Why Visa Plan Lawyers for your visa appeal at AAT?
AAT Appeal Process
Visa applications can be refused and visas may be cancelled for various reasons. Most matters can still be salvaged through merits reviews.
Your case should be thoroughly reviewed for you to make informed decision on next steps. You should only appeal the decision if you believe reasonable prospects exist for the decision to be overturned.
The statutory right for merits review usually lasts for 21 to 35 days. All merits review applications should be lodged within this limit.
The Tribunal is likely your last opportunity to have a visa to which you are entitled. Your submission should be written appropriately in sufficient details.
By this time, you should have provided all written materials. Your oral submissions at the hearing should be about adding credibility to your written submission. You should understand of ramifications of each verbal representation.
This is a highly technical area of law where migration agents cannot advise or act. You should find an error of law on the part of the Tribunal, which can be quite difficult.
