Australia Student Visa Process

Step 1: Attend a Free Counselling Session

Attend a counseling session at Overseas Partner office to find out your options relating to study destination, courses available and recommended institutions.

Step 2: Register with Overseas Partner

Register with Overseas Partner to start the admission and visa process. We can help you navigate through the various processes and make studying overseas easier. Remember, all our services are free of charge!

Step 3: Apply for admission

Once you have decided what and where you want to study, we will help you complete the application to the institutions of your choice. At the time of application for admission you will be required to submit several documents including proof of previous academic qualifications and in most cases proof of your English language ability. We will also provide you with a checklist for the documents you will need to provide when the time comes to apply for your visa (step 7).

We take the hard work out of tracking the applications by keeping in contact with the institution on your behalf.

Step 4: Pay tuition fee

To accept your offer from an education provider, you must pay the tuition fee. Most Australian institutions require you to pay the first semester fee only. You can choose to pay this fee through either Telegraphic Transfer (TT) or Direct Debit (DD). Our value added services department at Overseas Partner can help you arrange either of these payment methods.

Once the institutions have received and processed your tuition fee payment, they will issue you with an Electronic Confirmation of Enrolment (ECoE). Once we have received this, we will notify you that it is now time to come back into Overseas Partner?? office with your required documents and start the visa application process.

Step 5: Visa lodgment

To lodge your visa application you will need to provide the documents outlined in the checklist we provided you in step 3.

Just like your admission application, Overseas Partner will keep you updated as to the progress of your application and take the hard work out of tracking your application by keeping in contact with the visa office on your behalf.

Step 6: Undertake Medicals

Within 28 days of lodging your visa application, you will need to undertake a medical examination by one of the doctors approved by the Australian Government. A list of the approved panel doctors can be found by visiting: http://www.immi.gov.au/contacts/overseas/i/india/panel-doctors.htm. Once you have undertaken the medical examination, your doctor will forward the medical reports and documents directly to the visa office.

Step 7: Visa outcome

We will notify you as soon as we know the outcome of your visa application so you can come in and collect your grant letter. In most cases this is a positive response and it means you can also start planning your travel and accommodation for Australia!

Step 8: Travel services

At Overseas Partner we can help you organize your travel arrangements to begin your new student life in Australia. Air ticketing, insurance and foreign exchange can all be arranged through us to make studying overseas easier!
