Visa Cancelled – Refused

Appeals – Waivers – Character Issues 

The Department of Immigration has provision to cancel visas in circumstance (not limited to) for example if a visa condition is breached, if an applicant has a ‘character issue’, if an applicant provides a false or bogus document and for other numerous and/or various reasons.

In certain circumstances, a visa that is cancelled or refused can be appealed to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT) but this must be done within a strict timeframe.

The refusal notice will indicate whether a decision is reviewable and the timeframe in which the appeal needs to be made. If a valid appeal is made the AAT will reconsider the application based on the merits of the application.

The AAT can substitute a new decision, vary the decision, remit the matter back to the Department of Immigration again or affirm the decision of the case officer. The AAT also has the power to hand down a decision based on submission and paperwork provided.

If you have had a visa refused, in certain circumstances, you may seek to have a review of the decision at the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT).

It is critical to make review applications within the prescribed timeframe given as outlined in the communication received from the Department of Immigration.

For an assessment as to the legality of that cancellation and any possible options for an appeal, or a review of the decision, please call us as soon as you receive that decision.

If you are in Australia and you have been issued a Notice of Intention to Cancel (NOICC) by the Department of Immigration there may be options available to you to prevent that cancellation from taking place, but each situation will need to be assessed on its merits.

Once again though, meeting the timeframe given, as outlined in the correspondence received from the Department of Immigration is critical, so once again ensure you contact us immediately on receipt of that notification.

ASC Migration agents are highly skilled and experienced. Our principal migration agent has been successfully representing clients since 2003. Your matter will benefit from that experience.

Please order the service ‘Refusal – Online Consultation Analysis and Report’ Here

The clock is ticking!


Detailed consultations can be conducted by ‘Skype’, telephone or email.

Visa Application Review

When you just want a professional’s second opinion.

Our Visa Application Review service is part of our desire to give our clients more choice and more convenience. The Application Review is prepared for you once you have completed your own visa application. We will critically analyise this and give you our professional feedback, by providing you with a detailed and visa-specific written report.

This analytical feedback is an assessment of your application and the support evidence you are providing, and a detailed analysis of any additional evidence that should be provided to enhance your application, and/or your sponsors (if applicable).

The cost of a Visa Application Review is great value and costs only $751. This could save you $$$$’s, because all Department of Immigration and Border Protection Visa Application fees are usually non-refundable, so investing in a ‘Visa Application Review’ will be very cost-effective.

Please use the form below to upload your application form to our server, then please CLICK HERE to be redirected to our ‘Specialist Visa Services’ page. Please scroll down to PLEASE COMPLETE YOUR DETAILS TO ORDER THE APPROPRIATE SERVICE BELOW to complete your contact details. Then order the service ’Pre-Lodgment Visa Application Review & Reportand remit your payment. An Australian Registered Migration Agent will contact you thereafter to begin processing your requirements.

    Visa Application Review

    DIY & Migration Checklists

    Detailed and Visa Specific

    For those who are making their own application and they just
    need to know what support documents and evidence is required.

    The Migration Checklist service is our most recent addition to the growing number of reasons more people are choosing ASC Migration. We understand that some people do want to do their own application, so save yourself time, as everything you need to know is right here and only a few clicks away.

    For the very low fee of just AUD$282, we can provide you with comprehensive lists outlining all the evidence you currently need to provide to enhance your application.

    Your application fees will vary depending on the type of application or service you are applying for and how many secondary applicants there are. Consequently, these can amount to a significant outlay, and please be aware that in most circumstances they are non-refundable if you make a mistake. A migration checklist, however, will ensure you provide the support documents currently required.

    To order a Migration Checklist please CLICK HERE. 

    When you are redirected, please scroll down to ‘PLEASE COMPLETE YOUR DETAILS TO ORDER THE APPROPRIATE SERVICE BELOW’, and thereafter ‘tick’ the box ‘Migration Checklist’, then the ‘Blue’ button. You will then be redirected to complete the payment process, and a migration professional will contact you to gather specific details regarding your matter.

    Remember:
    The Department of Home Affairs does not offer refunds for incorrectly applied for, or rejected visa applications, which is why more people are choosing ASC Migration to enhance the application before its lodgment.
