Appeals & Visa Cancellations

How we can help

We understand that dealing with negative decisions by the Department of Immigration can be extremely stressful. In these times, you want to have a genuine relationship with your lawyer and be guided through the process with confidence.

We specialise in complex visa situations and can help you with:

 •  responding to notices to consider cancellation or refusal;
 •  visa refusal and cancellations;
 •  citizenship refusal;
 •  appeals to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (formerly MRT and RRT); and
 •  appeals to the Federal Courts.

If you have received a visa refusal notification, it is important that you seek legal advice immediately as there are strict timelines for applying for a review of the decision.
