What happens if it is refused?

You are here:

If the visa is an offshore visa (eg. Tourist visa, offshore General Skilled Migration visa, or Student visa), then there is no right of appeal. If it is an onshore visa, or if there is an onshore sponsor, then yes it may be appealed at the Migration Review Tribunal (MRT). The MRT is independent of the Department, and will overturn decisions if they are proved to be incorrect. Please read this: https://www.downundervisa.com.au/2014/01/25/australian-visa-refused-what-should-you-do/

Will the Department contact us when we get the visa granted?
Planning on calling into the Australian Embassy in Manila to discuss?
