In order to be granted a visa to Australia, you must pass the “Character Test” and be of ‘good character’.

At times, people can fail the character test if they have a significant criminal history under Section 501 of the Migration Act 1958. In these instances, a submission is required to Immigration to show that you are of ‘good character’ and that you will not present a threat to the Australian community.

In other scenarios, even if you may pass the ‘Character Test’ and just have a small conviction or offence, Immigration may still question you about the incident and what occurred. Our firm also has experience in these circumstances where we need to prepare a submission to show that you are of ‘good character’ and that you will not present a threat to the Australian community.

We have vast experience in Character/ S501 submissions, where we have successfully helped people gain their visas and permanent residency.

Character/ S501 submissions are a complex specimen that requires thorough analysis, case law and persuasion to convince Immigration (Department of Home Affairs).
