The Migration Review Tribunal and Refugee Review Tribunal have announced that they will start accepting online lodgements from applicants that wish to appeal a decision refusal made by the Immigration Department from January 31.
In order to utilise the online service, applicants will require:
- Notification of a decision by the Department.
- A Visa or MasterCard if an application fee is payable.

The MRT says that any application lodged on the last day of a time limit from within Australia must be done so prior to midnight local time, or prior to midnight Australian Capital Territory local time if lodged from outside of Australia.
