- The applicant’s COE(Confirmation of Enrolment).
- Valid OSHC(Overseas Student Health Corner) health insurance.
- Passport that will hold validity for applicant’s entire stay of study in Australia.
- Proof of temporary stay.
Depending on where the applicant is staying, these extra documents may be required:
- Birth certificate.
- Proof that the applicant can financially support themselves while studying(bank statement).
- Proof that the applicant will be able to successfully complete their higher education in Australia(IELTS results, past grade reports).
- Proof of previous employment(previous paychecks and job contracts).
- Proof of past criminal records(if applicable).
These are the steps that have to be followed in order to secure the student visa:
Apply to an educational institution and obtain a COE
After careful deliberation, the applicant must get enrolled at the institution of their choice. If they are successful,
they will obtain an offer letter which they should accept in writing and also pay the tuition deposit requested by the institution.
Following this, the institution will send them a CoE(Confirmation of Enrolment) which the applicant requires in order to apply for their visa.
Create an account with Australian Immigration Authorities
After creating an account online, the applicant must enter their name, phone number and email address before proceeding further.
The applicant must then create a password and accept the conditions that are stipulated.
Get all the required documents ready
Ensure that all the required documents are present so that they can be submitted when required. Depending on the place from
which the individual is applying for and where they are applying to, extra documents may be required.
Complete the application online
On the initial page, the applicant should fill in their nationality and CoE code. After choosing the Education Sector that the
applicant belongs to, they will then be asked to submit details about themselves, their family, education, experience,
health and criminal record.
Pay the visa fee online and obtain Transaction Reference Number
On paying the application fee online successfully, a receipt with a TRN(Transaction Reference Number) will be obtained.
Ensure that the page is saved after this step has been completed.
Complete health checkup and visa interview
Depending on the location of the applicant, they may have to go through a health checkup. This should only be done after
getting the TRN. Instructions will then be provided on what needs to be checked by the applicant.
Wait for visa results
Once all the applications have been completed, wait for the results of the application. This will vary depending on where the
individual is applying from. Since the visa is electronic, the online grant letter can be printed out once the visa has been approved.
The applicant can then move to Australia when they wish(earliest date is 90 days before the beginning of the course as printed on the CoE).
