Ministerial Intervention

Ministerial Intervention is the fail safe system built into Australia’s Migration Law. It enables the Minister to make a decision favourable to the applicant once all avenues of appeal have been exhausted, either from the Tribunals or Courts. The decision is made by the Minister for Immigration and Border Protection personally.

Such applications are extremely complex and require a great deal of preparation from an experienced Migration Agent. Please contact us so that we may review your eligibility.

S501 – Cancelation of Visa on Character Grounds

S501 of the Migration Act imposes a Character Test on visa applicants. Applicants must be able to pass the Character Test or else satisfy the decision maker that nevertheless there are reasons why they should be granted a visa.

A person can subsequently have their visa cancelled because of criminal offences that they have committed.

If you have received a Notice of Intention to consider cancelling your visa on Character grounds or you fear that your past criminal conduct may prohibit you from obtaining a visa you should contact us to assess your options.
