Lam v Minister for Immigration & Multicultural Affairs [2002] FCAFC 36 (1 M

MIGRATION - purported decision of respondent Minister under subs 501A(2) of the Migration Act 1958 (Cth) refusing application for grant of visa - power of Minister depended on whether Administrative Appeals Tribunal had made a decision "to grant a visa to a person as a result of not exercising the power conferred by subsection 501(1) to refuse to grant a visa to a person" (par 501A(1)(c)) - Tribunal had decided favourably to appellant but had not, in terms, decided to grant a visa to him, and had remitted matter to Minister - primary Judge construed legislation in a non-literal way so that the Tribunal's decision favourable to appellant enlivened Minister's power under subs 501A(2) - after primary Judge's decision, Migration Legislation Amendment Act (No 1) 2001 (Cth) passed and commenced on 27 September 2001 - amending Act amended relevant provision (par 501A(1)(c)) retrospectively as on and from 1 June 1999 - relevant effect of amendment was to alter par 501A(1)(c) so that it read "not to exercise the power conferred by subsection 501(1) to refuse to grant a visa to the person" - effect of amendment to destroy ground of appeal relied on - nature of appeal from single Judge to Full Court

Ji v Minister for Immigration & Multicultural Affairs [2002] FCAFC 33 (27 F

1 The appellant is a citizen of the People's Republic of China. He first arrived in Australia on 27 December 1989 as the holder of a Student Visa Class H33 which expired on 7 August 1990. He lodged an application for refugee status on 7 August 1990 and his spouse lodged a separate application for refugee status, which included the appellant as a secondary applicant, on 13 November 1991. The appellant's application for refugee status was refused on 17 March 1993 and he did not seek review of that refusal. The spouse's application was refused on 10 May 1993 and an application for review was lodged with the Refugee Review Tribunal (RRT). The RRT affirmed the decision on 24 September 1993. However, the appellant and his spouse had departed Australia prior to this on 22 September 1993. On 21 November 1996 the appellant returned to Australia as the holder of a Business (Short Stay) Visa Subclass 456 which expired on 21 December 1996. He was not accompanied by his spouse or child on that occasion. On 23 June 1997 he lodged an application for a Business (Long Stay) Visa Sub-class 457 but this was refused on 28 November 1997. A review application was lodged on 31 December 1997 but was not accepted as it was out of time.

Vaq v Minister for Immigration & Multicultural Affairs [2002] FCAFC 35 (27

1 The question for decision in this appeal is whether the primary judge erred in holding that the appellant had not within the prescribed time applied to the Refugee Review Tribunal ("the Tribunal") for review of the respondent's refusal of his application for a protection visa. The appellant applied for a protection visa on 9 March 2001. A delegate of the respondent refused the application on 3 May 2001. The appellant was notified of the delegate's decision and was taken to have received that notification no later than 10 May 2001. He made an application for review of the decision which was received by the Tribunal on 1 August 2001 ("the Application"). Section 412(1)(b) of the Migration Act 1958 (Cth) ("the Act") provides that:

VAO v Minister for Immigration & Multicultural Affairs [2002] FCAFC 31 (27

MIGRATION - protection visa - whether primary judge erred in dismissing application to review decision of Refugee Review Tribunal - whether Tribunal bound to take into account evidence put to it in appellant's brother's application for protection visa where that evidence was not put before it in appellant's application - whether Tribunal's reliance on "country information" not current at the time of its decision involved an error of law - whether Tribunal's decision affected by actual bias - discussion of difference, if any, between "invincible" and "actual" bias
