Universal Visa – Study & Settle Abroad

Australia Student and 485 Fees Wavier


COVID-19 testing and treatment

Even if you don’t have a visa, or are unsure about your visa status, you must follow public health directions. If you are feeling unwell, seek medical attention and get tested for COVID-19.

State and territory governments are offering free COVID-19 testing and treatment.

I have, or wish to apply for, a Student visa

Support for international students and graduates

Australia remains a high quality and welcoming destination for international students. The Government has announced a range of visa measures to support students.

The measures will be temporary and will continue for as long as necessary. See Minister’s media release.

Student visa fee

We will waive the visa application fee to allow you to lodge a further student visa application to complete your study. This will be available to students who held a student visa on or after 1 February 2020 and who couldn’t complete their course within their original visa validity due to the impacts of COVID-19. This includes students who:

  • deferred their study as they were unable to enter Australia due to travel restrictions
  • were forced to reduce to a part-time study load
  • were unable to complete their work-based training or placements.

This measure is not intended for students who are applying for a new student visa due to ordinary reasons (including if you have failed a course or a unit of study, deferred for personal reasons or voluntarily reduced your study load.)

To have your application for a fee waiver considered, you must apply for a Student visa and attach a completed Form 1545 COVID-19 Impacted Student (PDF – 228 KB) from your education provider with a valid Student visa application.

You must apply for your Student visa online.

You can be in or outside Australia when you apply.

If applying for a fee waiver in Australia, a Bridging visa will not be issued automatically as the fee exemption must be checked first.

This waiver only applies to the visa application fee.

Refunds will not be available for students who have already applied for a Student visa. Only new applications will be eligible to have the application fee waived.

Form 1545 COVID-19

Education providers need to be satisfied that a student, who held a student visa on or after 1 February 2020, could not complete their course within their original visa validity due to COVID-19.

Questions 6 and 7 on the form only need to be completed for students who have deferred their study.

Students can provide further evidence of their COVID-19 related impacts with the completed form.

Temporary Graduate (Subclass 485) visa eligibility

We have changed the requirements for a Temporary Graduate (subclass 485) visa for those who have been impacted by COVID-19:

  • online study undertaken outside Australia as a result of COVID-19 travel restrictions will count towards the Australian Study Requirement for existing and new student visa holders
  • graduates affected by COVID-19 travel restrictions will be able to apply for and be granted a Temporary Graduate visa outside Australia (where they have met all the requirements).

Online study outside Australia is counted from the time of Student visa grant.

If you are applying from outside Australia you must hold or have held a Student visa in the past 12 months to apply.

Offshore student visa grants

While we have continued to process applications, we have recommenced granting visas for students who lodged a Student visa application outside Australia where all the requirements are met.

While travel restrictions remain in place, you cannot travel to Australia.

Flexible timeframes for additional information – English tests, biometrics and health

We allow additional time for you to provide English language test results if you were unable to take a test because of COVID-19. Additional time will also be allowed for biometrics collection and health checks where COVID-19 disrupted access to services.

Where you have made an appointment for one or more of these services, which is more than 28 days into the future, you may attach your booking confirmation in ImmiAccount.

Current Student visa conditions

We’re taking a flexible approach where COVID‑19 restrictions have prevented Student visa conditions being met. You will not be in breach of your Student visa conditions if you:

  • have an approved course deferral
  • are studying online.

You are also temporarily allowed to work more than 40 hours per fortnight if you are:

  • employed in the health sector, enrolled in a health related course (such as nursing or medicine) and are directed by a health official to assist in the effort against COVID‑19
  • employed in aged care by an Approved Provider or Commonwealth-funded aged care service provider before 8 September 2020
  • employed by a registered National Disability Insurance Scheme provider before 23 April 2020
  • employed in the agriculture sector

See Temporary relaxation of working hours for student visa holders.

