Ministerial Intervention

If you have received a decision by a review tribunal or have previously been refused a visa or your visa has been cancelled, then you may consider applying for a Ministerial intervention.

The Minister has powers under the Migration Act 1958 to intervene in your case when the Minister thinks it is in the public interest to do so. What is and what is not in the public interest is for the Minister to decide.

The Minister is not legally bound to intervene or to consider intervening. When the Minister intervenes to make a more favorable decision, this usually means that the Minister grants a visa. However, only a small number of all requests for ministerial intervention are successful. Contact us today for a tailored advice for your circumstances.
