Immigration Appeals Service

We assist clients with all type of immigration appeals services.

Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT)

The AAT is responsible for providing an independent review process for visa refusals and cancellation decisions.

We strongly recommend that you have a migration lawyer represent you at your AAT hearing. WLW Migration Lawyers are experts in this Immigration Appeals process and can help prepare your case and advocate for you at your hearing.

Immigration Assessment Authority (IAA)

The IAA is a tribunal set up as a part of the fast track assessment process. The IAA will provide a limited review of fast track reviewable decisions.