When to notify us

You don’t need to notify us if you return home, or if your study situation changes.
Your visa remains valid until you lodge another visa application, or your visa expires. The status of your visa will not change if you return home or defer your studies.

Education providers can issue a new Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE) and enrol students to study online. If you hold a valid student visa, your education provider will provide us with your new CoE.

If you have an open student visa application, you can attach your new CoE to your application through ImmiAccount.

Students with financial difficulties

Student visa holders should stay in touch with their education providers about the range of support available to them.

Many universities and education providers offer support to students such as:

  • including deferral of fees, studies or payments
  • food and accommodation support
  • mental health and other medical support.

For more information, see Study Australia website.

Return of international students to Australia

Arrangements for the return of international students to Australia will be made once it is safe to do so, and in a way which protects the Australian community.

More information

Information for international students is available across a range of Government agencies, including:


Covid-19 Restrictions

COVID-19 restrictions

Australian travel restrictions

The Australian Government have strict border measures in place to protect the health of the Australian community. Currently only Australian citizens, Permanent residents and immediate family members can travel to Australia. You cannot come to Australia unless you are in an exempt category or have been granted an individual exemption to the current travel restrictions.

For more information on whether you can travel and how to seek an exemption to the travel restrictions refer to the Department of Home Affairs website here.

Visa processing arrangements and disruption of services

We are prioritising processing visa applications for those travellers in the exempt categories to support urgent travel.

A number of services are impacted by the current COVID-19 situation resulting in considerable delays to applicants obtaining requested information. We are aware applicants are experiencing delays in obtaining biometrics, health checks, police clearances, documents from government agencies and many others.

You will be afforded additional time to provide this information.  You do not need to contact us to seek an extension of time.  Please attach your documents to your online application through ImmiAccount as soon as you are able.  Please do not send duplicate documents or confirmation emails to this mailbox.

Biometric collection appointments for Bangladesh, Bhutan and Nepal

Biometric collection services have resumed at the following existing biometrics collection locations:

– VFS Thimphu on Monday 2 November

– VFS Dhaka on Monday 2 November

– VFS Kathmandu on Wednesday 4 November

The resumption of biometrics collection services through the Australian Visa Application Centres (AVACs) and Australian Biometrics Collection Centres (ABCCs) is dependent on in-country COVID-19 restrictions.

In addition, collection centres offer enquiry and assisted online lodgement services. Paper applications cannot currently be accepted due to COVID restrictions and border closures.

You can use your existing Requirement to provide personal identifiers (biometrics) letter to book and attend an appointment. If you have applied for your visa online, a copy of this letter is available in your ImmiAccount.

You must contact your local AVAC or ABCC to arrange an appointment. You can check our website for updated information on AVACs and ABCCs including contact information and opening times in your country. See: Offices outside Australia

Australian Waiver fees for All Visa

Some visa holders, or other persons, who have paid a Visa Application Charge (VAC) in connection with a visa application and who have been affected by Australia’s COVID-19 travel restrictions can access a refund or a waiver of their Visa Application Charge (VAC).

If you are eligible for a VAC refund, use the Covid-19 travel restrictions VAC refund request form.

For further information about other VAC refund provisions, refer to Getting a refund.

Prospective Marriage visa

Changes have been introduced to support Prospective Marriage (Subclass 300) visa holders, former visa holders and visa applicants unable to enter Australia due to COVID-19 travel restrictions.

Visa Extensions

On 10 December 2020, Prospective Marriage visa holders or former visa holders who were outside Australia on that day, and who held a Prospective Marriage visa at any time between 6 October 2020 and 10 December 2020 had their visa validity period extended to 31 March 2022.

Individual visa holders have been notified by the Department.

You can use VEVO to check your visa details and conditions.


Visa Application Charge (VAC) refunds

Refunds are being provided where COVID-19 related travel restrictions have impacted the ability of the visa holder to travel to Australia.

