AAT Review Applications

The AAT is able to consider a wide range of visa-related decisions, including refusals and cancellations. AAT decisions are based on the merits of each particular case.

The AAT has the power to take the following actions:

  • affirm (not change) the Department’s decision.
  • vary the decision
  • set aside the decision, and substitute it with a new decision
  • return the matter to the Department for reconsideration with specific directions.
