Australian Visa Update: Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT) resumes ‘in-person’ hearing from migration matters


The AAT is mindful that hearing matters remotely is not always practical in some circumstances and where the matter may not be deferred.

The AAT is taking steps to resume limited in-person hearings in the Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Hobart, Perth and Sydney registries.

The AAT will consider list in-person hearings on a case-by-case basis in accordance with the AAT’s practice directions.

In appropriate matters, in-person hearings are expected to commence within the next few weeks. Parties will be contacted by the Tribunal as to hearing arrangements.

Most AAT hearings and all AAT conferences will continue to be conducted remotely by video conference or telephone for some time.
