Notice of proposed cancellation

             (1)  Subject to Subdivision F (non-citizens outside Australia), if the Minister is considering cancelling a visa, whether its holder is in or outside Australia, under section 116, the Minister must notify the holder that there appear to be grounds for cancelling it and:

                     (a)  give particulars of those grounds and of the information (not being non-disclosable information) because of which the grounds appear to exist; and

                     (b)  invite the holder to show within a specified time that:

                              (i)  those grounds do not exist; or

                             (ii)  there is a reason why it should not be cancelled.

             (2)  The holder is to be notified in the prescribed way or, if there is no prescribed way, a way that the Minister considers to be appropriate.

             (3)  The way of notifying the holder, whether prescribed or considered appropriate, may, without limiting the generality of subsection (2), be orally.

             (4)  The other provisions of this Subdivision do not apply to a cancellation:

                     (a)  under a provision other than section 116; or

                     (b)  to which Subdivision F applies.
