Employer sponsored migration
Australian employers can sponsor a worker to come to Australia on a temporary work visa (Visa 457). This visa can be used to employ overseas workers for up to four years in certain occupations.
Family visas exist to allow the overseas family members of Australian residents to come to Australia. These visas include parent visas, partner visas, child visas and carer visas. If you need to make an application for one of these visas, contact Go To Court Immigration Lawyers today.
Refugee visas are granted to those who are found to have a genuine fear of persecution in their country of origin from which the government cannot or will not protect them. Persecution may be on the basis of race, religion, political opinion, nationality or membership of a particular social group.
Student visas are granted to those who are enrolled in a full-time course of study, who have access to enough funds to cover their stay in Australia, who have Overseas Student Health Cover and who meet the character and health requirements.
If you need help applying for a student visa, contact Go To Court Lawyers.
Has your visa been refused?
If your visa has been refused you may be able to seek review of that decision by the Refugee and Migration Division of the Administrative Appeals Tribunal. The Tribunal will either affirm the decision, vary the decision, set the decision aside, remit the decision back to the Department for reconsideration, or find that it does not have jurisdiction to review the decision. The length of time it will take for a review of a decision to occur depends on the type of visa involved and the complexity of the matter.
