Work visas (457, 482 & ENS) Nomination refusal – winning cases AAT appeal, talk to us. Don’t risk your visa, your money or your future with a dodgy migration agent!

A major Australian sport association retain AR LAW Services. Master Migration Lawyers to manage a review at the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT) due to their Nomination for a “work visa” (457 & ENS visa) for their head coach had been refused.

As often is the story, the application had been poorly managed by a migration agent rather than a immigration lawyer, and the result – rather predictably was – the application failed. (What is really disappointing is they are are very big and established migration agency – its like I have been saying for years – don’t risk your visa, your money or your future with a dodgy migration agent: trust only an immigration lawyer

Hopefully with the upcoming ending of dual regulation the days of dodgy migration agents are numbered. (What is a “dodgy” agent and how to avoid them see below. Be advised AR LAW Services sues “dodgy” agents so if you feel “cheated” or lie to or just didn’t what you paid for talk to us.

Given the application had been so badly managed AR LAW Services: Master Migration Lawyers had to “build” the entire submission including a series of reports as to “genuine” position: Market rate and a full suite of tax and training documentation. This cost the client a great deal of unnecessary expense. If only he had had gone to an Immigration lawyer first think of the money he could have saved.

It was a long and difficult reconstruction however after a day at the tribunal AR LAW Services won the case.

So if you, or someone you know has had a 457 or an ENS “work” visa nomination refused talk to us.

Or if you or anyone you know has an Australian Visa refused, rejected or cancelled due to police history or character grounds contact us to discuss your Appeal or Review options.
