Appeal a Decision

If a foreign national receives a refusal of their immigration application, they may be eligible to appeal the decision. There are currently three grounds of appeal, including the following:

  • An error in law or fact;
  • A principle of natural justice was not observed; or
  • There are sufficient humanitarian and compassionate grounds to overcome a negative decision.

A foreign national cannot appeal a refusal of a temporary resident visa, work permit, or study permit application. However, the decision could be challenged by way of judicial review.
