New Genuine Student Requirement (Genuine Temporary Entrant)

Genuine Temporary Entrant

The Government has implemented a replacement for the Genuine Temporary Entrant (GTE) criterion for student visas, now known as the Genuine Student (GS) requirement. This change takes effect for student visa applications submitted on or after March 23, 2024. However, applications lodged before this date will still be evaluated based on the GTE requirement.

The GS requirement recognizes the availability of post-study pathways to permanent residency for eligible graduates. International students who have completed studies and obtained qualifications in Australia can contribute to addressing skill shortages in the country by providing a skilled workforce

The GS requirement focuses on the assessment of the student’s genuine intention to study in Australia, having regard to a number of factors, including the applicant’s circumstances, evidence of course progression, immigration history, compliance with visa conditions and other relevant matter.
