Overview
Department of Home Affairs (DHA) will send you this Notice plus other documents such as your criminal record. DHA will ask you to comment on the information. DHA will then prepare an Issues Paper. It will include all the relevant information DHA has collected from you and others. The Issues Paper is given to a decision-maker. You should write to DHA explaining why you think your visa should not be cancelled the decision-maker will consider the Issues Paper and decide to either cancel your visa OR give you a warning. DHA will write to you to tell you what they have decided. You will receive either a Notice of Visa Cancellation letter or a warning letter. If your visa is not cancelled, and you only receive a warning, you still might be cancelled in the future if you are convicted of other offences. If your visa is cancelled, you can appeal to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal.
