Australia has a number of appellate courts and review tribunals with jurisdiction in the migration area. These courts and tribunals are an integral part of the Australian immigration law.
Many decisions made by the Department of Immigration and Multicultural and Indigenous Affairs (DIMIA) are reviewable at the tribunal level; for example, the refusal to grant a visa or a decision to cancel a visa. Merits review of decisions is available at the Migration Review Tribunal, Refugee Review Tribunal and Administrative Appeals Tribunal. Judicial review of certain decisions is available in the Federal and High Courts of Australia.
