The process of applying for an Australia student visa application can vary depending on the type of visa, the level of study, and the country of origin of the applicant. However, there are some common steps and requirements that you should be aware of before you start your application.
The first step is to choose your preferred course and institution in Australia and submit an application to them. You will need to meet the academic and English language requirements of the institution and pay any application fees. If your application is successful, you will receive an offer letter from the institution, which you will need to accept and pay any tuition fees or deposits.
The second step is to receive an electronic Confirmation of Enrolment (eCoE) from your institution, which is a document that confirms your acceptance into the course and provides details about your course duration, fees, and start date. You will need this document to apply for your student visa.
The third step is to apply for your Australia student Visa Application online through the official Immigration and citizenship website12. You will need to create an Account and fill out the online application form. You will also need to pay the visa application fee, which is currently AU$710 in most cases in Bangladeh. You will need to provide the following documents as part of your visa application:
A copy of your passport biodata page
Evidence of sufficient funds to cover your tuition fees, living expenses, travel costs, and health insurance
Evidence of your English language proficiency, such as a PTE or TOEFL score.
Evidence of your health insurance, such as an Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) policy
Evidence of your health and character, such as a medical examination and a police clearance certificate
Some applicants may need to provide additional documents or information depending on their circumstances, such as their age, country of origin, or previous visa history. You can check the specific requirements for your visa subclass on the Immigration and citizenship website12.
The fourth step is to wait for the decision on your Australia student Visa Application. The processing time for student visas can vary depending on the complexity of your case and the volume of applications. The Immigration and citizenship website provides an indicative timeframe for processing applications based on the median processing time for each visa category. For example, as of July 2023, the median processing time for a student visa subclass 500. However, this is not a guarantee and some applications may take longer or shorter than the median time.
You can check the status of your Australia student Visa Application through your Account or by contacting the nearest Australian embassy or consulate. You should not make any travel arrangements until you receive a confirmation of your visa grant.
