You must satisfy the condition that you have a genuine intention to stay in Australia temporarily. The GTE requirement applies to all student visa applicants. Your Actual profile and Statement of Purpose / GTE Statement is a key to fulfill the GTE Criteria.
When assessing the GTE requirement, DIBP (Department of Immigration and Border Protection, Australia) will consider the requirements set out in direction number 69. To assess this, they will consider:
- Your circumstances (Education, Family Income, Employment etc…)
- Your immigration history
- If you are under 18 years old, the intention of your parent, legal guardian or partner
- any other relevant matter.
The GTE requirement provides a useful way to help identify those applicants who are using the student visa programme for motives other than gaining a quality education. The requirement is not designed to exclude students who, after studying in Australia, go on to develop the skills required by the Australian labour market and apply to become permanent residents.
The officer assessing the visa will consider whether the individual circumstances of the student indicates that their intention is for a temporary stay in Australia. The genuine temporary entrant (GTE) requirement is an integrity measure to ensure that the student visa programme is used as intended and not as a way for international students to maintain ongoing residency in Australia.
For Example: If you have previous Australian Student visa refusal, Majority of Education agents and Institutes will refuse to process your application. Similarly in your graduation, if you had too many Backlogs, Majority of Education agents and Institutes will refuse to process your application.
