If you want to, you can make a formal request for access to documents or to amend your personal records under the FOI Act.
We make a range of information available for public access. We can also give people information about some AAT cases if you request it through access arrangements we have in place. Alternatively, you can formally request access to documents we hold under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act).
The information you are seeking might already be available online. Many AAT decisions can be accessed free of charge through the AustLII website. We also publish information:
Requests for information or copies of documents relating to some AAT cases can be dealt with without making a formal request under the FOI Act.
For example, if you have an active case in the Migration & Refugee Division, you or your assistant might be able to access certain written material in your case under section 362A of the Migration Act 1958
The disclosure log lists information which has been released in response to an FOI access request to the Migration Review Tribunal and Refugee Review Tribunal prior to 1 July 2015.
As required by the FOI Act, we have an Information Publication Scheme entry that provides information on our structure, functions, statutory appointments, annual reports, consultation arrangements, information we routinely release following FOI requests and information we routinely provide to Parliament.
