The Australian Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT), under the framework of federal law, has the power to independently review the decisions of various administrative agencies throughout Australia. MRD is the abbreviation of Migration & Refugee Division (Immigration and Refugee Division), which is a branch of AAT. When the Immigration Bureau makes a decision to reject or cancel various visas, MRD has the right to start the decision of the Immigration Bureau Review and decide whether it is correct or not.
The appeal fee for a review of appeal fees is usually $1673, unless there are special circumstances stipulated by law.
