错过AAT上诉时间的客户又有希望了

大家知道如果被移民局拒签了签证,是有严格的上诉时间要求的。拒签上诉必须在移民局给出拒签通知的21天内完成。 目前移民局的通知是这样的An application
for merits review of this decision must be given to the AAT within 21 calendar days after the
day on which you are taken to have received this letter.

这种说法会让很多人摸不着头脑,不清楚到底什么时候才是截止日期。

最近一个客户就是算错了截止日期把移民局告了。DFQ17 v Minister for Immigration and Border Protection [2019] FCAFC 64,  法院的判决如下

The Full Court held that, by using that (complex) formula, as opposed to stating the deadline of 13 March 2017 in absolute terms, the letter did not comply with s 66(2). As result, the Court held that the Minister still had not, at law, validly notified the appellant of the refusal. The lack of valid notification meant that the merits review application had not been lodged late and, consequently, the Court declared that the Tribunal had jurisdiction to review the Minister’s decision and ordered it to do so.

如果用这个计算公式而没有明确指出上诉的到期日期的这种做法是不符合移民法66条第二款的规定的。 所以移民局并没有给签证申请人发出拒签通知。 没有拒签通知就需要重新发拒签通知。

这就意味着很多人的过桥签证可以拿回来激活。然后展开无限的签证可能性。 想想真有点小激动。

手上2个客户下个星期可以复活了。 种种原因都是错过了上诉日期,现在持有BVC BVE 在境内的客户。如果移民局不上诉这个判决到high court. 这2个客户就可以复活成BVA。
