Welcome to the Immigration Assessment Authority

The role of the IAA is to conduct reviews of fast track reviewable decisions. Fast track reviewable decisions are those decisions made by the Minister for Immigration and Border Protection, or delegate, to refuse to grant a protection visa to a fast track applicant.

What you need to know about the IAA

This fact sheet has been translated into other languages:

From 20 December 2017, the new Department of Home Affairs replaces the Department of Immigration and Border Protection as the department responsible for making decisions about visas under the Migration Act 1958. These changes have no impact on the jurisdiction of the IAA to conduct fast track reviews of decisions already before the IAA which were made by delegates of the Minister for Immigration and Border Protection prior to the change nor to the review of decisions that are referred to the IAA from the newly titled Department of Home Affairs.
