Immigration officials visit Alice Springs

Officials from the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) in Darwin will visit Alice Springs next week to assist local people with immigration matters.

Regional outreach officers will be available for individual appointments on July 11 and 12 to explain the options open to employers seeking overseas workers and to provide information on other immigration and citizenship issues.

A departmental spokesman said regional visits enable people in communities outside of the capital cities to sit down and talk about specific issues they might face directly with an immigration officer.

“These appointments attract a range of people, from community groups and small business owners to students and individuals, who might want specific information or just someone to talk them through a complex matter,” the spokesperson said.

“While the department has a great deal of information available over the phone or on the internet, some people may not be aware of recent policy changes, or they may prefer to speak to officers face-to-face, and these visits meet those needs.”

Appointments can be booked by contacting (08) 8901 6129 and will take place at the offices of Multicultural Community Services Central Australia, located at 2/20 Parsons Street, Alice Springs (opposite the ANZ bank).
