Immigration Appeals and Review

Judge and Gavel

Immigration Assessment Authority (IAA)

We assist asylum seekers who arrived to Australia by boat with applications for merits review to the Immigration Assessment Authority (IAA).

Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT)

 

The Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT) reviews eligible applications that the department of Home Affairs has decided. The Tribunal does independent review to affirm, set aside or remit the original decision. 

Immigration and Refugee Visa Services has extensive experience representing clients in merits review matters, including visa and citizenship application refusals, visa cancellations and detention issues.

 

Australian Citizenship

Australian citizenship has many benefits such as obtaining an Australian passport, the right to vote, the right to apply for government jobs, and financial assistance for education.

The citizenship application can be complex and it is crucial that this important application is managed carefully.
