A Tamil asylum seeker family living in the small Queensland town of Biloela have had their appeal to stay in Australia rejected by the Federal Circuit Court.

Earlier in the year Nadesalingam, Priya and their two Australian-born daughters were pulled from a plane overnight, just minutes before they were due to be deported.

Border force officials had previously removed the family from their Queensland home and put them in a Melbourne detention centre.

Tamil Refugee Council spokesman Ben Hillier said that they were handcuffed and taken in separate vans to Melbourne Airport on Tuesday, flown to Perth and placed on a flight to Sri Lanka.

But a last-minute legal intervention resulted in them being removed from the plane before it took off.

It's understood the couple came to Australia separately by boat in 2012 and 2013, following Sri Lanka's civil war.

They settled in Biloela on a bridging visa. (sbs.com.au)

    The so called 'war' ended in 2009. These are economic refugees who tarnish the image of Sri Lanka.

    Prabakaran is the reason why the Tamils are in this pathetic state.

    If you use illegal means of migrating then you have to face the punishment. They should be a shame to even appeal. Because of people like this, the genuine applicants don't stand a chance, because the Australian government thinks all are cheats.
