Administrative Review Tribunal

The Administrative Review Tribunal (formerly the Administrative Appeals Tribunal) is the second tier of external appeal process for a decision of the Repatriation Commission.  

Veterans have an automatic right of appeal to this level.  The Veterans' Review Board (VRB) will remain in place as the first level of external review.

Detailed procedures are not yet available, and we stongly recommend that if you wish to appeal a decision of the VRB to the AAT or the ART, you should consult an ex-service organisation, (that you have confidence in), who have pension officers that have competed the Training Information Program, (TIP).

For further information on the AAT, visit their web site at or contact their offices.  You can also obtain information from your nearest DVA office or visit their web site at and look up fact sheet DP 68.

The Vietnam Veterans Association of Australia can assist any veteran of any conflict, their widow/er's and children by providing advice and assistance in regard to all pensions matters.  Simply contact your nearest sub-branch.
