Temporary Residence (TR) Visa Refusal Rate Increased Due to GST in 2024

Temporary Residence (TR) Visa Refusal Rate Increased Due to GST in 2024

Last year, over 36,000 temporary residents in Australia applied for student visas. However, the visa approval rate has dropped by 14%, raising concerns for aspiring international students. Government sources estimate that this year, up to 30,000 student visas could be rejected due to failing the genuine student test. Additionally, 41,000 applications might be denied for not meeting the increased English language proficiency requirements.

Is This a Good Move?

It’s too early to say if these changes will be successful. The government needs to ensure they deter non-genuine students without impacting legitimate ones.
