Migration: I am an applicant in detention

icon for overview

If you are in detention, your application will usually be expedited. This means your case will be given priority and your matter will be listed for a hearing date as soon as possible.

The Judge hearing your case will decide whether you need to attend in person. Sometimes, arrangements are made for you to attend in person; sometimes, if the detention centre can accommodate a video-link, you might attend your hearing remotely.

For more information about attending remotely see Electronic hearings.
