Streamlined Visa Processing

The Australian government proposes to extend streamlined visa processing arrangements to students enrolled in advanced diploma level courses at approved education providers.  The change is expected to be implemented by early 2015.

The Minister for Immigration and Border Protection believes that streamlining of the visa application process for advanced diploma courses will benefit eligible students through simpler and faster visa processing.

The eligible education providers in the higher education and Vocational Education and Training sectors will be able to access streamlined visa processing directly.

The implementation is expected to attract more overseas students.
