The fact sheet below is for people in Australia who want the AAT to review a decision made by the Minister for Immigration and Border Protection under the Migration Act 1958:

  • to refuse or cancel your visa on character grounds under section 501, or

  • to not revoke the mandatory cancellation of your visa on character grounds under section 501CA.

Special rules apply to the review when you are the visa applicant or the person whose visa was cancelled, and you are in Australia. This fact sheet provides information about:

  • what you need to do, and

  • what we do when we review a decision.
