Our Migration Experts specialise in Tribunal matters. If your application has been refused by the Department of Border Protection, you may be able to appeal this decision to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal or AAT. You will have the chance to review the decision made by the Department and submit any further evidence to support your case.
In most cases, you will be invited to a hearing where you have the opportunity to give evidence verbally to support your case. You can also call witnesses to give evidence.
Be mindful of the timeframe you are given to apply to the AAT. Usually it is 21 days after you have been notified of the decision but this may vary.
Refer to the link below for more information regarding the AAT.
