It is very common for visa applicants who have had their applications refused by the Department, and who have also lost their applications for merits review before the Administrative Appeals Tribunal, to “appeal” (put most accurately, “to seek judicial review”) in the Federal Circuit Court, and to do so without the assistance of a lawyer.

In fact, when you read the decisions from the FCC on the Austlii Website, it is apparent that the majority of the applicants seeking judicial review are self-represented.

Is there any way to escape from the plague, pestilence and epidemic of “credibility issues” before the Administrative Appeals Tribunal? 

Doesn’t it seem that in so many cases the Tribunal is searching for the dreaded “inconsistencies” in a visa applicant’s account of events, and then seizing on the inconsistencies however small or minor to find that the applicant is not believable, or a “witness of truth” as a significant part of the reason for affirming a decision of the Department?
