Ministerial Intervention

The Minister of the Department of Immigration and Border Protection has over 40 personal powers under the Migration Act 1958 (Cth). The Minister can intervene in your case when the Minister thinks that it is in the public interest to do so.The Minister is guided by various principles when both deciding to intervene in your case and, if the Minister does decide to intervene, when making a decision about your case. However, the Minister is not legally bound to intervene or to consider intervening. This means that Ministerial Interventions applications need to meet the relevant criteria and be very strong to compel the Minister to act in the public interest and on your behalf.
