Three Reason Student Visa Refused By Australian Immigration
Has your Student Visa refused?
Not sure why or what to do next?
There are a number of reasons why a student visa can be declined.
Let’s take a look at three reasons student visa refused and how it can be prevented.
Did you provide enough evidence of your financial capability?
Were you able to meet the required amount needed?
The Department of Immigration and Border Protection need to be sure that you or your sponsor are able to finance the costs of your study and living expenses.
Failure to provide this information or evidence to support this will result in refusal of your visa.
The annual cost of living for 12 months in Australia is as follows:
From 1 February 2018, the 12 month living cost is:
- student or guardian – AUD20,290
- partner or spouse – AUD7,100
- child – AUD3,040.
You need to ensure and provide evidence that you have and can access the amount above as well as the cost of your course or school fees for the period of study.
You must also have enough to add for travel expenses.
For example if you are applying outside of Australia you must add a minimum of $2000 AUD to the above.
Failed to provide these evidence will lead your student visa refused.
Did you provide medical and health checks?
It is imperative that you provide health checks when required or when asked to do so by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection.
The Australian department of Immigration must be satisfied that you do not pose a health risk to the Australian public or the community.
Failure to provide the evidence will result in your student visa refused by Immigration.
Once you are requested to provide a medical health check the department will give you a 28 day grace period in order for you to comply.
It is best to arrange your health check as soon as possible or even before it is requested as this process can take up to several weeks.
GTE – Genuine Temporary Entrant
Genuine temporary entrant refers to your reasons for entering Australia and applies to all student visa applicants.
The department of Immigration will assess your reasons for study in Australia and determine if you are a genuine student wanting to stay in Australia Temporarily for study purposes or if your reason for application is to maintain ongoing residency in Australia.
You must be able to show that your intentions are that for temporary study only.
Failure to meet the GTE requirement will result in refusal of your student visa.
Factors that make up a GTE are:
- Your circumstances. (Are you from a high risk country? Do you have incentive to return home after your study? How does your chosen field of study benefit you or your career goal?)
- Your Visa History. (Have you been in Australia prior and for how long? Have you breached the conditions of previous visas? What visa were you on previously if any? Have you overstayed?)
It is best to ensure that you meet all of the eligibility criteria before you apply for any Australian Visa.
