Visa Refusals, Appeals and Cancellations

What can I do if my Australian visa application is refused or cancelled?

Quick action is essential to address potential visa refusals, cancellations or appeals. Australia has strict immigration laws that are complex and often difficult to navigate. It is important to note that there are strict time limits on appealing a refusal or cancellation decision. In some cases, you may only have 2 or 5 working days to lodge an appeal. We recommend seeking advice as soon as possible to ensure you are able to seek a review or appeal a decision. Prior to cancellation or refusal, you may receive notification from the Department of Home Affairs about potential adverse action on your visa application. It is critical to act quickly to address any notification prior to the Department taking action as strict time limits apply. If you’ve been refused or cancelled a visa for any reason, we can advise on any review rights, as well as any avenues to appeal the decision through the courts. Our services include:
  • Application for reviews of refusal decisions to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal;
  • Application for reviews of cancellation decisions to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal;
  • Appeals to the Minister of Immigration and Border Protection for personal intervention;
  • Applications to the Federal Circuit Court or Federal Court of Australia.
We have a positive track record of successful appeals and court proceedings. Contact us today to speak with our specialised immigration lawyers about an assessment of your eligibility.
