You must be aware of the strict time limit imposed on your right to appeal or apply for review.
If your visa is being cancelled or your application is being refused, you need to act immediately to avoid losing your right to appeal as a result of time limitation expiring. You also need to allow adequate time for your lawyers to assess your appeal. In considering an appeal, there are several issues that must be considered:
- Do you have a right to appeal?
- If so, what type of reviews are you entitled to – merits review or judicial review?
- What are your grounds of appeal?
- Does your evidence support the grounds that may be available to you?
For the past 10 years, Tang Law has helped applicants with appeals and reviews in many contexts of visa cancellation including:
- Breach of visa conditions
- Criminal Deportation
- Character ground – Failed to demonstrate good character

What Are My Visa Appeal/Review Options?
If the Department of Home Affairs (formerly DIBP) cancelled your visa or refused your application for a visa, it is usually possible to appeal or apply for review of the decision.
There are three (3) types of appeals and/or reviews:
- Merits review through the Administrative Appeals Tribunal
- Judicial review through the Federal Court
- Intervention by the Minister for Immigration
