Has your visa application been refused? At Results Migration we can help you get back on track by assisting with appealing the refusal, and lodging your application to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT).
Appealing a Visa Decision
Experiencing a visa refusal can be a very stressful period in your life, and most of the time applicants are unaware of their rights and appeal grounds. You normally will have 21 days to lodge an appeal from the date of visa refusal.
The Results Migration team of experienced migration lawyers can assist you with your visa rights and the application process by virtue of drafting submissions to the MRT and giving you a clear pathway for ensuring a successful outcome.
We have represented clients who have been refused based on a large variety of grounds and for all visa types. The MRT has confirmed that the likelihood of success is much greater when using a registered migration agent for your appeal.
Our team will sit down with you and discuss your options, grounds of appeal and likelihood of success. By appointment only on 1800 808 717, or email the team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is the role of the AAT in your visa appeal?
The AAT provides an avenue for you to appeal your visa refusal based on merit, and the relevant statutory provisions of migration law.
The AAT also conduct merit reviews on protection visa decisions made by Home Affairs.
What is “merits review” and how does it affect my original refusal?
Merits review is an avenue whereupon the Tribunal refers to your original visa decision and may make an order for your visa to be reinstated based on certain conditions, and the relevant legislative framework.
What power does the AAT have regarding changing my visa refusal?
The AAT must make a decision that is ‘independent, fair, just, economical, informal and in a timely manner’. They have the power to amend the primary decision makers decision based on the relevant legislative framework.
