MRT what documents to send

Hi all

My husband's partner visa got rejected this feb and we applied to MRT in feb also and we are now going to put together the documents to send to MRT, I was hoping that people who have been through MRT could give me an idea of what to send them.

Is there any way you can use a registered migration agent? What documents you need to send will depend entirely on your particular case - why they originally rejected you, etc. And I believe you have to prove that the case officer made an incorrect judgment based on the evidence they had at the time - which can be challenging.

Dear Medina,
Think of the MRT as your second shot at the visa as the MRT looks at your application afresh. This means a chance for you to include any NEW evidence to counter the issue that caused the refusal. Having done many reviews previously, I would say that it is important to provide a written and compelling submission surrounding the relevant circumstances and to assert your case convincingly.

@collegegirl we were with a migration agent when we applied for PR and he was no help actually we think he hindered out case so we have decided to go through MRT ourselves, but i did see an immigration officer for advise and when i explained our situation he said that our case would be an easy win, but we still have to send in documents, im just not sure what, basically in the decision letter it said that they were not convinced that we were a genuine married couple because of our religions and that they beleived we are not socially accepted as a married couple! we were so hurt when we read this !!

I'm so sorry to hear this... it is such an awful feeling to have someone make judgments about your relationship.

I recommend Mark Northam as an agent - he's fantastic and so knowledgeable.

Good luck...

Just because you had a bad agent previously is not a reason to throw the baby out with the bathwater and not have one. This is an American analogy, and I apologize for that, but that's the context I have at the moment, lol... It's like if you had a bad lawyer and you took your case to the Supreme Court and decided you didn't want a lawyer there because your first one was bad. You're in the place where you MOST need the help of someone professional... but because you had one bad professional before, you're not going to take one with you. lol. I'm not trying to press you into anything... just trying to point out that this may be where you really need help.

Substitute 'Supreme Court' for 'High Court' and it's an Australian analogy too!

Also, CG is completely right.

Thanks for your thumbs up Medina. Do send through your additional evidence and submissions to the MRT well before the hearing date. Bring along a few witnesses to testify as well. All these things help. All the best.

What a disgusting reason for refusal! You should make a complaint to the Australian Human Rights Commission for the Department's racial discrimination!!

Drown them in evidence to show they are wrong. Unfortunately mrt is very long wait so u may want to put another spouse visa in at same time . Read my posts and threads for more info in what we did as we were in similar situation except we had pmv300 but our reasons for rejection were also racist and outrageous
