Appeal and Review

Visa Outcome

Have you got your visa refused? You need not to worry, because in most cases you can re-apply, appeal or request review. Australia and New Zealand have very fair system in dealing with visa applications. However, many people may get their visa refused because of incomplete information, forged documentation or misrepresentation. In most cases they apply for visas, but they do not have access to have enough information. They rely on publically available information.

Though you may apply for visas on your own, but in most cases expert advice is highly recommended. There is a misconception that professional advice costs thousands of dollars, but actually most genuine consultants will charge you a small fee.
