Refusal to grant visa on account of applicant’s qualifications

October 13, 2021 - Unreported Cases

The applicant had first arrived in Australia in 2010 on a Working Holiday Visa. The following year the applicant lodged an application for the 457 Visa. The visa application was refused because the applicant did not have the relevant skills or qualification for the nominated occupation.

Between 2011 and 2013 a preliminary submission to MRT was made, a successful nomination for the applicant’s sponsoring company was produced and the applicant’s skills and qualifications were presented to the proper skills assessment authority. In November 2013, ISL submitted details on the applicant’s skills and qualifications demonstrating that the applicant had now satisfied all requirements.

A decision was made on the papers by MRT without a hearing and the case was remitted back to DIBP for the grant of the visa.
