Decisions which could be reviewed in the former Migration Review Tribunal and Refugee Review Tribunal are now reviewed in our Migration and Refugee Division.


The avenues of appeal which are available will depend on the type of visa which was applied for, and whether you are currently onshore or offshore, however the refusal letter which you receive from the Department will outline the reasons for the refusal, and avenues that may
exist through which you can appeal the decision, as well as the relevant time limits within which an appeal must be made. It is important to note that these time limits are strictly enforced, and the Tribunal hearing the appeal is unable to hear an appeal which is made out of time.
