Registration and Documentation

I have previously registered with UNHCR in another country and need access to documents and information about my claim.

The UNHCR Representation in Canberra cannot assist in obtaining documentation from another UNHCR office. You should contact the office with which you were registered directly.

Contact details for UNHCR offices around the world can be found on the UNHCR website.

I am in Australia and wish to seek asylum. How do I register with UNHCR?

As UNHCR it not involved in determining asylum claims in Australia, it is not possible to register as an asylum-seeker with our office.

UNHCR recommends you seek the advice of lawyer or registered migration agent in preparing your claim.  A list of registered migration agents is available at the Australian Migration Agents Registration Authority.

I wish to receive proof of residence in the Rafha refugee camp in Saudi Arabia.

UNHCR cannot provide proof of residence in the Rafha refugee camp. To request your documents, contact Mr. Ali Hamza from the Political Prisoners’ Foundation via email at [email protected] or via phone at 00964 7830971030.
