We would like to say thank you so much for assisting me with my working visa application recently. I was so thrilled when you contacted me to advise that a company offered work with them. From then, everything went so quickly. We did all the skills assessment and preparation of my visa, and it was granted less than 6 months. There is nothing I can say, except thank you for helping me achieve my dream in this beautiful country. I would now like to ask for your help again to bring my partner to Australia. Thank you for keeping me updated with the progress and any changes to the rules. I am sure that many people are very happy with your service!

I will be forever grateful to Mbak Indah for taking care of my permanent visa application in Perth. It got approved faster than I thought and I am now happily residing in Australia with the freedom to pursue my dreams. I found ONE derland Consulting through a simple search from the migration agent database. I chose her because I felt I could trust her and because she gave me great advice and handled my application very professionally. She keeps you up to date and it has been a pleasure cooperating with her. I fully recommend her to anyone who is looking for migration consulting services, may it be a study visa, graduate, or permanent visa. You can’t get any better advice and representation than this.

Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT)

What Is The Administrative Appeals Tribunal?

Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT) is for you who are seeking a review for any decisions made by the Australian Government. You would need to make sure that the decisions are allowed to be reviewed. The common types of review people looking for, such as child support, Commonwealth workers’ compensation, migration and refugee visas and visa-related decisions, taxation and many other.

If you are seeking a review with AAT in regards to your rejected visa application, you will have to make sure that you are eligible for it. Most visa decisions that are reviewable were those lodged onshore, but not limited to offshore applications as well.

When Should I Apply For Administrative Appeals Tribunal?

Before you can apply for a merits review, you will need to make sure that you are eligible to do AAT. The easiest way to know is to check in your visa refusal letter and see if it allows you to lodge a merit review. 

If it says that the decision can be reviewed, then yes, you may go to this tribunal process. You will then have to apply for a review within the time limit as referred in your refusal letter. If you pass the time limit, the AAT will not be able to consider your review application.

If you are notified to do one of the options above, you will have to explain your case as detailed as possible and give any evidences to support your claims.
