Earlier this year, the Minister for Immigration introduced a directive to expand the definition of “character reasons” as a reason for visa cancellation. The new rule, Ministerial Direction 90, focuses on family violence and means some Australia visa holders who were previously approved to stay, could have their visas cancelled.

In this insightful session, experts explore the implications of Direction 90 for your clients and take a detailed look at case strategy in these matters.

Further details below.
