Urgent Matters Sydney
It is not a secret that many of the international students who are completing their studies in Australia wish to further stay in Australia after their graduations. Here are a number of visas that may be available to them:
- You may need urgent immigration assistance if:
- Your visa is expiring;
- Your visa has been cancelled;
- Your application for an Australian visa has been refused;
- You are in detention because you have either come to Australia without a valid visa or stayed beyond the date your visa permits;
- Imminent changes to legislation may affect your eligibility for an Australian visa;
We can assist with:
- Appeals to the Migration Review Tribunal (MRT);
- Appeals to the Refugee Review Tribunal (RRT);
- Appeals to the Administrative Appeal Tribunal (AAT);
