To fast-forward your visa into Australia, you first need to know all of the facts. The Immigration Department or an Education Agent can help you work through your Australian student visa application process faster.

The Eagle Academy can assist you with writing a Genuine Temporary Entrant statement that meets the criteria set out by Immigration. This statement should be submitted with your Visa application. In this article, we’re discussing how to apply to study in Australia properly.

What Is the Visa 500?

Under the Australian education visa (subclass 500), a student is allowed to stay in the country for up to 5 years as long as they are participating in an eligible course of study with an accepted institution. This visa allows you to complete your studies within Australia and bring your family unit with you. It’s recommended that you check your eligibility on the Immigration Department website.

The Genuine Temporary Entrant (GTE) Requirement

The GTE requirement applies to every person who is applying for an international student visa in Australia, and it is used to determine whether the individual plans on staying temporarily as a student or not. The immigration officer who is assigned to your application will consider:

  • Why you wish to study your selected course
  • Your economic situation, family ties, job and living arrangements in your home country
  • The value of your course to your future
  • Your immigration history
  • The intention of your parent, legal guardian or spouse (if you are under 18)
  • All relevant information regarding your situation

It’s incredibly important that you submit a high-quality, thorough GTE statement to help avoid visa application delays, visa refusals, and appeals.

The current off-shore visa refusal rate for VET courses across Australia is 25%. At The Eagle Academy, we’ve managed to lessen that figure to 10% by instigating a writing process that helps our future students meet their requirements.

What Are Our Streamlining Services?

Our institution contracts off-shore writing specialists who will offer a high-quality GTE writing service to all applicants. We address every risk factor that immigration officers consider to make sure your application has the highest chance of success.

This service is free and optional for AL1/2/3 Onshore students, but the service is compulsory and costs $150 for AL3 Offshore students – this fee is credited towards the course fees if the student’s application is successful.

Education Agents

Education agents can be assigned to your application to make sure you completely understand all visa requirements. If you’d like to work with an education agent, or become an education agent with The Eagle Academy, click here.