If your Prospective Marriage visa validity period was extended on 10 December 2020, the payer of the VAC may request a refund if:

  • you have not travelled to Australia after 10 December 2020 as a holder of this visa; and
  • at the time of request for the refund, either:
    • Your visa has ceased to be in effect or was cancelled at your request; or
    • If your visa is currently in effect, you have asked the Minister to cancel your visa.

Generally a refund request can only be made by the person shown as the ‘payer’ on the original VAC receipt. Refund requests must be made by 31 December 2022.

If your visa is still in effect, prior to requesting a refund, you must first use your ImmiAccount to request the cancellation of your Prospective Marriage (subclass 300) visa.

If you are eligible for a VAC refund, use the Covid-19 travel restrictions VAC refund request form.

Former Prospective Marriage visa holders

If your Prospective Marriage visa ceased between 20 March 2020 and 5 October 2020 the payer of the VAC may be eligible for a VAC refund if your visa ceased while you were outside Australia.

Alternatively, the payer of the VAC may be eligible for a VAC refund if your visa ceased between 20 March 2020 and 5 October 2020 while you were in Australia, and you were unable to marry your sponsor before your visa ceased because of restrictions imposed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. This may include for example quarantine requirements and intrastate or interstate travel restrictions. Refunds are not available if you did not marry your sponsor because COVID-19 related restrictions:

  • limited the number of guests able to attend your proposed wedding
  • prevented guests, or particular guests, from attending your proposed wedding
  • prevented the proposed wedding taking place at the time or location preferred by you and your sponsor.

Generally a refund request can only be made by the person shown as the ‘payer’ on the original VAC receipt. If you are eligible for a VAC refund, use the Covid-19 travel restrictions VAC refund request form.

VAC refunds are not available if:

  • your Prospective Marriage visa was cancelled by the Minister (unless you have requested for it to be cancelled)
  • you had lodged an application for a Partner (subclass 801) visa and paid a reduced VAC because you held a Prospective Marriage visa
  • at the time your visa ceased you or your sponsor had advised the Department that you no longer intend to marry.

For former Prospective Marriage visa holders, the processing of any subsequent Prospective Marriage or Partner visa applications made will be given priority. Processing times for applications will depend on whether the application is complete and meets all the requirements for the visa.

Prospective Marriage visa applicants

To assist Prospective Marriage visa applicants unable to enter Australia due to COVID-19 related travel restrictions, Prospective Marriage visas granted from 27 February 2021 may have a visa validity period of between 9 to 15 months. This is a change from the previous standard 9 months validity. The validity period for a Prospective Marriage visa granted on or after 27 February 2021 will depend on the circumstances of the applicant.

You can use VEVO to check your visa details and conditions.

Pacific Labour Scheme and Seasonal Worker Program

To be eligible for a VAC refund for a Pacific Labour Scheme or Seasonal Worker Program subclass 403 visa, the following must be met:

  • the visa was granted  before 20 March 2020
  • the visa holder could not travel to Australia on that visa for the first time before their visa arrival date
  • the refund request is submitted on or before 31 December 2021
  • the visa ceased before the decision on the refund request
  • the visa was not cancelled for reasons other than at the visa holder’s request.

Generally a refund request can only be made by the person shown as the ‘payer’ on the original VAC receipt.

If you are eligible for a VAC refund, use the Covid-19 travel restrictions VAC refund request form. VAC refund requests must be lodged by 31 December 2021.

Temporary Skill Shortage or Temporary Work (Skilled) visa holders

If you are outside Australia and held a Temporary Skill Shortage or Temporary Work (Skilled) visa on or after 1 February 2020, which has since ceased, you will be eligible for a VAC waiver for a subsequent Temporary Skill Shortage (subclass 482) visa application if:

  • you were unable to enter Australia because of COVID-19 travel restrictions before your visa ceased; or
  • you travelled to Australia and departed after 1 February 2020 but were unable to return to Australia before your visa ceased due to COVID-19 travel restrictions.

Applicants are required to have a valid nomination. Applications must be lodged before 31 December 2022.

