Incorrect information leads to visa cancellation
Furnishing incorrect information in a visa application can lead to visa cancellation in Australia. As per the Australian immigration laws, the applicants of Australian visa must fill their application form completely and should not provide any incorrect answers. Further, the visa applicants must not give wrong or incorrect information during interviews with the Minister for Immigration (‘Minister’), an officer, an authorized person, the Tribunal or the Immigration Assessment Authority, says the law.
Section 109 of the Migration Act 1958 gives authority to Australia’s immigration minister to cancel a visa, if it was proved that the holder obtained the visa by furnishing incorrect information.
