STUDENT VISA – SUBCLASS 500
This visa allows student to stay in Australia to study full time in a recognized course. To obtain this type of visa you must be able to demonstrate that you are a genuine student and genuinely intend to visit Australia temporarily to complete your studies. Studying in Australia may lead to becoming eligible for a further provisional or permanent residency visa. However, any study you intend to undertake must be for the furthering of your education or career.
Visa Eligibility Criteria:
- Enrollment in a registered course of study:
Applicants need to enrol in a course of study, which is registered on the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS).
- Financial capacity:
Applicants must have the legal evidence of their financial capacity that shows they are eligible to pay their course fees and living costs of their dependent family members.
- English proficiency:
It is mandatory to provide evidence of English language skills with the visa application or when asked by an officer otherwise the visa will be refused.

Applicants and their family members can make a combined request in the student visa application or they can apply to join them later. It is essential to have the necessary funds on hand to support the accompanying family members living in Australia and also for those after the grant of the student visa (such as new born baby).
- Genuine Temporary Entrant requirement:
This requirement serves as a reliability measure that the student visa program is used as projected and not for a temporary stay in Australia.
