Potential Australian visa pathways for overseas students after completing their studies


visa pathways

Australia is a popular destination for overseas students,. After completing their studies in Australia, many overseas students may wish to stay in the country and work or pursue permanent residency.


There are a number of potential visa pathways for overseas students after completing their studies in Australia. One of the most common is the Subclass 485 visa. There are various streams under the 485 visa, including the Graduate Stream and the Post Study Work Stream. This visa allows recent graduates who meet the eligibility criteria to stay in Australia on a temporary basis to gain work experience, or study further.


Another popular option is the general skilled migration program . Several different visa categories are available under this program, including subclass 491, subclass 189, and subclass 190 visas. The visas are a points-based visa option.


To be eligible for any of these visas, applicants must have a relevant occupation on the relevant skilled occupation list and undergo a skills assessment to demonstrate that they have the necessary skills and qualifications for their nominated occupation. The primary applicant must be less than 45 when receiving an invitation. In addition to these requirements, applicants for all three visas must also meet certain health and character requirements.


Applicants must lodge an Expression of Interest( EOI) and receive an invitation to lodge a visa application.
