Australia Student Visa Guidance

Let’s answer some questions for you:


When can I apply for the visa?

To apply for your visa you need to have the Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE) from your university. The CoE will be issued to you by your university after you accept your offer and make a part payment of your total fees. You also have to pay for  the Overseas Student Health Cover before the CoE is issued. The amounts to both these will be mentioned on your offer letter.

The CoE contains an official course (CRICOS) registration code along with the start and end dates. The CoE is also called as eCoE as it is issued electronically.

Note: You can apply for your visa 124 days, approximately 4 months before your course start date.

What’s my visa type?

Higher Education Sector: Temporary Visa (Subclass 573) PG and UG coursework degrees and Subclass 574 for PG research degrees.

What is the visa fee?

Demand Draft in INR in the name of “Australian High Commission”, payable at New Delhi

AUD 535$ = INR 30,200 (Fees are revised every July, make sure you check before applying) Plus, INR Demand Draft in the name of “VFS Global Services Pvt. Ltd” INR 910

How soon can I travel to Australia?

You can travel to Australia 90 days before your course starts

Can I work on if I have an Australian student visa?

Yes, you can work 20 hours per week and 40 hours during your vacations.

Can I work in Australia after my studies are over?

Yes you can work in Australia after applying for the relevant post-study work visa:

  • Bachelors and Masters degree holders are eligible to apply for a 2 year post study work visa in Australia
  • Masters by research and Doctoral degree holders are eligible to apply for a 3 and 4 years post study work visa in Australia respectively
  • All other students who have studied in Australia for a minimum of 2 years are eligible to apply for an 18 months work visa in Australia

Students must have at least two years of academic study in Australia in order to be eligible for a post study work visa. You may get a single degree or multiple degrees but the total duration of your study must be at least two academic years. For eg. say you first studied a 1 year Master of Information Systems (MIS) at the University of Melbourne or the Masters of Engineering Science at the University of Queenland and the you finished a 1 year of MBA from Melbourne Business School, then you can apply for the post study work visa. If you would have studied only one of these degrees, the you will not be eligible to apply for a Post Study Work Visa in Australia
