Genuine Student Assessment

The genuine temporary entrant requirement (GTE) is an integrity measure to ensure that the Student visa Programme is used as intended and not used by international students as a way of maintaining de facto permanent residency in Australia.

In order to be granted a student visa, applicants must satisfy the Australian Government Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) that they have a genuine intention to stay in Australia temporarily, for the purpose of study.

In assessing the GTE requirements, DIBP will consider the requirements set out in Ministerial Direction 53. This requires DIBP to be satisfied that the student visa applicant genuinely intends to stay in Australia temporarily having regard to:

  • The applicant’s circumstances in their home country
  • The applicant’s potential circumstances in Australia
  • The value of the course to the applicant’s future
  • The applicant’s immigration history
  • If the applicant is a minor – the intention of a parent, legal guardian or spouse of the applicant
  • Any other relevant matters

The GTE requirement provides a useful way to help identify those applicants who are using the student visa programme for motives other than gaining a quality education. The GTE requirement is not designed to exclude those students who, after studying in Australia, go on to develop the skills required by the Australian labour market and apply to obtain permanent residency.
