• Conclusion and Experience Sharing

Clear study purpose

The most common reason for student visa refusal is due to a questionable study purpose. If the applicant cannot convince the Department of Immigration on this issue, it is certain that the student visa will not be granted. If the main applicant or secondary applicant has a record of visa refusal, explanations must be provided carefully.

The source of living expenses and school fees

Many student visa applications were refused due to reasons related to source of funds. The Department of Immigration placed great importance on the legality of income source. Even though the person who provides financial support can do so adequately, if the legality of income source cannot be proven, the student visa application is more than likely to be refused.


Pay attention to Phone Interviews:
Currently, all offshore electronic student visa applications need to go through a phone interview. If the applicant takes the phone interview too lightly and assumes that it is less important in the application process, the possibility of facing refusal is considerably high.
