Community Support Program (CSP)

The Australian Migrant Resource Centre (AMRC) specialises in settlement, community development, training, and employment initiatives for migrants, especially those of refugee background wherever they reside in metropolitan Adelaide and regional South Australia. We partner with other organisations in ours and other states and territories to provide a number of services from eight MRCs in metropolitan Adelaide and regional South Australia.

AMRC has been selected as an Approved Proposing Organisation (APO) contracted by Department of Home Affairs to propose prospective applicants who are in humanitarian situations overseas.

Expression of Interest for CSP program is now open.

To begin your visa application under CSP, you must first complete and submit an Expression of Interest (EOI).

Please ensure that you understand and meet the eligibility criteria before lodging an EOI.

For the AMRC to consider your application, you must: 

  • meet the eligibility requirements for CSP 
  • be a resident of South Australia – AMRC is NOT accepting Expressions of Interest from INTERSTATE proposers.
  • not be dependent on Centrelink payments 
  • have one clear sponsor, who will be responsible throughout the process. Changing sponsors at any stage of the CSP process will result in disqualification from the process and any fees paid will not be refunded. 
  • only complete one EOI per household 
  • answer all EOI questions honestly. Where misleading information is provided, the EOI will be rejected. 

NOTE: Providing misleading information at any stage of the process will result in disqualification from the CSP process, and any fees paid may not be refunded. 

EOIs are valid for a maximum of 6 months from the date of lodgement. If an EOI becomes invalid, the applicant will need to lodge a new EOI, if they wish to be considered for the program. 

Before you begin your expression of interest please also read the following:

  • AMRC Expression of interest fee is $280
  • AMRC is not accepting any EOIs from the interstate sponsors
  • AMRC will not accept an EOI proposed by or on behalf of an irregular maritime arrival (IMA) who arrived on or after 13 August 2012
  • You must have the following documents ready to upload with your EOI
    • Driving License
    • Copy of Passport/Citizenship/Visa
    • Notice of assessment (Tax Return) for the last two financial years
