Hey guys need help as I am on a budget I am using forums and not a lot of Migration agents
My 485 visa got refused after being on bridging for just over a year
I had filed for a 485 post study work visa in august 2021
I got an email to get a medical done in may
I had called the Bupa centre and they gave me a date of 15th of Aug 2022 and I uploaded the booking confirmation on my immigration account
However I was not in the best of health so I couldn’t attend my booking on 15th of august 2022 and got a fresh new booking for 20th of September 2022
Now the mistake I made
I accidentally uploaded my previous booking confirmation again on my immigration account which was on 15th of august and the officer in charge believed I was not going for a medical and on that basis my visa was refused on 2nd of September 2022 (Dumb mistake of uploading a wrong document).

It said my only option is to go for AAT review
I applied for the review and was suggested to go for my medical on 20th of september
However, when I went for the medical they said my HAP ID has been expired and can not do my medical
Not sure what’s happening at the moment as I found a person with a similar case
However he was able to get his medical done
If anyone can help, would be a big help

5% of $3000 is $150, what agent is doing 485 applications for 150?
Anyway thanks for your comment
From what wrussell said, I would assume he would check a 485 application for $150, and confirm if it was OK to submit as is, or if it had glaring mistakes. He is a Registered Migration Agent.

To manage an AAT application in a case with which you are not familiar, you need to obtain the full immigration file under Freedom of Information. This almost certainly cannot be achieved in the limited time available to lodge an AAT application, so it is necessary to lodge a 'bare bones' application that might not have reasonable prospects of success. It does not matter (apart from wasting the $3153 filing fee) if an applicant lodges a doomed AAT review application, but a registered migration agent is looking for trouble with the regulator and a shattered reputation for lodging meritless applications. In almost 20 years, I have had only one adverse AAT decision and that case was very arguable.
