Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT)
When your visa is cancelled or refused you often have limited time to decide how to move forward so it is important to get the right advice early. The decision letter sent by the department should explain whether you have a right to appeal and who can apply for the appeal. In some cases, the only person who can apply for review is the visa applicant or former visa holder, in other cases it can only be the sponsor or a close relative. In some cases, the review applicant must be within Australia at the time of decision or at the time the application for review is lodged, or both.
From 1 July 2015, the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT) has been the only merits review tribunal that can make a decision after which time you have to ask the Minister to consider your case. The AAT is an independent organisation that reviews government decisions.
Your application for review MUST be lodged within the required time frame. The decision letter sent by the department should state the time limit that applies to making an application to AAT. The time limits cannot be extended.
The AAT can decide to:
– affirm DIBP’s decision, meaning that is agrees with DIBP’s decision and it will not be changed;
– set aside DIBP’s decision, meaning that the decision will be changed. In this situation, the AAT has the option of substituting DIBP’s decision with a new decision, or returning the matter to DIBP for reconsideration (see below).
– remit DIBP’s decision, meaning that the matter will be returned to department for reconsideration.
