Visa Cancellation and Refusal Appeals

Visa Cancellation and Refusal Appeals:

Australian migration law is one of the most complex of laws in the world. Cancellation and refusals of visas have severe consequences on future visas for the applicant. Visa refusal refers to you not being granted a visa whereas cancellation refers to an existing visa being forcefully terminated by the immigration.

If visa refusals or cancellations are not handled properly, they could lead to temporary or permanent bans from Australia. They could also lead you to be held in immigration detention. As responsible migration agents, we ensure that cancellation and refusals are handled in the best possible manner.

There are many reasons why your visa could be cancelled. The Department of Immigration and Border protection has the power to cancel your visa under these specified circumstances and powers:

  • S109: Cancellation where visa granted on the basis of incorrect information or false documentation (applies to all visas)
  • S116: Cancellation for failure to comply with conditions and other grounds
  • S134: Cancellation of business skilled visas
  • S501: Cancellation on character or certain other public interest grounds

Thus, if you are in a situation where your visa is likely to be cancelled or refused, it is best to get in touch with us. We are well aware of all the above legislations and depending on your circumstances, we may be able to provide you with alternatives that can work out well for your visa situation.
