GTE (genuine temporary entrant) requirement was introduced on 5th November 2011 to improve the integrity of the student visa program and to discourage the thinking of using the visa as a way to de facto permanent residency of Australia. In order to have a student via granted, applicants must prove they are genuine and intends to stay in Australia temporarily. GTE requirement considers the Ministerial direction 53 when assessing the applications. Following is considered under GTE:

  • the applicant’s circumstances
