New immigration rules regarding the Australian student visa
For the majority of 2022, students seeking vocational education saw their chances of getting a visa decreased to under 50%, notably those from India, Nepal, and Sri Lanka. 34 student applicants, or 3.8%, had their application for vocational study accepted. India had the second-highest number of international students behind China as of July 2022, with around 96,000 students beginning their studies there.
New Rules for Australia Study Visa Requirements in 2022
- A new rule in Australia prohibits international students from changing their courses without the Minister’s consent.
- Due to COVID-19, the government will now count as part of the Australian Study Requirement for current and newly admitted students all
online educational courses that were taken outside of Australia.
- If due to this epidemic, international students are unable to finish their registered course at an Australian university within the visa’s validity, they may also apply for an Australia student visa at no additional cost.
- Graduates who previously had a student visa may now do so if they are outside of Australia and are unable to enter the country due to travel limitations.
- The government is also helping students who are stranded in Australia for more than a year due to COVID-19 and are experiencing financial difficulties. The government is allowing students early access to their Australian superannuation (FUNDS).
