Visa Refusals, cancellations and Appeals

The Visa refusal or cancellation is likely when the Ministerial delegate refuses or cancels an Australian visa. The cancellation or refusal may be discretionary or by operation of law. When a visa is cancelled at the discretion, it is possible that your family member’s visas are also cancelled if any held by them. In case of getting a visa refused or cancelled, you might make an appeal to the Administrative Appeal Tribunal to get the reasons of visa cancellation reviewed and considered for approval. But, where the visa has been refused personally by the minister, a review appeal cannot be made.
