Appealing a visa decision with the Administrative Appeals Tribunal is not always a quick and easy process, and instead can often take months, or even years, before an appeal is finalized.
Differences among the processing time for appeals vary due to different visa types, the complexity of your particular case, and even the caseload managed by the AAT during the time of your appeal. Other factors within the control of the applicant, such as the completeness of your application, whether the AAT requires additional information, and the specifics of your case all serve to play a role in determining the timeline.
One way to ensure the quickest possible outcome is to provide a strong and complete submission to the AAT when appealing a decision. Here at Australian Migration Lawyers, we pride ourselves on the quality of our work to ensure a successful outcome, but also a timely outcome. We understand the difficulties associated with visa uncertainty, and as such we aim to expedite the appeal process for clients in whatever ways are available to us. Most importantly, this involves efficient, detailed, and legally-backed work that allows the AAT to make a decision at the earliest possible time.
Keep in mind that processing times and procedures are always subject to change, and while the AAT aims for efficiency, delays of several months to over a year can occur. This further demonstrates the necessity of minimizing any other reasons as to why your appeal should not be processed at the time.
We recommend consulting with an immigration lawyer here at Australian Migration Lawyers to receive the most up-to-date and relevant guidance. We understand that this can be a challenging and uncertain time for you. However, we take pride in helping and guiding our clients throughout the entire appeal process, start to finish.
The decision regarding your appeal will be implemented by the Department of Home Affairs. If you are in Australia and not an Australian citizen or permanent resident, your immigration status may change following the decision.
Rest assured, we are committed to assisting you throughout this appeal journey. If you wish to conduct a confidential consultation with one of our dedicated lawyers, please do so by calling us or contacting us here.

When a visa is refused, waiting periods vary before you can reapply depending on the specific visa applied for.
The first step to approaching this situation is to understand the reasons why your student visa may be cancelled, the potential consequences of such a cancellation and the options that may be available to you if you wish to remain in Australia following your visa cancellation.
