MIGRATION REVIEW TRIBUNAL
Decisions that can be reviewed include decisions:
The operations of the Tribunal are governed by the Migration Act 1958 and Migration Regulations 1994. In conducting a review, the Tribunal looks at the issues and evidence afresh. Its principal objective is to ensure that the administrative decision reached in a case is the correct and preferable decision. The Tribunal seeks to provide a mechanism of review that is "fair, just, economical, informal and quick".
Proceedings of the Tribunal are generally open to the public and approximately 40% of Tribunal decisions are published. Published decisions generally identify persons involved in a case. In some cases, for example, cases where a person may be at risk if identified, the Tribunal may direct that the published decision be edited so as not to contain information which may identify the persons involved in a case.
A range of general statistical information relating to the Tribunal's performance is available online.
