If you have received an unfavourable decision by the Migration or Refugee Review Tribunal, you may have the option to request Ministerial Intervention. In certain circumstances, the Minister may consider decisions made by the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (‘AAT’).
The Minister will consider your case only if there are exceptional and compelling circumstances within your matter. These circumstances could be issues such as:
1. Circumstances that may bring Australia’s obligations as a party to the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CROC) into consideration.
2. Exceptional and compassionate circumstances which would cause irreparable harm to an Australian Citizen or Permanent Resident if you are forced to return to your home country.
3. Exceptional and compassionate circumstances in relation to your age or state of health that failure to consider these matters would cause irreparable harm to you if you were forced to return to your home country.
4. Your length of time in Australia and level of integration within the community.
5. If you provide exceptional economic benefit to Australia.
6. If there are circumstances that the legislation does not anticipate or application of the legislation was unfairly applied to your case.
7. If you genuinely are unable to return to your home country.
If you would like to request for the Minister to intervene in your case, please contact us to discuss this matter further.
