“Jurisdictional error” means a decision was not made according to the law.
For example, the Court will consider whether the AAT
- Made a mistake in the way the law is understood
- Failed to provide procedural fairness to a visa applicant
- Failed to accurately interpret the meaning of relevant law(s)
- Provided a biased decision
- Omitted facts that should have been considered within the legal requirements
Due to the complexity of an appeal to the FCC, we strongly recommend that you seek professional advice from our experienced immigration lawyers to assess whether a jurisdictional error has been made in your case and the prospects of appealing to the FCC.
