Australia is a country with a very sound legal system and a very low crime rate in the world. It is also one of the safest countries to study abroad. Its education system is also very strict. Therefore, Australia is one of the most popular countries to study abroad at present. However, visa is a key to the door of Australia. How long can an Australian study visa be completed?

Time of application for studying in Australia:

There are two types of visas in Australia: e-visa and ordinary visa.

E-visa is a set of online application operating system developed by Australian Immigration Department to improve the efficiency of student visa approval. With the use and promotion of the electronic visa system, more and more students studying in Australia choose electronic visa. Because the electronic visa is fast, the visa review cycle is greatly shortened. If the physical examination of the applicant is successful, there is no need for further verification by telephone, generally around 3-6 weeks.

In fact, there is no fixed time for the review cycle of e-visa for studying in Australia. There are a lot of visa applications that come out within one month after they are submitted. Usually most of the reviews can be completed within one to two months.

The normal visa takes 3-4 months, and the normal visa is 2 months to receive PVA.

The Australian Immigration Office suggests that all applicants should submit materials 12 weeks in advance, and 6-8 weeks is the trial cycle. Don't hold on to - 8 weeks because of the visa officer's work cycle. If it happens to be at the peak of the trial, or if there are various factors such as the Embassy's internal review or investigation of the submitted materials, the visa officer's leave and so on, it is likely that the visa period will be longer, more than two months, or even longer.

Generally, students admitted in September are recommended to apply for admission in April, while those admitted in February are recommended to apply for admission in November. Leave enough time for parents to deal with unexpected situations.

If the visa officer has a vacation, a change of job, or the last legal holiday we want to see, the whole application will slow down. Therefore, it is recommended that you prepare visa materials half a year in advance and submit your application as soon as possible three months before the start of school. If you use electronic signature, you need to have a simple economic situation and a complex economic source. It is recommended to use universal signature.

Only visa fee will be paid for the application submitted to the Guangzhou embassy for trial.
