Having only a couple months to sort out my visa, Indah was such an excellent source to have in order to process everything correctly and in a quick manner. She provided the right tools to keep the process simple and user friendly with a professional manner. I would recommend Indah (ONE derland Consulting) for anyone seeking help on attaining a visa. I know if I ever need to apply for another visa, Indah will be the first person I contact! Thanks again for all your help!

We would like to say thank you so much for assisting me with my working visa application recently. I was so thrilled when you contacted me to advise that a company offered work with them. From then, everything went so quickly. We did all the skills assessment and preparation of my visa, and it was granted less than 6 months. There is nothing I can say, except thank you for helping me achieve my dream in this beautiful country. I would now like to ask for your help again to bring my partner to Australia. Thank you for keeping me updated with the progress and any changes to the rules. I am sure that many people are very happy with your service!

I will be forever grateful to Mbak Indah for taking care of my permanent visa application in Perth. It got approved faster than I thought and I am now happily residing in Australia with the freedom to pursue my dreams. I found ONE derland Consulting through a simple search from the migration agent database. I chose her because I felt I could trust her and because she gave me great advice and handled my application very professionally. She keeps you up to date and it has been a pleasure cooperating with her. I fully recommend her to anyone who is looking for migration consulting services, may it be a study visa, graduate, or permanent visa. You can’t get any better advice and representation than this.

Australian Student Visa Changes Due To COVID-19 Pandemic 2020

Australian Student Visa Changes Due To COVID-19 Pandemic 2020

Australian Student Visa Regulation changes during COVID-19 – Onshore and Offshore Application

The Australian Government made several changes to Student Visa regulations in July 2020 in response to COVID-19 Pandemic. The changes in regulation are created to support the international student education industry that employs thousands of people and worth more than $18 billion to the Australian economy.

Find out more about the Student Visa regulation changes in 2020 below:

1. Free International Student Visa Fee Due to COVID-19.

The first changes in International Student Visa in 2020 is the fee waiver, You are eligible for this fee waiver if you wish to extend your International Student visa because you were or will not be able to complete your study within the original validity of your visa due to COVID-19. You must complete the Form 1545 – COVID-19 Impacted Student and must have held a Student Visa on or after 1 February 2020. Only new student visa applications will be eligible for the waiver, and refunds will not be available to students who have already applied for the visa. If you are applying for an extension for free because your study was previously affected by COVID-19, you will be required to prove your claims and provide the Department of Immigration with supporting documents.

2. International Students arrival during COVID-19 Pandemic is currently on hold.

The second change for Student Visa during the COVID-19 Pandemic is the temporary closure of Australian border for all international visitors. As for the time being, the plan to bring back International Students to continue their study in Australia has been put on hold, and the borders remain closed. Each state has set its self-quarantine arrangements and protocols. You need to contact your education provider to explain your circumstances and to discuss your options if you are missing class due to current travel restriction or self-quarantine protocol.

3. Extended English Proficiency Requirements Processing time for Student Visa Application

For offshore Student Visa applications, if you are unable to provide English proficiency certificate such as IELTS score on your application due to COVID-19, you will be allowed by the Department of Home Affair to have extra time in order to provide it. This is an acknowledgement by the Department of the disruption of the services because of the current pandemic. 

4. Online study is now recognised as part of the minimum 2 years study requirement.

International Student graduates under Student Visas who are currently unable to return to Australia due to travel restriction will still be able to apply for the Australian post-study work visa or commonly known as Temporary Graduate Visa whilst offshore. Previous online study activities under the Student visa can also be used to fulfil the study requirement for the post-study work visa.
