AAT fees to increase

The Migration & Refugee Division of the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT) will increase fees for a review of a migration or refugee decision from 1 July.

The fee will increase to $1731 for all new applications for a review of a migration or refugee decision by the Migration & Refugee Division (if a fee is applicable).

The fee payable after an unfavourable review decision is made by the Migration & Refugee Division in relation to a protection visa will also be $1731.

In cases in which a 50% fee reduction is granted, the reduced fee will be $865.50.

The biennial fee increase is prescribed in the Migration Regulations, and will be reflected in updated application forms. More information is available from the AAT.
