November Intake Overview:

As many of you are aware, the November intake for Australia has recently concluded, leaving numerous students who submitted their visa applications eagerly awaiting the outcomes. Some individuals, foreseeing potential delays, wisely submitted their applications to the embassy several months in advance.

However, the current landscape indicates that numerous applicants are still in the waiting game. Interestingly, there has been a significant shift in visa trends in Australia. Notably, the number of visas granted during the November intake was notably lower when compared to the intake scheduled for February 2023.

Expanding our scope to the July intake, it becomes apparent that only a handful of students received their visas, suggesting that Australian immigration authorities are becoming more selective. Even those who applied for their visas during the July intake experienced prolonged waiting periods before their visas were finally approved.

Guidance for November Intake Applicants:

For those of you who submitted your applications for the November intake, results may be expected by the end of November. However, if you haven't received any updates by then, it might be prudent to consider deferring your application to the next intake while awaiting the outcome.

In the event that you decide to defer to the next intake, obtaining an updated Confirmation of Enrolment (COE) from your university is crucial, as the embassy may require it. If your classes are set to commence within the next two to three days and your visa has not arrived, it might be wise to contemplate deferring your intake to avoid potential waste of time and resources.

Insights into the February Intake:

Looking ahead to the upcoming February intake, there is an expectation that the visa approval ratio will be higher. In 2023, the number of visas granted was notably lower compared to the figures for 2022 and 2021. If you are holding out for conditions in Australia to improve before initiating your application, be aware that this approach might cost you nearly a year of waiting.

While patience can be a virtue, those unwilling to sacrifice a year are advised to kickstart their application process now. Keep in mind that colleges and universities require time to process applications, and meeting the Genuine Temporary Entrant (GTE) criterion, a challenging aspect of the process, can be time-consuming. Failure to clear the GTE might necessitate deferring your intake one or two times.

Proactive Application Approach:

To mitigate potential delays and uncertainties, it is advisable to initiate your application in a timely manner. Considering the current visa trends in Australia, applying to Level 1 colleges or well-ranked universities is recommended. The majority of visas granted in 2023 were issued to applicants from either Level 1 colleges or institutions with high rankings.

For those interested in commencing their application for Australia or those with lingering doubts about their profile, our team is readily available for assistance. The assessment of your application will, once again, be provided free of charge. Feel free to reach out to us via the contact number or DM us on Instagram.
