Ministerial Intervention

The Ministerial Intervention is available to you if your visa has been refused by the Department of Home Affairs and subsequently affirmed by the Administrative Appeals Tribunal.
The chances of your success for your Ministerial Intervention request depend upon your personal circumstances. The Minister will intervene if they believe that significant compelling and compassionate circumstances exist or it is in the public interest to do so.

Your application must have been reviewed by the Administrative Appeals Tribunal to make a Ministerial Intervention request.

Ministerial Intervention can be granted on the following grounds:

  1. Your removal from Australia will make irreversible harm to an Australian citizen/s or Australian family unit or Australian community;
  2. You are not able to return to your home country due to circumstances beyond your control; or
  3. Your skills are recognised in your industry and you are capable of making significant contributions to Australia with your skills.

Once you submit your Ministerial Intervention request, you must apply Bridging E visa to maintain lawful status in Australia.
