If a non-citizen who has made:
(a) an application for a protection visa, where the grant of the visa has been refused and the application has been finally determined; or
(b) applications for protection visas, where the grants of the visas have been refused and the applications have been finally determined;
makes a further application for a protection visa, the Minister, in considering the further application:
(c) is not required to reconsider any information considered in the earlier application or an earlier application; and
(d) may have regard to, and take to be correct, any decision that the Minister made about or because of that information.
Note: Section 48A prevents repeat applications for protection visas in most circumstances where the applicant is in the migration zone.
