Student visa processing times have increased in the last half of the year, especially for people from “high risk” countries. Although the Department says they’ve abolished country assessment levels, there is still a big difference in processing times depending on the country. For many applicants, student visas are now taking 2 months or even more.
This means that if you’re outside Australia and want to study in Australia, it’s more important than ever to apply early. It’s also important to make sure your confirmation of enrolment is current and that you attend your medical assessment after lodging the visa.
