Experienced migration agents and lawyers in Melbourne in handling visa refusal or cancellation cases

Unfortunately, not every application is successful and many migration attempts are met with disappointment.

This is especially pronounced when people try and do the application process themselves without the assistance of experienced and accredited migration agents or lawyers.

This doesn’t mean you have reached the end of the road when it comes to your application process. There is the option to have your application reviewed and appeal the decision that was made.

This process is even more challenging than the original application process and it is vital that you have experienced professionals on your side.

There are opportunities to not only appeal the decision but also explore other options depending on your circumstances, the grounds for the original decision and other variables.

Aim Lawyers can start this process by applying for a range of bridging applications to help keep you in the country while we go through the review and appeals process.
