In migration matters, almost all the onshore decisions to refuse or cancel a visa are reviewable by Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT). The AAT is an independent review authority empowered to review a range of administrative decisions made by various government departments and authorities under federal law. Most visa decisions previously reviewed by Refugee Review Tribunal (RRT) and Migration Review Tribunal (MRT) are now reviewed by AAT.
Whenever the minister refuses or cancels a visa, the notification of the decision contains the information about the review rights. The notification of decision describes the reason for refusal or cancellation, whether it can be reviewed, the time in which the application for review can be made and who can apply for the review. We at Mountview Migration Services can help you to lodge a review application in the prescribed timeframe.
