Visa Refusals and Cancellations
Visas are usually refused due to a complicated legal or factual issue, or by the failure of the applicant to prove they meet the legal requirements for the grant of their visa.
A visa might be cancelled if the holder never was or is no longer entitled to hold the visa. The Department of Immigration’s cancellation powers are either discretionary or mandatory, and may only be enforced after certain legal and procedural requirements have been met.
If your visa is refused or cancelled – we recommend that you contact us as early as possible for professional assistance as strict time limits apply to seek an appeal of your unfavourable decision.
