Advocacy if your visa is refused or cancelled
The visa application process can be exhilarating and frustrating. Approval is always received enthusiastically, but what happens if your visa is refused or cancelled?
Visa cancellations and refusals can occur for many reasons:
- Failing to comply with the requirements of a previous visa
- Insufficient evidence to support your application
- Inability to meet character or health requirements
- Providing false or misleading information.
If your visa is refused or cancelled, it may be possible for the decision to reviewed by a tribunal or court. The review body involved will depend on your individual circumstances and not all decisions involving refusal or cancellation of a visa are reviewable by these bodies.
There are very strict timeframes for case review, which means it’s vital you act quickly. Working with a migration agency who understands the law can help ease concerns and make the process for resolving complex immigration matters more manageable.
The TMA way is to assess each case on its individual merits. We take time to understand your unique circumstances and will always be transparent and upfront about the likelihood of your success in the appeal or review process. After our assessment, you will understand clearly if you have the right for the decision review.
Experience with clients whose visa is refused or cancelled means we’re well qualified to:
- Undertake the assessment and provide advice on next steps
- Assist you with preparing your evidence for review
- Represent you at the review proceedings
- Make submissions on your behalf to the Minister for Home Affairs, if there are exceptional circumstances warranting Ministerial intervention into your case
We understand the review process can be stressful and disappointing. At all times, you will find our approach personal, practical, and supportive.
