MIGRATION REVIEW TRIBUNAL / REFUGEE REVIEW TRIBUNAL

Calhaem Wilson and Co. assist with Merits Review applications to the Migration and Refugee Review Tribunals where the visa applicant, sponsor or nominator are eligible to file such reviews. The Migration Review Tribunal (MRT) and Refugee Review Tribunal (RRT) conduct merit reviews of visa and visa-related decisions made by DIAC.

Merits review is an administrative reconsideration of a case. A merits review body makes decisions within the same legislative framework as the primary decision maker, and may exercise all the powers and discretions conferred on the primary decision maker.

• MRT: Reviews a wide range of decisions in relation to visas other than protection visas

• RRT: Reviews decisions in relation to protection visas.

The tribunals are usually constituted by a single member. The tribunals have the power to affirm the primary decision, vary the primary decision, set aside the primary decision and substitute a new decision, or remit (return) a matter to the department for reconsideration with specific directions.
Should you require assistance in relation to these review processes please contact our officer.
