Student Visa Conditions

You must follow these student visa conditions when you are on a student visa in Australia.

(Courses) – Remain enrolled in a registered course. Maintain satisfactory attendance in your course and course progress for each study period as required by your education provider.


(Health) – Maintain adequate arrangements for health insurance during your stay in Australia. Under the policy, you must maintain Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC).


(Financial) –  Continue to satisfy the requirements for the grant of your student visa. This means, for example, that you continue to have sufficient financial capacity to support your study and stay in Australia.


(Dependents) – Maintain adequate schooling arrangements for your school-age dependents who joined you in Australia for more than 3 months as part of your student visa application.


(Under 18s) – If you are younger than 18 years of age, you must have accommodation and support, and your general welfare must be maintained for the duration of your stay in Australia.  If your welfare arrangements are approved by your education provider you must not travel to Australia until your welfare arrangements start.
