Overseas student loses Australia Visa as agent offers false data

An overseas student has lost the lawful battle for Australia Visa as his immigration agent had offered untrue information in the earlier visa application. The student has said that he was not even aware of this false data being offered.

The Australia Court hearing the petition has upheld the decision of the Department of Home Affairs. The DHA had refused the Australia Visa application by an overseas student. It had said that the student had offered false data in the earlier visa application, as quoted by the SBS.

A Pakistani citizen Adnan Ashiq had originally applied for the Australia Student Visa in 2012 February. In his application, he had ticked the no option to a response. This was to the query of whether he had at any point served the military. It also includes military or weapons training.

Ashiq applied for another Australia Student Visa in March 2015. This time he had answered the same question with a positive response. He told the DHA that he was terminated on disciplinary grounds from the Air Force Academy.

The Department of Home Affairs sought additional information in 2015 July. It enquired regarding the circumstances or dismissal of Ashiq but was not offered any response. DHA then refused his application in 2016 March. This was on the basis that he did not fulfill the 4020 Public Interest Criterion.

The Pakistani national then appealed to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal. He said that a visa agent in Pakistan had filed his visa application. Ashiq added that he had just signed the application. AAT, however, rejected his appeal.
