BI3.15 Implications of providing false or misleading information (04/07/2005)
Immigration Act 1987 ss13, 34G
- The Immigration Act 1987 provides that:
- the provision of false or misleading information as part of an Expression of Interest or associated submission; or
- the withholding of relevant, potentially prejudicial information from an Expression of Interest or associated submission; or
- failure to advise a visa or immigration officer of any fact or material change in circumstances that occurs after an Expression of Interest is lodged that may affect a decision to invite the person to apply for residence or to grant a residence visa or permit,
is sufficient grounds for the decline of an application for residence and for the revocation of a residence visa or permit that has been issued or granted.
- For the purposes of this policy, information relating to a claim made in an Expression of Interest that is factually inaccurate and is relevant to the issuing of an Invitation to Apply or the assessment of a residence application, will be considered misleading.
Note: Any references to visa or immigration officer may be substituted with business immigration specialist.
