Appeals and Reviews

Policy interpretation is the key element for the case officers to make the decision your visa application. The migration regulations sometimes look straightforward. However, it could be a nightmare if regulations were misunderstood by the visa applicant or even by the case officers. This may lead to visa refusal.

In some cases, you may be eligible to re-apply for the visa and try to fill those gaps of concern. However, sometimes you don’t have many options but to make an appeal to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT). Hence, this is not over yet if you’ve decided to take this matter to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT).

Member may use similar discretionary powers were given to the primary decision maker before making the decision. After careful consideration, AAT may affirm, vary, set aside or remit the primary decision.
