4 Must-Dos if Your Australian Visa Application is Rejected
What Should You Do If Your Australian Visa Application is Rejected.
So you want to visit or migrate to Australia. You’ve scoured the websites to look for the right visa, you’ve gathered the vast amounts of documentation, passed all the tests, jumped through all the numerous hoops, and yet your Australian Visa Application is rejected.
Take a look at the 4 top tips from our registered migration expert, Mrs. Indah Melindasari for when you get the crushing news your visa application has been rejected:
1. Understand why your visa application is rejected or refused
You would have been told that your Australian visa application is rejected by receiving a refusal letter from immigration.
In that letter, it gives you the reasons why it was refused.
There may be one reason, or maybe a number of reasons.
Make sure you understand what the letter is saying, so that if you choose reapply, you can get it right.
2. Gather the information that was lacking in your first application
If you want to try for an Australian visa again, you must ensure that you focus on the reasons they gave for rejecting your original application convince them that they made the wrong decision.
What is often the case, is that immigration doesn’t believe that you have enough incentive to go back home once your Australian visa has expired.
In this case, you will need to gather more evidence that you have reasons to return home e.g. close family bonds, house rental/ ownership, pets, job, friendship group, your favourite bicycle!
Literally anything you can think of. There is no silly answer here.
You need to convince then you will return home.
Or your Australian visa application is rejected, again.
3. Ensure you are actually eligible for this visa before you apply
Are you sure you’ve chosen the right visa?
Many people apply for a visa not realizing the choices and options they have.
Immigration will never grant you a particular visa if they think your needs and Australia’s needs will be met by another one.
Make sure you understand the options available for your circumstances.
4. Get a certified Australia immigration agent

If you choose to go with a different agency to us, please make sure they are registered with Migration Agents Registration Authority (MARA).
They assign every registered agent with a registration number, called a MARN.
When talking with an agent, you should always ask for the MARN before going any further, and especially before handing over any money.
If an agent is not registered with MARA, they might take your money and do the visa application for you; however, it is quite likely they will just take your money and disappear.
To check that your agent has given you a genuine number, you can check the name or number against the register on the MARA website.
