GTE For Visitor Visa 2023 Explained – How To Satisfy The Requirements
Before deciding to apply for a visa to any country, there are requirements that must be met. Especially in the case of an Australian visitor visa. When submitting a visitor visa to Australia or some people called tourist visa, you must show that you are a genuine visitor or tourist, hence the importance of GTE for Visitor Visa.
Genuine Temporary Entrant (GTE) is a requirement or criteria that must be fulfilled by applicants when they want to apply for visitor visas to Australia. If this criterion is not met, it is likely that the Visitor visa application will be rejected by the immigration authorities. To avoid this, it is better to know in advance what is included in the GTE visitor visa.
Below are some of the evidence you need to include on Genuine Temporary Entrance (GTE) when applying for Tourist Visa to Australia:
- Intention to Obtain the Australian Visitor Visa
- Previous visa application to Australia
- Personal Circumstances as an Incentive to Return Home
1. Intention to Obtain the Australian Visitor Visa
In submitting visitor visas, applicants must understand the essence or purpose of a visitor visa, purely for a vacation in Australia. In this case, applicants can visit tourist attractions in Australia or visit friends and family in Australia. Visitor visa does not allow applicants to work in Australia.
Therefore, the applicant must prove that the main purpose of coming to Australia is to go on holiday. If later an indication is found that the applicant wants to work using a visitor visa, then the tourist visa will likely be rejected or cancelled. Related to this, applicants must also be clear about their period of stay, and may not exceed that time.
2. Previous visa application to Australia
History of the applicant’s previous trip to Australia will certainly be recorded in the immigration system. Therefore, when submitting a visitor visa for the second time, previous travel will also have an effect. The immigration authorities will see the applicants’ track record while in Australia.
If previously the applicant had overstayed or had experienced a refusal of a visa, then the next application would also have a high risk of being rejected. Therefore, it is very important to be honest in every visa application related to the visa history, and to abide by every condition stated in the previous visa.
But if this is the first time applicants have applied for a visa to Australia, they must meet other criteria for a visa to be granted.
3. Personal Circumstances as an Incentive to Return Home
Many personal conditions can be used as reasons or incentives to return to the country of origin after the visitor’s visa expires. In general, these personal conditions can be seen from various aspects: financial conditions, employment, education, family ties, and other aspects that can be used as incentives.
From a financial standpoint, this can be proven by having sufficient funds to use during a visit to Australia. Ordinarily, it would be around $ 5,000 AUD to meet the requirement. In addition, to satisfy GTE requirements from a financial perspective, it can also be seen from assets owned in a home country.
Assets owned in the home country can be used as a guarantee that the applicant will not stay longer than the time allowed on the visitor visa.
In terms of employment for GTE, it must be proven that the applicant has a job in a home country that requires applicants to return. This can be proven by the employment letter or employment contract.
If the visitor visa applicant is conducting studies in their home country, this can also prove that the applicant is a genuine visitor who will return for their studies.
Other conditions to satisfy GTE requirements are family ties. If the applicant has parents, children, and even friends in their home country, this can also be used as one of the criteria for GTE.
If a person has travelled without their spouse or children or other close family members having also applied for the visitor visa, it would be a strong reason not to stay for a long time in Australia.
Applicants in this case will certainly return to their home countries, because all of their family and friends are not in Australia.
