Merits Review has a broader, long-term objective of improving the quality and consistency of the decisions of primary decision-makers. Review of decisions enables all aspects of a decision to be reconsidered.

If a visa applicant or sponsor is onshore and their visa is refused or cancelled, you may have your case reviewed at the Administrative Appeals Tribunal

Bridges Immigration and Visa Services Pty. Ltd. are able to efficiently and accurately provide cost effective advice and solutions.

It is imperative that as soon as you receive a refusal or a cancellation notice, you act immediately as all review cases are very time sensitive and an application must be made quickly.

The process of making a submission to a tribunal can be a lengthy and complex process. Bridges Immigration and Visa Services Pty. Ltd. can help guide you through this process, helping you to research your case, prepare submissions, and attend the hearing with you. We will make sure that you are guided every step of the way.


Judicial review is where a court reviews a decision to make sure that the decision-maker used the correct legal reasoning or followed the correct legal procedure. On the other hand, in a Ministerial intervention, the minister may, in the public interest, substitute a decision more favourable to the applicant than that made by the Tribunal.

You also have the option of writing to the Minister of Immigration directly if your case has certain grounds. We can assist you in preparing a suitable submission.
