So long as Australia sees itself a a part of the World community and gets involved in wars be they right or wrong. and expects to be treated in a reasonable fashion by the rest of the world, then Yes they Should. That is like asking " should Australians be compassionate people". there is nothing wrong with giving a helping hand to your fellow man. The people that seek refuge in Australia end up as Australian as the rest of us.

It is viewed as a obligation on a prosperous nation to allow some asylum seekers in and help them start a better life. Australia lets in about 14,000 refugees a year.

Are refugees allowed in Australia?

This seems like such a simple question... yet requires quite a complex response. Australia is a signatory to the UNHCR Refugee Convention making them responsible to assist refugees seeking asylum. As a matter of security and border protection this is required to be achieved through controlled entry into Australia. The problem arises when asylum seekers use boats in an attempt to reach Australian shores. This is not controlled and could pose possible threats to the community. Before being allowed into Australia it is a requirement that they be in possession of a visa allowing them to enter the country. There is no doubt that Australia needs to take asylum seekers in, but not through their unprecedented arrivals. So to answer your question, yes refugees are allowed in Australia so long as they have a visa. If they have no such document they will be held in detention indefinitely until they are granted a visa.