Working Holiday Makers

If you were granted a Working Holiday Maker visa and it expired or will expire between 20 March 2020 and 31 December 2021 while you are outside Australia, you may be able to receive a VAC waiver for a future application, or a refund. A VAC waiver will be available for a future application if you were unable to travel to Australia because of travel restrictions or had to leave Australia early due to COVID-19.

If you cannot be granted another WHM visa because you no longer meet the age requirement, you can request a VAC refund using the Covid-19 travel restrictions VAC refund request form.

Applications with a VAC waiver and VAC refund requests must be lodged by 31 December 2022.

Applications with a VAC waiver for working holiday makers will be available in mid-2021.

Further information will be made available once arrangements are finalised.


Visitor visa applicants outside Australia whose previous Visitor (subclass 600) visa expired, or will expire, between 20 March 2020 and 31 December 2021 may be able to receive a VAC waiver for a future Visitor visa. Travellers who hold a visa must also have an exemption to Australia’s travel restrictions before travel and will need to apply for this separately to their visa application. Apply for travel exemption. Applications for a future Visitor visa with a VAC waiver must be lodged by 31 December 2022.

Canada PostStudyWorkRights will not be affected by online classes whether your visa is granted and your staying in India

Canada PostStudyWorkRights will not be affected by online classes whether your visa is granted and your staying in India

Well done -Canada

The Government of Canada’s Update on Post-Graduation Work Permit Eligibility for International Students undergoing Online Classes:

Due to the effect of COVID-19 most of the Canadian Institutions have decided to offer classes online since the students are not able to travel overseas because of the travel restrictions.

IRCC has announced that if the in-class courses are moved to an online format because of COVID-19, the eligibility for the Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP) Program will not be affected. International students in this situation may begin their classes while outside Canada and complete up to 50% of their program outside Canada if they cannot travel to Canada sooner.

Students will now be able to start or continue their courses from their home countries and travel to Canada when it’s safe for them and yet be eligible for the Post-Graduation Work Permit subject to them doing at least 50% of their program in Canada.

Why choose Europe for study?

Every year, millions students study abroad in Europe. Europe is the place to be – if you are European and want to go to another country to gain international experience, or if you are from another continent and want to study here.

Study.EU has collected the 7 best reasons to study in Europe:

1. Study in Europe: the boost for your career

International experience has become more and more important in recent years. Large and small companies alike look for employees who have left their “comfort zone”. By studying abroad in Europe, you set the course for your career success. Many European countries also make an effort to convince foreign graduates to stay after university. That means if you decide to study in Europe, the chances are good that you will get a job offer and can stay for the longer term.

2. Europe offers world-class education and research

Many of the world’s best universities are located in Europe. Cross-border cooperations within Europe have shaped a strong international academic community that conducts cutting-edge research.

3. A wide range of education options

There are thousands of universities in Europe, offering tens of thousands of study programmes in English. You can find programmes in any academic discipline from Arts to Zoology; small, intimate universities or large international research centers; cutting edge academic research programmes or practice-oriented taught education. There is something for everybody.

4. Tuition fees are low

Compared to countries like the US, Canada or Australia, the tuition fees at most public universities in Europe are very low. In some European countries, there aren’t even any tuition fees – studying at university is free of charge! There are also lots of scholarship opportunities and other options for financial support during your studies.

5. It’s easy to travel and discover the whole continent

When you study in Europe, you should use the chance to see more countries than just one. Thanks to a wealth of cheap flight, train and bus connections, and relatively short travel times, that is even possible on a limited student budget and with tight semester schedules.

If you are a non-European citizen studying within the Schengen Area of 26 European states then you can easily obtain a student visa allowing you to visit other countries of the Schengen Area. Think of all the great experiences you can gain even far away from campus.

