What is Genuine Temporary Entrant?
The Genuine Temporary Entrant (GTE) is a fundamental requirement that student visa applicants must provide as proof that their sole intention of coming to Australia is to acquire quality education and not use the visa as a pathway to gaining residency to Australia.
These are some of the factors that are being considered by the Department of home affairs when assessing an applicant's GTE:
- Proof of financial stability. An applicant must provide evidence that they have enough financial resources to fund their education expenses, health coverage, and the entire duration of staying in Australia
- The applicant's previous academic studies are also a vital indicator of their purpose in pursuing their studies in Australia. A relevance in their previous studies and their application plays an important role when being assessed for the visa. - The time gap between previous studies and current study applications must be justified. - A concrete rationale for not taking the study/course in the applicant's home country or region if a similar study/course is already available there. - The course/study being applied for is suitable enough for the applicant to improve their employability in their home country.
A comprehensive Genuine Temporary Entrant statement greatly affects the Department’s decision in granting student visas, thus applicants must be genuine and honest with their intention of studying in Australia.
