More students eligible for simpler, faster visas

Study in AustraliaFor the first time students enrolled in advanced diploma level courses at low immigration risk providers will be able to access streamlined visa processing (SVP) arrangements.

SVP will benefit eligible students through simpler and faster visa processing.

It will make study in Australia even more attractive to overseas students, while at the same time ensuring that immigration risk is appropriately managed.

These changes will benefit Australia's vocational education and training (VET) and higher education sectors, supporting the sustainable growth of international education in Australia and boosting the economy.

It is expected that the extension of SVP to low immigration risk providers offering advanced diploma courses will commence in early 2015, pending legislative changes.

Thank you for your comments. If you are thinking about changing your course of study, you need to ensure that you continue to meet all the conditions that apply to your student visa.
