    Australia’s Immigration Program has two components:
    - Migration Program for skilled and family migrants
    - Humanitarian Program for refugees and others in refugee–like situations.
    The onshore component of the Humanitarian Program aims to provide options for people who are in Australia and wish to apply for protection (or asylum). The Humanitarian Program has two important functions:
    • it fulfils our international obligations by offering protection to people already in Australia who are found to be refugees according to the Refugees Convention (known as the onshore protection/asylum component)
    • it expresses our commitment to refugee protection by going beyond these obligations and offering resettlement to people overseas for whom this is the most appropriate option (known as the offshore resettlement component).
