Under GTE requirement, Student must satisfy the condition that he has a genuine intention to stay in Australia temporarily. Profile of Student and Statement of Purpose / GTE Statement is a key to fulfil the GTE Criteria. The GTE requirement applies to all visa applicants.
When assessing the GTE requirement, DIBP / DHA (Department of Home Affairs Australia) will consider the requirements set out in direction number 69. To assess this, they will consider:
- Circumstances of Student (Education, Family Income, Employment etc…)
- Visa / Immigration history.
- Any other relevant matter.
The Department of Home affairs use GTE requirement to identify visa applicants who are not potential genuine students. They want to stop student visa applicants who want to use the student visa route 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 case officer assessing the visa will consider whether the individual circumstances of the student indicates that their intention is for a temporary stay to study 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.
