Appealing a Decision

Due to the complex nature of Australian migration laws, visa applications can often be refused, or existing visas may be cancelled.

When things go wrong, it is important to seek professional advice as quickly as possible. There are strict timeframes to respond to visa refusals or cancellations, so don't delay in getting professional advice. There's a good chance that there may be something that can be done (via the appeals process). But if you wait too long, this chance will be gone.

Reach out to us for assistance

Regional Migration Australia can assist with preparing your appeal application, advise on what further documentation may be required and prepare a detailed submission outlining your matter for review. If required, we may attend your hearing and will also take care of any requests for information until a decision is made by the review body (Administrative Appeals Tribunal).

We often come across applications that have not been handled appropriately at the time of application (such as where an applicant attempts the process without assistance of a migration agent or where insufficient information has been provided). We have successfully helped clients have their applications remitted back to the Department for reconsideration, through the appeal process.

If you have received a visa refusal or cancellation, you can send us a copy of your decision record for review. We will provide you with our opinion on your chances of successfully appealing the decision, and guide on your options.

Regional Migration Australia can assist with any appeals that are to be reviewed before the Administrative Appeals Tribunal.

Following an unfavourable outcome on your visa application, it is essential you act quickly. Time is of the essence when it comes to immigration matters. It can mean the difference between having options to continue your life in Australia, or not.
