Post-study visa rules may change

Overseas students studying online at Australian Universities may be able to work in Australia after they finish their studies, ​“The Australian” has reported. If you are a student who has had to return to your home country but is still studying online, this would mean you could apply for a temporary graduate visa for Australia with full working rights.

Currently, you must be in the country to apply for a post-study visa in Australia, but sources familiar with the government proposal say the plan is to remove this rule. Many students at Australian Universities have had to return home because of the Covid-19 pandemic and this rule-change will mean they will be able to return to Australia once the pandemic is under control.

Now is the time to start thinking about your visa plans for the future.West Aussie Migration Good knowledge, good advice.
