Visa Refusals, Cancellations & AAT Appeals

The Department of Home Affairs, Australia has the right to cancel the visa of a tourist if he or she breaks the underlying rules or acts against the guideline mentioned. Usually, the visa is canceled if the principal reason for its grant somehow becomes invalid. For example, if the applicant comes to Australia on an employer-sponsored visa and if he or she is terminated from the job, then the Australian ministry can cancel your visa. Although, you can submit a visa refusal appeal Australia to the proper authority for further action.

Refusal of the visa can occur from the submission of misleading or incorrect documentation in support of the application. The presence of any criminal record is also an opposing factor for the character requirement; another reason for refusal of visa. However, the applicant reserves the right to contest the Australian Visa Refusal. The application can be tendered to the relevant authority for necessary action.

Australian Visa Refusal, Cancellation And Appeal Categories-

  • AAT Appeals and Reviews

The decision of refusal or cancellation of a visa can be reconsidered by a separate merit review authority called an Administrative Appeals Tribunal or AAT. This separate body reviews visa refusal matters; especially character matter, citizenship matter, and other visa refusals by separate authorities.

  • Visa Refusal and Cancellations

Among the four decisions provided by the AAT tribunal, if the judgment of “Affirm” is given out, then it means that the review panel finds the decision correct and is supporting it. In that case, you can go in one of two ways; firstly, you can apply to a federal court to check that any legal error is present in the decision of the department and the ministry.

  • Ministerial Intervention

If the above method is unsuccessful, then you can apply directly to the minister. The minister reserves the power to intervene and grant the visa at his or her discretion. However, the case must be properly presented with strong proof to compel the intervention of the minister.

  • Submission

There is, however, a set time-limit in the appeal against visa refusal. Failure to complete the formalities of the said appeal before the last date will result in the loss of a chance for the appeal.

  • Invitation to Comment-

If information which can cause refusal or denial of visa, is obtained from other persons, then they will be presented with an opportunity to comment on the information. The comment has to be done on a specific date.
