Cancelled Visas


If you have received a notice that your Australian visa is being considered for cancellation, or that your visa has been cancelled, don’t be disheartened as you are not alone. Cancellations have risen dramatically under the current government and in many cases, the Department of Immigration exercises discretion on whether or not to cancel a visa. Engaging help from a expert in visa cancellations is the most important thing you can do, as there are often steps you can take to appeal or have the decision revoked.

Visa cancellation decisions can be set aside, overturned or revoked by the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT) and the process for applying for a review of the decision can be done quickly and effectively by a lawyer who is a experienced in the area of cancelled visas.

We can help. First, you need to confirm that your case is eligible for appeal or revocation.

Check the notice you received from the Department of Immigration. The sections under which you can receive a Notice of Intention to Consider Cancellation (NOICC) include 501, 137J, 134, 116, 109. In these cases, there is often an opportunity to appeal.

In the case of a mandatory cancellation 501(3A), however, there is no right of appeal, but an application can be lodged for a revocation of the decision.

ACT FAST! It is critical that you act quickly and take the necessary steps to lodge your appeal or application for revocation. You need to speak to a professional who is experienced in this area as soon as possible.

Strict time limits apply. If you miss your window, you will lose your right to have the decision reviewed and be left with no other recourse. You will become an unlawful non-citizen who can be placed in detention, be forced to immediately leave the country, or be excluded from ever returning to Australia (or at least for a number of years).

Don’t delay. Speak to one of our experienced visa cancellation experts now to find out where you stand.

“When I first contacted Timpson Lawyers I had tried other agents who gave me the worst advice ever. By this time I was angry and upset and really chewed their ears off. I told them I was sick and tired of being ripped off by agents and that all they were after was money. They said to me ” I’ll tell you what. After we look into your case we will tell you if we can win it. If we can’t win, we won’t take the case on.” I liked those odds, and I am so glad when I heard them say to me “Welcome to Australia”. At my age I thought that I was screwed but with all his knowledge and a brilliant team with him I am looking forward to the team handling my Citizenship early 2020. You would be a bloody idiot to use anyone but Timpson Lawyers. Believe me”.

Katherine and her team was amazing in helping me with my visas, taking the time and care to explain the process to me. I had gotten my 485 visa denied Nov 2021 – so the Australian borders were not open yet from COVID.

She helped me gain a 485 partner visa and then PR (SN190).
