed as meeting time of application criteria at 200.211(1), 201.211(1), 202.211(1), 203.211(1) and 204.211(1) I must assess the application against the requirement in subclauses 200.222(1), 201.222(1), 202.222(2), 203.222(1)(b) and 204.224(1)(b) that there be compelling reasons for giving special consideration to granting the applicant a visa, having regard to the following factors:
a) the degree of persecution or discrimination to which the applicant is subject in their home country
b) the extent of the applicant's connection with Australia
c) whether or not there is any suitable country other than Australia that can provide for the applicants settlement and protection and
d) the capacity of the Australian community to provide for the settlement of persons such as the applicant in Australia.
a. Degree of persecution or discrimination
The applicants have demonstrated that they are subject to some degree of persecution or substantial discrimination in their home country.
b. Connection with Australia
The applicants have demonstrated a connection to Australia through their proposer - the applicant's sister - as indicated in the application for a Humanitarian visa.
c. Other suitable country
There is no evidence that there is another country available for the applicants' settlement and protection from persecution or discrimination.
d. Capacity of Australian community
Australia has limited capacity for humanitarian resettlement and cannot resettle all people who apply for a Refugee and Humanitarian visa.
I accept that the applicants are subject to some degree of persecution or discrimination in their home country and have some connection with Australia. Although there is no evidence that there is another country available for the applicants' settlement and protection, Australia does not have the capacity to provide for permanent settlement of all applicants at this time.
Weighing these factors together, I am not satisfied that there are compelling reasons for giving special consideration to granting the applicant a Class XB visa. I find that the primary applicant does not satisfy subclauses 200.222(1), 201.222(1), 202.222(2), 203.222(1) and 204.224(1). As the primary applicant did not satisfy these subclauses, I have also assessed the secondary applicants against them. I find that none of the secondary applicants satisfies subclauses 200.222(1), 201.222(1), 202.222(2), 203.222(1) and 204.224(1).
Assessment against secondary criteria
For all Class XB subclasses, it is a requirement (in clauses 200.311, 201.311, 202.311, 203.311 and 204.311) that secondary applicants made a combined application with a person who meets the primary criteria and be either a member of the family unit or a member of the immediate family of the person, depending on the specific requirement the person meets. As none of the applicants satisfies primary criteria, I find that none of the applicants satisfies clauses 200.311, 201.311, 202.311, 203.311 and 204.311.
Decision On the basis of all of the information available to me, including the documents and information the applicants provided, I find that the criteria for the grant of a Refugee and Humanitarian (Class XB) visa are not met by the applicants.
I find that the applicants do not satisfy the primary criteria in clauses 200.222, 201.222, 202.222, 203.222, 204.224 of Schedule 2 to the Migration Regulations 1994, nor do they satisfy the secondary criteria in clauses 200.311, 201.311, 202.311, 203.311 and 204.311. As such I have not assessed the remaining criteria and the application has been refused.

what are the criteria of this visa to be available in us to consider us as refugees for this type of visa so we know if we are eligible or no so we do not get false hope
thanks
sorry for your situation where does your sister live?
