E4.95 Obligation to advise of all relevant facts, including changed circumstances
Immigration Act 1987 s 34G
- Everyone who applies for a temporary visa or permit must advise a visa or immigration officer of any relevant fact, including any material change of circumstances that occurs after making the application, if that fact or change in circumstances may affect:
- the decision on the application; or
- a decision to grant a permit in reliance on the visa for which the application is made.
- Without limiting the meaning of "material change in circumstances", such a change may relate to:
- the applicant or another person included in the application; and
- any matter relevant to the applicable policy.
- Failure to comply with the obligation in E4.95(a) above makes any temporary visa or issued or permit granted liable to cancellation or revocation.
