Administrative Appeals Tribunal - In-person hearings in Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne registries


The Administrative Appeals Tribunal has announced that, as COVID-19 restrictions in Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne locations are lifted, it will gradually resume in-person hearings and persona designate functions, prioritising those matters where a remote hearing or process is not preferable.

However, the Canberra, Melbourne and Sydney front counters will remain closed to visitors.

To prioritise the safety of members, staff and the users of our service, in-person hearings will only proceed in the Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne registries where all parties, representatives and other participants are willing to show evidence of vaccination.

The full announcement is available here.
