Judicial Review

Judicial review is the process of appealing an adverse immigration decision with Australian courts. While on many occasions adverse migration decision made by immigration officers would be reviewed by the Administrative Appeals Tribunal on the merits of the case (Merits Review), before they are eligible for judicial review by the court. Some decisions may only be reviewed by the court in its original jurisdiction.

In reviewing migration decisions the courts are not concerned with the merits of the case and would only hear cases where the decision maker has made a legal error in arriving at the decision. There are also strict time limits to applying to the courts and such would only be extended if the court is satisfied that it should extend the time to lodge an appeal in the best interest of administration of justice.
