Subclass 500 – Student Visa granted with exhaustive immigration history


The client came to us on a Bridging Visa E, he had previously applied for 3 student visas, the third student visa application being deemed as invalid. We were able to successfully obtain a  substantive visa for the client by applying for  a Medical Treatment Visa (Subclass 602) based on the stress and anxiety his visa situation caused him. Once the Medical Treatment Visa had almost expired, the client wanted to remain in Australia and sought to apply for another Student Visa (Subclass 500). 


The complexity of this Student Visa (Subclass 500) application was the applicants exhaustive immigration history. A Student Visa requires the applicant  to meet  Genuine Temporary Entrant Requirements (to demonstrate that you will leave Australia once your visa expires), which was a difficult threshold to meet considering the applicant had a history of numerous student visas. Furthermore, the applicant was transitioning from a Medical Treatment visa (based on mental health issues) to a Student Visa.


We prepared the applicants Student Visa application and a Genuine Temporary Entrant (GTE) submission. The GTE submission addressed the legal requirements in detail, including how the applicant had met all the requirements. The applicant provided all the evidence he had, to demonstrate his ties to his home country, including evidence of a family business and various assets. We used the submission to demonstrate how he would only be in Australia temporarily despite his visa history.


The Department granted the  applicant’s Subclass 500 Student Visa  within less than 6 months, which was much faster than the publicised processing time.
