This decision involved the AAT considering whether to dismiss an application for compensation from a security guard at Parliament House.
The AAT affirmed a decision not to revoke the mandatory cancellation of the applicant’s visa on character grounds.
In this decision, the AAT found the applicant could be granted a safe haven enterprise visa on the basis that the applicant would be at risk of harm and did not present a danger to the Australian community.
The Department asked the AAT to dismiss one of three applications from a self-represented applicant.
Migration and Refugee
In this matter, the AAT affirmed a decision refusing to grant a protection visa. The AAT was not satisfied the applicant had a well-founded fear of persecution because of their religion.
The AAT found the applicant was unable to satisfy the criteria for a protection visa as they were not genuinely seeking protection and had knowingly submitted incorrect information.
The AAT found the applicant had a substantial reason for travelling and remitted this decision to refuse him a bridging visa.
The applicant sought a review of a refusal for a skilled visa. The AAT set aside this decision as it accepted the applicant meet the essential criteria for an employer nomination.
Social Services (second review)
The AAT set aside a decision that the applicant did not qualify for a disability support pension as her condition was severe and she would struggle to find and maintain employment.
