Australia’s backlog of migration, refugee cases

Migration lawyers have expressed concerns about an admission from the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT) that it is under-resourced to deal with its backlog of tens of thousands of migration and refugee cases.

The AAT is responsible for reviewing certain visa decisions made by the Department of Home Affairs or government ministers, and is considered a crucial appeals process for migrants and refugees.

Despite the decline of visa processing and applications, the tribunal’s caseload of asylum seeker cases has continued to increase and is now outstripping the general migration cohort by more than 8,000 cases.
