The Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT) provides a ‘merits review’, that is an independent review, of decisions made by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection, where a decision is a reviewable decision and unfavourable to the applicant.
You can learn more about appeals to the AAT from our blog: http://www.puttlegal.com.au/category/blog/appeals-to-the-administrative-appeals-tribunal-aat.
The AAT has created a number of video guides to assist in giving applicants and witnesses an understanding of the way the AAT works. These video guides cover the following topics:
- About the AAT;
- Applying for a review;
- After an application for review is lodged;
- Attending a conference;
- Attending a hearing;
We recommend you view these videos if you are considering an appeal to the AAT or in preparation for a hearing of an appeal already lodged.
You can find these video guides at: http://www.aat.gov.au/resources/video-guides
