Authorised recipient

An authorised recipient is a person appointed to receive documents from the department relating to matters arising under the Migration Act 1958 (the Act) or the Migration Regulations 1994 on behalf of another person.

The most common times an authorised recipient would be appointed is during visa application processes, visa cancellation processes, sponsorship processes (including monitoring or sanctions) or ministerial intervention requests.The department cannot discuss matters relating to you with the authorised recipient unless they are also acting on your behalf as your migration agent/exempt person, or you have separately provided the department with consent to disclose your personal information to them.

You may only appoint one authorised recipient at any time for a particular application or matter. The department will send documents to the most recently appointed authorised recipient.

The department is required under the Act to send your authorised recipient any documents relating to your matter (eg. visa application or cancellation of a visa), that would otherwise have been sent to you. Under most circumstances, you will not receive a separate copy of the documents. You are taken to have received any documents sent to your authorised recipients as if they had been sent to you.

You should be aware that the documents sent to your

authorised recipient might include sensitive information about matters such as your health and character, unless you indicate on this form that you do not wish such information to be sent to your authorised recipient.

If you change your authorised recipient or end their

appointment you must promptly advise the department. You may use this form for that purpose.
