Albanese foreshadowed an announcement coming later today from acting Home Affairs Minister Jim Chalmers which would allow the family to leave community detention in Perth.
The attempted deportation of the Murugappan family was one of the most contentious issues of the previous government.
The case had been in and out of court for years, with the immigration minister declining to intervene in their favour.
Labor MP Madeleine King, based in the Western Australian seat of Brand, said the family’s return was a “priority”.
“Our commitment is that the Biloela family will go home to Biloela,” she said.
“I understand they have a community there that adores them and would like them to go home.”
