As of the 1st July 2015, Migration Review Tribunal (“MRT”), Refugee Review Tribunal (“RRT”) and the Social Security Appeals Tribunal (“SSAT”) have been amalgamated with the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (“AAT”). 

If the Department notifies you in a decision letter that:  

you have been refused the grant of a visa or; 

your visa has been cancelled and; 

the letter states that you are eligible for a merits review of the decision by the AAT 

Applicants should act quickly if you wish to apply for review of the decision.  This is because there is a time limit by when the application must be lodged for it to be reviewed by the AAT. 

The AAT cannot extend the date by when you must submit your appeal request to the AAT for a review of that decision. You must complete the relevant form and pay any applicable application fee within the time limit.  

If you  are currently holding a bridging visa, this will continue during the processing time at the AAT, until the AAT makes a decision on the refused/cancelled visa.  

You must pay an application fee for review of most of the migration decisions. The Application fee is $3,000. There is no fee if you lodge an application for review of a bridging visa decision that resulted in a person being placed in detention.  

For decisions to refuse or cancel a protection visa or for decisions made under section 197D of the Migration Act 1958, you do not have to pay an application fee at the time you lodge your review application. However, you must pay a fee of $1,846 if the review is not successful.
