Visa Refusal

A visa refusal occurs when a visa application that has been submitted is declined by the Department of Home Affairs.

Reasons why a visa may be refused

  • character issues

  • applicant has provided false or misleading information

  • failure to satisfy the English language test

  • breach of visa conditions

  • applicant has not convinced the Department of Home Affairs that they are a genuine tourist when applying for a visitor visa

  • applicant has not convinced the Department of Home Affairs that they are a genuine student when applying for a student visa.

Appealing a Visa Refusal

If a visa is refused, you may be able to apply for a review of the decision. The Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT) is responsible for undertaking a merits review of departmental decisions, including visa refusal decisions. Appeals have strict time limits.
