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.

Updated Practice Direction

On 6 February 2017 an updated ‘Practice Direction for Applicants, Representatives and Authorised Recipients’ was issued by Justice Duncan Kerr, Chev LH, President of the Administrative Appeals Tribunal. This clarifies the existing procedures set out in the Practice Direction, and assists applicants and representatives to better identify the manner and form in which material be provided to the Immigration Assessment Authority during a fast track review.

For more information please see our Practice Directions page.
