About us 

The Immigration Advice and Rights Centre (IARC) is a community legal centre (CLC) with more than 35 years experience in migration law and policy. We are a non-profit organisation and experts in immigration law. We assist people to navigate Australia's complex immigration system by providing free legal advice, information and casework services. Our clients are people on temporary visas or with uncertain visa status.

Centres like ours exist to provide free legal advice and education to some of the most vulnerable people in our community. We successfully assist more than one thousand clients every year to reunite with their families, leave unsafe relationships and stand up to workplace exploitation. We have three legal practices that focus on different areas of law: Immigration and Domestic Violence, Visas and Citizenship and Visa Assist for Migrant Workers. IARC is the only specialist CLC in Australia that assists people on all immigration, refugee, citizenship, and visa matters.

What we do

  • We provide free expert legal advice and assistance in all areas of immigration, refugee, and citizenship law.
  • We lobby for law reforms and policy changes to improve Australia’s immigration system, so it does not unfairly disadvantage vulnerable people.
  • We provide community education about complex legal issues to help frontline service workers understand law changes that impact their clients.
  • We run outreach programs at shelters and support centres to make legal and visa advice more accessible.

Are donations tax deductible?


Will I receive a receipt for my donation?

Yes, as soon as your donation is processed.

We acknowledge the Aboriginal peoples across New South Wales on whose lands we work, and give particular acknowledgment to the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation, where our office sits. We pay our respects to the traditional owners of this country, and to Elders, past and present. In doing so, we recognise our own heritage as settlers to this land and understand this responsibility we have in advocating for change for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and in protecting the land, water, and air for future generations. Always was, always will be Aboriginal land.
