Do you know that incorrect information provided in a visa application can lead to visa cancellation in Australia? The Australian immigration laws require the applicants of Australian visa to fill their application form completely and not provide any incorrect answers. The applicants should not also give wrong or incorrect information during their interviews with the Minister for Immigration (‘Minister’), an officer, an authorized person, the Tribunal or the Immigration Assessment Authority, according to the law.
As per section 109 of the Migration Act 1958, Australia’s immigration minister has the authority to cancel a visa if it was proved that the applicant had given incorrect information in their application or during immigration interviews.
According to section 109 of the Migration Act 1958, a non-citizen must:
- Provide correct information in visa application
- Not provide fake documents
- Inform the Department if the applicant become aware of any incorrect information
- Inform the Department of any relevant changes in circumstances
The Minister may cancel visa even if the applicant did not know that the answer they provided was incorrect, according to Section 100 of the Migration Act 1958.
If it was proved that the applicant has given wrong information in the application or during interview, the Department of Home Affairs will issue a Notice of Intention to Consider Cancellation (NOICC) of their visa. Now the holder can provide evidence and submissions on why their visa should not be cancelled. If they fail to provide a satisfying explanation, their visa will be cancelled.
