Appeals & Review
If your visa application has been refused, you may wish to have the decision reviewed by the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT).
A merits review conducted by the AAT can set aside, vary, or affirm the previous refusal but can only be brought on certain grounds. Legal advice should be obtained to see if your decision can be reviewed.
In certain circumstances, the legality of the AAT’s decision can also be put forward for judicial review. This is only the case if a ‘jurisdictional error’ has occurred in the decision-making process. For example, this may include the AAT not taking into account all necessary considerations in making their decision.
Having a decision reviewed is a difficult process, so it is important to get legal advice to avoid wasting excessive time and money.
