MIGRATION ACT 1958 - SECT 473HG

Authorised recipient

             (1)  If:

                     (a)  a fast track reviewable decision in respect of a referred applicant is referred for review; and

                     (b)  the referred applicant gives the Immigration Assessment Authority written notice of the name and address of another person (the authorised recipient ) authorised by the referred applicant to receive documents in connection with the review;

the Authority must give the authorised recipient, instead of the referred applicant, any document that it would otherwise have given to the referred applicant.

Note:          If the Immigration Assessment Authority gives a person a document by a method specified in section 473HB, the person is taken to have received the document at the time specified in section 473HD in respect of that method.

             (2)  If the Immigration Assessment Authority gives a document to the authorised recipient, the Authority is taken to have given the document to the referred applicant. However, this does not prevent the Authority giving the referred applicant a copy of the document.

             (3)  Subject to subsection (4), the referred applicant may vary or withdraw the notice under paragraph (1)(b) at any time, but must not (unless the regulations provide otherwise) vary the notice so that any more than one person becomes the referred applicant's authorised recipient.

             (4)  In addition to the referred applicant being able to vary the notice under paragraph (1)(b) by varying the address of the authorised recipient, that recipient may also vary that notice by varying that address.

             (5)  This section does not apply to the Immigration Assessment Authority giving documents to, or communicating with, the referred applicant when the referred applicant is appearing at an interview with the Authority.
