This visa is for applicants whose primary purpose of the visit is to participate in a course of a study.
Visa cost starts from AUD 630 unless you are exempt. Extra charges will be incurred for each family member who applies for the visa.
If you were unable to complete your course in your original visa validity due to COVID-19 and need to apply for a new visa may be eligible for a fee- waiver but you may still have to incur other costs such as health checks, police metrics, and biometrics. Check COVID-19 and the border – Student Visa.
You can compute the cost using the Visa Pricing Estimator.*
*The Estimator does not include the second installment charge and other costs such as health checks, police certificates, and biometrics.
You must provide Confirmation of Enrollment (CoE) to the Department of Home Affairs for each course. Your main course will be the last course you take as a part of the course package and this will help determine what financial and English language skills documentation you must provide.
In case you include a package of courses, the course gaps should be less than two calendar months unless the first course finishes at the end of the standard academic year, November, and the next one starts at the beginning of the standard academic year, February.
Standard visa grant periods apply to packaged courses.
Applications may take longer if:
You need to pay the correct visa application charge for the application to be processed and will be notified if you fail to do so.

You and your family must abide by all Australian laws.
