protection visa being Albino

Hello All

I am an Albino my birth and came to Oz on a student visa and immediately applied for protection visa last november 12 . completed all my health
requirements and checks . had my interview done alomost 4 months back but
have not heard back from the case officer . I have called him several times as he advises me each of the time that the decision will be made ASAP .

Is there some thing to worry , how long do you think it would take . I am from Nepal and do not think it will really take a long time to complete the ASIo checks .
does any one know any other cases in Australia about an albino applying for protection ?
Someone please help ......! I am really worried ..

Sorry, shrestha, yours is the first case I've ever seen discussed here (or on other boards I frequent) about an albino applying for a protection visa. I don't know how much information you're going to find on that specifically.

I had no idea until you just posted that people are killed in some countries just for being albino.

I wouldn't worry too much. Police checks from high-risk countries like Nepal can take upwards of a year. As long as you're legally in Australia, no reason to worry, in my opinion.

Hi Shrestha,
I work in Africa and often see issues with albino people being victimised.
In Tanzania albinos are protected by the police but even that protection does not overcome greed.
Many albino have lost limbs, fingers and even their lives to satisfy the witch doctors "cures"......

I think you will be OK and that it the general "long wait" for the decision....agonisingly slow....!

If your CO is always saying "soon" rather than "we will contact you" then that is a good thing.....delay can probably be just paperwork being processed...???
Or - is there a particular issue you raised about your life in Nepal..? They may have to check that out.....
Is there someone from the Australia Nepalese community who could advise you...?
Nepal Australia Friendship Association
Australia Nepal Friendship Society

Australia is very busy with immigration issues right now....at least you have your student visa current.

In some other countries albino is considered "lucky" or "gifted" by the gods......

Hope you were safe & protected where you were in Nepal....certainly do not travel to (remote) Africa!

Good luck.....

Hi Shrestha
I am from Nepal too and I am planning to bring my family member who is an albino too in a protection visa. Please let me know how did you go and what were the procedures because I am really worried about rejection.

Hi Shrestha -

We're hearing that security checks are severely backlogged now - it's time to be patient as there's literally nothing you can do. If you're worried about having to leave Australia too quickly if DIAC refuses your application, remember that in that case you have the right to a review at the Refugee Review Tribunal, and if that fails you have the right to lodge a request for Ministerial Intervention, so you've got a number of options available even in the worst cases.

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam

Hi Shrestha
Thanks for your reply. According to doctors in Nepal she is very young to be diagnosed the type of albinism. We have to wait couple of months for that.She is 3 months old and her parents want to migrate here as students. I am worried that if they will have trouble applying for PR because of her condition.I am not sure if they can apply offshore protection visa. As new parents they are really worried about how society's going to treat her. We love her dearly and just want best for her future.
