If you have received notice that DIBP are considering cancelling your visa, or where your visa has already been cancelled, please contact TSS Immigration today to discuss your particular circumstances in detail.
The Department of Border Protection (DIBP) has provision to cancel visas on a number of grounds, which can include instances where the visa applicant breached visa conditions, provided false or bogus documents, obtained a visa on the basis of a circumstance that no longer exists, character issues and a number of other events.
If you are in Australia and you have been issued a Notice of Intention to Cancel (NOIC) by DIBP there may be options available to you to prevent that cancellation from taking place, but each situation will need to be assessed on its merits.
In the event your visa has already been cancelled you should contact TSS Immigration for an assessment as to the legality of that cancellation and any possible options for a review of this decision.
