No Permanent Protection Visas to be granted to people who arrive in Australia without visas.
THIS is the excuse given for no releases from detention since Morrison took over.
People in detention have to sign this Code of Behaviour before release on Community Detention or a Bridging E Visa (BVE) is started- just another fence to jump to be released.
Nothing new here- if an asylum seeker breaks the law- just like anyone else there are consequences.
Asylum seekers have to notify DIBP of there address at all times- cannot travel without notifying- nothing new here.
As for police being notified of asylum seekers residential addresses- I am sure that they have more to do than check 30,000 households!!

Issue 2013.122 – 13 December 2013
- New Code of Behaviour for certain Bridging E Visa Holders (detainees)
- Disclosure of information to police to check criminal conduct of BVE holders
- No Permanent Protection Visa to be granted to people who arrive in Australia without visas
New Select Legislative Instrument SLI 2013 No. 269 [F2013L02102] Migration Amendment (Bridging Visas—Code of Behaviour) Regulation 2013 establishes an enforceable code of behaviour for Bridging E (Class WE) visa (‘BVE’) holders.
This Amendment Regulation creates a Public Interest Criterion (PIC 4022) that requires certain applicants for a BVE to sign a code of behaviour to be eligible for the grant of the BVE. The PIC applies to applicants for BVEs who are over 18 and hold, or previously held, a BVE granted by the Minister under section 195A [Minister may grant detainee visa (whether or not on application] of the Act.
Where the BVE holder has signed a code of behaviour, the Amendment Regulation also creates a visa condition  that requires the holder to abide by the code of behaviour that they have signed.
The code of behaviour is specified by the Minister in an instrument in writing.
The Amendment Regulation also prevents a person whose BVE has been cancelled due to criminal conduct or a breach of the code of behaviour from applying for a further BVE. The Amendment Regulation also prevents a person who previously held a visa that has been cancelled on a ground specified in paragraph 2.43(1)(p) or (q) from applying for a further BVE. Broadly, paragraphs 2.43(1)(p) and (q) provide grounds to cancel BVEs held by persons who:
- are convicted of, or charged with, an offence in Australia or another country; or
- are the subject of an Interpol notice relating to criminal conduct or public safety threats; or
- are under investigation by an agency responsible for the regulation of law enforcement or security.
The introduction of a code of behaviour will make persons who receive a visa due to an exercise of the Minister’s power under section 195A of the Act more accountable for their actions.
This amendment is in force from 14 December 2013.
The changes regarding the Code of Behaviour apply to an application made, but not determined, before 14 December 20123, and to applications made on or after 14 December 2013.
The provisions preventing the application for a BVE by persons who have had a BVE cancelled for breaches of Conditions 8564 or 8566, or who have had a BVE cancelled under Regulation 2.43(1)(p) or (q) apply to applications made on or after 14 December 2013.
