Hello good ppl,
I am on bridging visa 485, received a refusal notice 2 days ago.

Decision record says my AFP police clearance was not uploaded.

I did a NSW police check not the AFP check by mistake, that was uploaded to Immiaccount, I was notified by DIBP email then, i applied for AFP police check . I was waiting to get the certificate letter which i got now. But visa refusal letter came. However i have emailed DIBP on the AFP police clearance ref no and completion notice, I was just waiting to upload the hard copy scanned. Looks like AAT appeal is the only choice i am left with.

Please advise me, considering my case, I want to show the emails and both of police checks to AAT, it has the dates.

How severe is my situation ? how likely it is that my visa will be approved through AAT appeal


thanks and please i ask for your prayers

You are correct, the only option you have is the AAT, unless you depart Australia, and return and apply again while you are still within 6 months of completing your course.
thanks for reply,

I shall appeal to AAT, but how severe is my case? since I have completed the check in a timely manner just didn't upload it Immiaccount, I emailed DIBP, have all emails.

Please, how likely the AAT appeal will result in approving of my visa? how severe is my case ??

thanks

When did you send the email containing the AFP police clearance ref. number and completion notice to DIBP?

By law, it is mandatory that you have applied for an AFP police clearance with complete disclosure prior to lodging your 485 visa application and this is what the AAT will consider when reviewing your case. The argument point is whether your NSW police check can be viewed as satisfying the above-mentioned requirement considering the NSW police force is part of the AFP and they all called "National Police Certificate".

The other thing remained unclear at this point is whether you have lodged your appeal through the AAT. Because if you haven't, you have lost your right to appeal by now because there are only 21 days for you to apply for review.

I am going through an appeal as well and I wish you all the best.
