When you are applying for a student visa to come to Australia it can take some time to process so ensure that you are well prepared with the appropriate documents so that it limits the amount of time it takes to be approved. To help you have a better understanding on this you can find out more information from the Department of Immigration and Border Protection.
If you receive written confirmation from the immigration office that your visa application has not been successful, you have 2 options:
Yes. Depending on your situation, if you are on any other type of visa apart from an Australian permanent-resident visa, you must apply through the International Services Unit (ISU). Other visa types include Diplomatic, Working Holiday, Dependent, or Visitor Visas for example. Please phone our International Services Unit for more information.
