The Immigration Department of Australia have made it clear that the situation related to those individuals who had their visa revoked and had also confirmed that the application to cancel a visa cancellation would continue to be processed after the person had left the nation.
It has followed just after a latest bill has been passed in the Parliament of Australia which permits the Australian citizenship to be cancelled from those individuals who are involved in the controversy over the individuals from New Zealand that are being deported for small criminal offences.
According to Peter Dutton, Australian Immigration Minister, signing the form for supporting the voluntary removal won’t have effect on the appeals and thus the processing a cancellation application will only end if the person chooses to withdraw their application.
He said that for removing any doubt, he has instructed the DIBP for clarifying the wording in every material which has been provided to the person who seek voluntary removal.
Dutton had also pointed out that such cases has already happened where the citizens from New Zealand had returned to Australia after getting an appeal decision in their favour while they were went back to New Zealand.
Under the Section 501CA(4) of the Migration Act, the minister might cancel the original cancellation verdict if the individual make representations according to the invitation and it is satisfying that the individual had gone through the character test or that there is other reason why the original judgment should be cancelled.
Dutton had defended the latest regulation that permit the government to remove the citizenship of Australia from the dual citizens suspected of engaging in crimes that includes individuals who are overseas.
