International students have their own significance in the Australian economy, according to government data annually around $40 billion have been contributed by the international students whereas almost 250,000 jobs are supporting. As a result after arising safely from the pandemic, the Australian government has on the move of making remarkable changes to attract a number of international students.

As an impact of COVID-19, Australian Immigration announced the relaxation for international students and declared 5 major changes in the process.

  • Due to the pandemic, if students are unable to complete their studies within original visa validity then they can lodge the further visa application free of charge.
  • Students who are not in Australia and studying online due to the COVID-19 situation will be eligible to count their Australian study for a Post-Study Work visa.
