How do Australia’s settlement services compare with the rest of the world? 

Australia is one of the 28 countries in the world that offer resettlement programmes and consistently appears among the top three resettlement countries in the world.

States like Australia that offer settlement services to assist with resettlement provide legal and physical protection, including access to civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights to refugees and migrants that are similar to these services provided to their citizens.

Settlement services provided by Australia are world class and include a range of support programs and services that very few other countries provide. Whilst there is always room for improvement, Australians can be proud of the support we provide to help assist newly arrived people from refugee and migrant backgrounds to settle in Australia.
