This week, Australia received more positive news as international students are finally welcomed back to their in-country studies.
Visa fee refund for international students
The Australian Prime Minister has announced that any international student travelling to Australia over the next eight weeks (commencing 19 January) will be entitled to a refund of their Australian visa application fee. A student visa application currently costs $630 – and this refund will apply to both new and returning students. Refunds will be organised post-arrival from the Department of Home Affairs.
Removal of managed quarantine requirements for Queensland
Effective Saturday 22 January, fully vaccinated international travellers arriving in Queensland will no longer be required to undertake managed quarantine – instead they will need to be tested upon arrival and self-isolate until they receive a result.
We are delighted to see so many applications coming in for our 2022 intakes! Teams across our colleges are ready to assist you and your students, so please reach out to them with any queries or for support with applications or acceptances.
