Over the last few months we've been working hard with our partner organisations to inform affected communities of the operation affect of section 501 of the Migration Act 1958. However, over recent weeks we have seen an increase in the number of clients who have had their visas cancelled under a different section - section 116(1)(e). Here is what you need to know.
We at SML are the last to gloat about our wins. Rather, our purpose is to spread the word (and share the facts) that overcoming a visa cancellation (i.e. a revocation of the mandatory visa cancellation by the Minister) under section 501(3A) of the Migration Act is possible!
What if a visa applicant fails the "character test" under section 501 of the Migration Act because the applicant has a substantial criminal history? Is there any hope for a successful visa application? The good news is there is!
