For most visas to Australia, you must NOT provide any false, misleading or bogus information or documents to Immigration.

If Immigration find out that any information or documents are false, misleading or bogus that have been provided, you will fail to satisfy Public Interest Criteria 4020 (PIC 4020).

In cases where false, misleading or bogus information/documents have been identified by Immigration, they will send out a notification to you advising you that your visa may be refused or cancelled due to provision of this false information/documents.

Under Migration Law, a waiver exists if there are circumstances that favour an Australian citizen, Australian Permanent Resident, eligible New Zealand citizen or Australia’s interests whereby you can still satisfy PIC 4020 and have your visa granted. That is, despite having provided false information/documents, you can still have your visa granted if you can show that your case has circumstances that favour an Australian citizen or Australia’s interests.

We have vast experience in PIC 4020 waiver submissions, where we have successfully helped people gain their visas and permanent residency.

PIC 4020 waiver submissions are a complex specimen that requires thorough analysis, case law and persuasion to convince Immigration (Department of Home Affairs).