6. The higher education systems are well-respected and aligned

Thanks to the Bologna process of reforms, the national higher education systems of all European countries have been aligned. That means that any Bachelor or Master in Europe follows the same general academic framework. So, if you obtain your Master’s degree in Sweden, it will be equivalent to a Master’s degree from Germany, Lithuania or the United Kingdom.

7. You can study in English

Not only are there several thousand Bachelors and Masters in English that you can choose from. In most European countries, the proficiency in English is generally very high. That means even if you struggle to learn the basics in Polish, Portuguese or Swedish, you can always get by with English in everyday situations.



Why choose Singapore?

1. Excellent education system

Singapore offers a progressive education system with state-of-the-art facilities. The standard of education is excellent across all levels, starting right from the primary level. Apart from the public schools, Singapore also has 30+ international schools that follow the foreign education system for children of expatriates. The 5 autonomous universities of Singapore are ranked well globally and all other private institutes of higher education (PEIs) are regulated by the Council for Private Education (CPE.)

2. Cheaper than UK/ USA/ Australia

The best thing about studying in Singapore is its proximity to India which reduces the expanses incurred in this country as compared to major destinations like USA, UK, Canada or Australia. You can balance out your costs if you plan your expenses wisely (for e.g. use public transport which is quite extensive & affordable there.)

3. No language barrier – English spoken widely

Indian students studying in Singapore will not face any problem feeling at home as English widely spoken here and majority of Singaporeans can understand English. Even though the national language of Singapore is Malay, the 4 official languages are Malay, Mandarin, Tamil & English, thanks to the multi-racial nature of Singapore. Students won’t have any difficulty communicating as English is the main language of business & administration.

4. Clean, green and safe country

Thanks to very strict anti-litter policies (a fine of SGD 1000 if you litter for the first time and a fine of SGD 5000 if you repeat the offence!), Singapore is a very spick and span island state and has also earned the nickname of “fine city“! And despite being a completely urbanized state, Singapore is the greenest city in Asia, with its green cover increasing from 36% in the eighties to 47% in 2016 (Centre for Liveable cities.)

The crime rates are low, the streets are safe – even late in the night. Can the country sound any more appealing? Study in Singapore to experience a high standard of living.

5. Multicultural Society

You will not feel alienated in this country as you will see a lot of Indian and Asian faces in Singapore. Singapore’s multicultural society is composed of four major ethnic groups: the Chinese, Malays, Indians and smaller minority groups.  The variety of religions is a direct reflection of the diversity of races living here. Singapore’s principal religions are Buddhism, Islam, Hinduism, and Christianity.

6. Home to many foreign universities

Singapore’s increasing popularity as a business & education hub has attracted a lot of foreign universities of repute to set up their campuses here. S.P. Jain School of Global Management, ESSEC Business School, Queen Margaret University are a few foreign players who have set up base in this country.

7. A Leading Global Business Hub

Ranked by the World Bank in 2016 as the easiest country to do business with, Singapore continues to attract investors and companies thanks to its “business-friendly” nature. It is no wonder that most multinational corporate giants of the world have their presence in Singapore as well. In short, there won’t be any dearth of jobs in this country, which is quite a good reason for students to consider pursuing their higher education in Singapore.

8. A degree from Singapore is valued by employers globally

The National University of Singapore (NUS) ranks 17th, the Nanyang Technological University ranks 117th on the Global Employability University Ranking 2015 indicating that degrees from well-known institutes of Singapore are recognized globally by employers.

9. Enough scholarship opportunities

Even though the country may seem a tad too expensive to Indian students, the good news is that there are many scholarships on offer to help you manage your studies without burning a hole in your pockets!

10. Tuition Grant Scheme (TGS)

This scheme was introduced by the Singapore government for all international (non-Singaporean) students as a way to make the cost of tuition affordable. If you’re an international student pursuing a full-time undergraduate/ diploma course, the government would subsidize (reduce) your course fee, if you sign an agreement where you commit to work in Singapore for at least 3 years after graduation. Sounds like a win-win situation, doesn’t it?
