Helping You Overturn Visa Refusals and Navigate Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT) Merit Reviews

If the Department recently rejected your visa application, don’t lose hope just yet!

You may have the right to challenge the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT) decision. The Migration Division of the AAT has the power to review certain visa decisions, including those related to business, family, and student visas. They conduct an independent merits review of administrative decisions made under Commonwealth laws, considering all relevant evidence and legislation.

However, not all decisions are reviewable, and the AAT can only review a decision if a law states that it can be reviewed. As a skilled immigration lawyer, my expertise and guidance can be the deciding factor for the outcome of your review process.

What to Do if Your Visa Application is Rejected

If your visa application has been rejected, seek prompt legal assistance. There are time restrictions in lodging an application, and missing deadlines could have disastrous consequences. The AAT may either affirm the Department’s decision, remit it back to the Department with a direction to reconsider or vary the decision or substitute it with its own decision. I will provide valuable insights and advice on presenting your case in the best possible light, increasing your chances of success.

I am a dedicated immigration lawyer with over 20 years of experience who will take the time to assess your situation and determine if your decision can be reviewed. I understand the stress and uncertainty that can come with visa refusals, and I’m here to help you navigate the complex legal process of challenging the decision.
