Over the last twenty years or so I have represented many clients who have unfortunately had the visa they were seeking refused. (More often than not the visa was refused due to incompetent work of “dodgy” [poorly trained and unethical] migration/education agents)
Since about 2013 more and more application have been refused due to the applicant being found to not meet the so called Genuine Temporary Entrant (GTE) criteria.
As reader of this blog will know AR LAW Services has successfully argued appeals for applicants at the department, AAT and Federal Court level.

Recently in a Federal Court decision Inderjit v Minister for Immigration, Citizenship, Migrant Services and Multicultural Affairs (2019) FCAFC 219. an important point of law was made regarding GTE.
It is an argument or point of law AR LAW Services has long been making and it is satisfying to know all those years of work have not been in vain.
Admittedly this case is not a “silver” bullet to the GTE menace it does give many cases – usually cases destroyed by dodgy migration agents – a second chance: or perhaps a chance at redemption.
So if you or anyone you know has had a visa refused on (GTE) grounds, that is the belief that you are NOT a Genuine Temporary Entrant make an appointment with a Master Migration Lawyer.
