Dear Bilkiss Maudarbocus

 

Freedom of Information Request FOI18/138

               

I refer to your request under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI
Act) for access to documents.

 

The purpose of this email is to advise you that your request has been
transferred to another agency.

 

Under section 16(1) of the FOI Act, a department can transfer a request if
the requested document is not in the possession of the department but is
in the possession of another agency or if the subject matter of the
document is more closely connected with the functions of another agency.

 

Accordingly, on 22 August 2018, the department transferred your request to
the Department of Home Affairs.

 

We received your request on 20 August 2018 and the 30 day statutory period
for processing your request commenced from the day after that date. The
transfer of your request does not affect the due date for completion of
your request. You should therefore expect a decision from the Department
of Home Affairs by 19 September 2018. However, the statutory period of 30
days may be extended if the Department of Home Affairs needs to consult
third parties or for other reasons.  They will advise you if this happens.

 

More information is available on the Office of the Australian Information
Commissioner’s Website.  FOI fact sheet 16:  Freedom of information –
Extensions of time can be accessed here:

Dear Bilkiss

Acknowledgement of Freedom of Information Access request

I refer to your correspondence received on 20 August 2018 seeking access
to documents held by the Attorney-General’s Department under the Freedom
of Information Act 1982 (the FOI Act).

You have requested access to the following:

The number of visa cancellations under Section 501 in the last year for
educational purposes. I would like to know about the statistics of visas
cancelled under Section 501.

The subject matter of the documents requested by you is more closely
connected with the functions of the Department of Home Affairs (the
Department) than the functions of the Attorney-General’s Department.
As such, your request was transferred to the Department on 21 August 2018
under section 16 of the FOI Act.

Your request was received on 20 August 2018 and has been allocated FOI

Timeframe for receiving your decision

Exclusion of non-SES staff personal details and SES telephone contact
details

The Department’s policy is to exclude the personal details of officers not
in the Senior Executive Service (SES), as well as the mobile and work
telephone numbers of SES staff, contained in documents that fall within
scope of an FOI request. If you require names and contact details of
non-SES officers, or direct telephone numbers of SES staff, please inform
us so the decision maker may consider your request. Otherwise we will take
it that you agree to that information being excluded from the scope of
your request.

Publication of document

Where documents are released to you in response to your request, the
Department may be required to publish these documents on its website
within 10 working days in accordance with section 11C of the FOI Act.
Publication will not be required where the documents contain personal or
business affairs information.
