Visa Options

Many international students completing studies in Australia will wish to extend their stay here. There are a number of visa options which can facilitate this:

General Skilled Migration

Students completing 2 years of study in Australia may be eligible to apply for permanent residence through the general skilled program. International students have a number of advantages in applying for skilled migration, including:

  • Onshore Application: Students can apply from within Australia and will be granted a bridging visa allowing them to remain in Australia during processing of their skilled application
  • Additional Points: Points are available for studies in Australia, particularly where completing higher qualifications or studying in a regional area, and also available for work experience in Australia accumulated during study

Company Sponsorship

If you have a job offer with an Australian company, it may be possible for them to sponsor you for either temporary or permanent residence.
