If your visa has been refused or cancelled, you can generally apply for Review at the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT), formerly known as the Migration Review Tribunal.

The AAT is independent to Immigration (Department of Home Affairs) and takes a completely fresh, objective examination to your particular case. While the AAT will still see what information, documents were presented to Immigration, it provides you a NEW, fresh opportunity and chance to present your case, information and documents to get your visa approved.

It is critical to ensure that your Merits Review (appeal) application is submitted within the correct time limit to the AAT. Generally the time limit is 21 days from the date your visa is refused or cancelled (this time limit varies according to what visa is refused/cancelled).

Once your visa has been refused or cancelled, it is important to review the decision record from Immigration and understand what led to your visa being refused or cancelled. We will sit down with you to exactly pinpoint and devise a strategy as to what you can do differently or better to ensure that your visa is re-instated.

We will devise a comprehensive submission and represent you at the Tribunal hearing to ensure that your visa is re-instated and granted.

We have vast experience in Tribunal hearings, where we have successfully helped people gain their visas and permanent residency.
