Covid Impact Survey: Voicing temporary migrants’ experiences in Australia during COVID-19

Academics at UNSW and UTS are conducting a national survey about the wellbeing of temporary migrants in Australia during COVID-19. 

The Migrant Worker Justice Initiative is running a survey to help understand the challenges faced by international students, backpackers, refugees and other temporary migrants who did not receive federal government support during COVID-19. 

The multiple-choice survey is open for temporary migrants aged 17 and over who were in Australia on 1 March 2020. The survey is anonymous and confidential and takes around 12-14 minutes to complete.

Share your experiences with work, housing and wellbeing during COVID-19 to contribute to important research on migrant workers in Australia and you could win one of 10 $100 Coles Myer vouchers. 

If you have any questions about the research please contact Bassina ( or Laurie (
