More information

Cancelling a business visa under S134 is different from other visa cancellations

  • No cancellation if you have made a genuine effort and continues to make an effort to establish and run a business in Australia
  • Members of the family unit of the primary business visa holder whose visa has been cancelled could prevent their visas from cancellation if they could show it will lead to grave hardship. Please feel free to contact our office for assistance in such a matter
  • Unlike other visa cancellations, where the visa would cease immediately on cancellation, business visas continue to be in effect for 28 days after it has been cancelled
  • Even if the business visa holder is cancelled whilst offshore, the holder can still apply for an AAT review
  • Cancellation of a business visa and, if applicable, a review does not attract any entitlement to Ministerial Intervention
