Visa Refused?

Do I appeal or do I reapply? Who can I trust?

Make a well informed decision now and safe money later


They did not know what you were going through?
They did not consider your circumstances?
They cancelled or refused without giving you a chance to tell your story?
They did not understand you?
You felt that the decision was not fair?
You did not have a chance to provide all the evidence required?
Your Migration Agent or Lawyer was not diligent?
You are not sure what to do next, you are lost and you feel alone?

Don’t panic – there still might be a chance to be understood and welcomed.

It is incredibly frustrating to fret over every single detail of your visa application only to receive a refusal. To add insult to injury, the refusal letters can sometimes be confusing for someone who has just received one for the first time. The refusal could have been triggered by various reasons, some more serious – such as a criminal record, or poor health, while others could be as trivial as a small mistake on your application form.

I have seen a wide range of refusals throughout my professional career to understand the differences and determine the severity of your situation. The best possible step you can take is to ensure that you have a representative who cares that you will achieve the best possible outcome. I understand that many of our clients have taken great lengths to make migrating to a foreign country a possibility for themselves and/or their families and I aim to ensure that the process while daunting for you, will be as smooth as possible despite the initial hiccup.

Whether you need to make a reapplication or need to be represented for an appeal, I am able to discuss and guide you through them every step of the way.

It is not too late to change your luck!

Our mission is to ensure that our clients are not just a set of numbers in the system. This means that your visa application is tended to with tailored Immigration advisory insight.

At Astute Immigration Advisory we know that every immigration application is different. Our success in various visa cases, and individual client support has established us as the most trustworthy Immigration Agency in Sydney.

Environmental and social responsibility are also at the core of what we do at Astute Immigration Advisory.

We value sustainable immigration practices in the workplace and contribution to the community – by allocating a portion of our fees towards those in need. 

We aim to continue partnering with organisations like UNICEF, so that our team of advisors can give back to the community and to less fortunate members of society.

About Ieva


Throughout my career in Immigration services, I have met clients from all walks of life. This has enabled me the opportunity to assist them with a wide range of Immigration advisory issues.

My professional experience at one of the leading Immigration Law Firms in Australia, has paved the way for my handling of more complex Immigration scenarios.

For instance, I have assisted migrants with waivers (Public Interest Criterion 4020 (PIC4020), Health Criterion 4005 and 4007, Schedule 3, s501 cancellations, Serial Sponsorship, amongst others) and responses to Natural Justice letters. I further provided support for Immigration Lawyers and Barristers in Federal Circuit Court and Federal Court appeals.

I have a passion for solving unique cases, dealing with people directly and providing the immigration advisory care not often found in larger firms. Nor do not shy away from a challenge.

I understand that every case is unique and I am able to tailor my advice to you based on your specific needs. 

Having migrated to Australia, I understand the struggles of the Australian Visa process.

I recognise the difficulties in understanding and justifying each visa requirement, where there continues to be a lack of support for migrants.

In essence, my aim is to help you overcome that.
