The Immigration Appeal Division (IAD) hears appeals on immigration-related matters, including sponsorships, removal orders and residency obligations.
In order to make the immigration appeal process simpler, faster and more efficient, the IAD is testing new ways of managing immigration appeals. It has launched a number of pilot projects in the regions. If, in the assessment of the pilots, it is determined that one or more of these initiatives would help the IAD achieve its goals of processing appeals more efficiently, they will be adopted as part of the regular IAD process. The Initiatives section provides information on each initiative.
