The money to support you and your family members must come from one or more acceptable sources.
Examples:
  • Money deposits held in a bank account by you or a person supporting you.
  • A loan from an approved financial institution.
  • A loan from your government.

You must maintain satisfactory attendance in your course as required by your education provider.

You must make satisfactory course progress for each study period.

Your education provider will advise the department if your attendance or course progress is not satisfactory. The definition of 'satisfactory' is determined by your education provider.

You must advise your education provider of your home address within seven days of arriving in Australia. Also, if you change your address during your stay in Australia, you must advise your education provider within seven days.

Note: Your education provider needs your home address so they can contact you if you do not satisfy the requirements of your course. If they cannot contact you, this could result in your student visa being cancelled.

'No further stay' condition

Some visas are issued with a 'no further stay' condition. This condition means that you cannot apply to stay in Australia beyond the date specified on your visa, except in extremely limited circumstances.

Limited circumstances may include students who want to apply for:
  • a student visa with permission to work
  • a student visa that is supported by a sponsoring government agency
  • a Graduate Temporary Entry - Skilled visa
  • a visa to engage Australia's obligations under the 1951 United Nations convention relating to the status of refugees.

Students under 18 years of age

If you are under 18 years of age you must maintain your accommodation, support and general welfare arrangements for the duration of your visa or until you turn 18.

If your welfare arrangements are approved by your education provider you can not travel to Australia until your welfare arrangements commence. The date your welfare arrangements commence is the welfare start date that your education provider has nominated on the Confirmation of Appropriate Accommodation/Welfare Arrangements (CAAW) letter.

If your welfare arrangements change after your visa has been granted you must inform the department of these changes.

If your parents/legal custodian approved your accommodation, support and general welfare arrangements for you to stay with a relative in Australia, you must have their written approval to change these arrangements.

If your education provider approved your accommodation, support and general welfare arrangements, you must have the education provider's written approval to change these arrangements.

Financial capacity

You must maintain enough money to pay for travel, tuition and living expenses for yourself, your partner and your dependent children for the duration of your stay in Australia.

School age family members

Any family members of school age (between 5 and 18 years) living in Australia must attend school in Australia.

Genuine Temporary Entrant Requirement

Your individual circumstances must demonstrate that you genuinely intend to stay in Australia temporarily.

The factors that are considered during assessment of the genuine temporary entrant (GTE) requirement include:

  • your personal circumstances in your home country
  • your potential circumstances in Australia
  • the value of the course to your future
  • your immigration history
  • Any other matter that is relevant to your intention to remain in Australia temporarily.

If you are a minor the intentions of your parent, legal guardian or spouse will also be considered.

The information provided in your application form and supporting documentation will be used to assess the GTE requirement. You may be requested to provide additional information in relation to the factors set out above.

Examples of factors that are considered under the GTE requirement

  • Whether the applicant has sound reasons for not undertaking the study in the home country or region if a similar course is already available there. Decision makers should allow for any reasonable motives as established by the applicant.
  • The extent of the applicant’s personal ties to their home country (for example family, community and employment) and whether they would serve as a significant incentive to return to their home country.
  • Economic circumstances of the applicant that would present as a significant incentive for the applicant not to return to their home country. This may include consideration of the applicant’s circumstances relative to the home country and to Australia.
  • Military service commitments that would present as a significant incentive for the applicant not to return to their home country.
  • Political and civil unrest in the applicant’s home country. This includes situations of a nature that may induce the applicant to apply for a Student visa as means of obtaining entry to Australia for the purpose of remaining indefinitely. Decision makers should be aware of
  • Political and civil unrest in the applicant’s home country. This includes situations of a nature that may induce the applicant to apply for a Student visa as means of obtaining entry to Australia for the purpose of remaining indefinitely. Decision makers should be aware of the changing circumstances in the applicant’s home country and the influence these may have on an applicant’s motivations for applying for a Student visa.

The applicant’s ties with Australia which would present as a strong incentive to remain in Australia. This may include family and community ties.
  • Evidence that the Student visa program is being used to circumvent the intentions of the migration program.
  • Whether the Student visa is being used to maintain on going residence.
  • Whether the primary and secondary applicant(s) have entered into a relationship of concern for Student visa purposes. Where it has been determined that an applicant and dependant have contrived their relationship for Student visa purposes, the decision maker can find that both applicants do not satisfy the genuine temporary entrant requirement.
  • The applicant’s knowledge of living in Australia and their intended course of study and the associated education provider; including previous study and qualifications, what is a realistic level of knowledge an applicant could be expected to know and the level of research the applicant has undertaken into their proposed course of study and living arrangements.
  • Whether the student is seeking to undertake a course that is consistent with their current level of education and whether the course will assist the applicant to obtain employment or improve employment prospects in their home country. Decision makers should allow for reasonable changes to career or study pathways.
  • Relevance of the course to the student’s past or proposed future employment either in their home country or a third country.
  • Remuneration the applicant could expect to receive in the home country or a third country, compared with Australia, using the qualifications to be gained from the proposed course of study.
    • Previous visa applications for Australia or other countries, including:
    • if the applicant previously applied for an Australian temporary or permanent visa
    • If the applicant has previously applied for visas to other countries, whether they were refused a visa and the circumstances that led to visa refusal.
    • Previous travels to Australia or other countries, including: :
    • if the applicant previously travelled to Australia, whether they complied with the conditions of their visa and left before their visa ceased, and if not, were there circumstances beyond their control
    • whether the applicant previously held a visa that was cancelled or considered for cancellation, and the associated circumstances
    • the amount of time the applicant has spent in Australia and whether the Student visa may be used primarily for maintaining on going residence, including whether the applicant has undertaken a series of short, inexpensive courses, or has been in Australia for some time without successfully completing a qualification
    • if the applicant has travelled to countries other than Australia, whether they complied with the immigration laws of that country and the circumstances around any non-compliance.
    • If the applicant is a minor — the intentions of a parent, legal guardian or spouse of the applicant.
