Getting a positive result for your application isn’t always going to happen the first time around. Refusals can occur if you make simple mistakes in your application form, and fail to provide sufficient data or evidence to support any claims.
Mistakes can also be made from the government’s end if a decision maker mis-interprets your information or does not consider submitted data by mistake. Human error is common and hence there is an appeal process through the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (Migration Review Tribunal).
The fee to submit a review (appeal) of a decision from the Department of Immigration to the AAT MRT is $1673, however starting the 1st of July, that fee will increase to $1731. So if you are able to get your application in before the 1st of July 2017, then you will save some money.
The refund fee will also be increased for applications lodged on or after the 1st of July 2017 to $865.50 for all successful applications at the AAT MRT, which is 50% of the original AAT MRT fee.
