Student Visa
(subclass 500)

The Student Visa (subclass 500) allows recipients to stay in Australia for up to 5 years, dependant on the type and length of the enrolled course. This visa allows an individual to partake in an eligible course of study and bring certain family members with them to Australia.

To be eligible for this visa, there are multiple requirements that need to be met. If the primary applicant is a school student, then there are specific age limits for each grade. Further, if the primary applicant is less than 18 years of age adequate welfare arrangements must be in place for while in Australia. Evidence of enrolment in a course of study must be provided to the Department of Home Affairs, in addition to evidence that the English language, health insurance and financial requirements are met. You must also satisfy several additional considerations, which can include assessments as to your health, character and whether you are a genuine temporary entrant.

The Student Visa application requires a significant amount of evidence. This includes but is not limited to documents to support your identity, enrolment, financial capability for your stay, insurance, your intention to remain in
Australia on a temporary basis (i.e. that you are a genuine temporary entrant’) and English requirements are met. If an application is being made with a partner or any dependants, then separate evidence requirements are also applicable to those additional applicants.

Designated Area Migration Agreement (DAMA): Paving The Way For Skilled Workers And Australian Businesses

Designated Area Migration Agreements (DAMAs) significantly evolved Australia's skilled migration framework, offering a dynamic two-tiered system tailored to regional needs. Diverging from traditional migration pathways, DAMAs permit regions to source a broader range of overseas talent. A foundational five-year "head agreement" with regional representatives is at the helm.

Overhaul Needed For Skilled Migration System To Address Labour Shortages

Australia’s skilled migration system is facing a significant challenge for addressing the country's skill shortage and labour crisis. However, the mandatory job advertisement requirement for employers recruiting skilled migrants has hindered the system's success, as recently pointed out by a review conducted by Martin Parkinson, Joanna Howe, and John Azarias.
