Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT) - Merits Review

The Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT) conducts independent merits review of administrative decisions under Commonwealth laws.

Highlights

  • A decision to refuse or cancel your visa may be reviewed by the AAT.
  • Decisions are reviewed “on the merits”, which means that the Tribunal will take a fresh look at the application, relevant law and policy and will make their own decision.
  • The AAT has the power to affirm a decision, vary a decision, set aside and substitute a new decision or remit a decision to the decision-maker for reconsideration.
  • Decisions that may be reviewed by the ATT include refusal or cancellation of visas where prescribed circumstances apply. Not all decisions are reviewable by the ATT, for example, a decision to which the Minister has issued a conclusive certificate.
If your visa application has been refused or your visa has been cancelled and you would like to know whether this decision can be reviewed by the Administrative Appeals Tribunal, please contact us for a comprehensive assessment of your circumstances.
