Have you had your visa cancelled, or has the Department of Home Affairs indicated that they are seeking to cancel your visa? Do you have a temporary visa, or a permanent visa? Both can be cancelled.

A visa may be cancelled for a many number of reasons, including, but not limited to, a breach of visa conditions, character issues, or claims that you provided false or misleading information with your application or on arrival to Australia.

The cancellation of a visa is a serious event. It is stressful and can be life changing for you, and those around you. If a visa is cancelled, you may be detained by the Department until you are removed/deported or while an appeal is being heard. You may also find that you have an exclusion period preventing the grant of certain visas for Australia for some time.

If you have received a Notice of Intention to Cancel (NOIC) your visa, you must respond quickly. Obtaining good advice early on will give you the best chance to provide a response to the Department as to why your visa should not be cancelled. MSM Legal has many years of assisting visa holders with visa cancellation issues, both in responding to Department, and on appeal.
