The Shift from GTE Requirements to GS Requirements

One of the key requirements of your visa application, up until March 2024, was the Genuine Temporary Entrant (GTE) requirement. The GTE criteria intended to satisfy immigration authorities that you are an international student with the willingness and ability to return home after completing your studies in Australia. As of 23rd March 2024, this requirement changed from to the Genuine Student (GS) requirement. The GS requirement intends to encourage students who possess the skills Australia needs to pursue post-study permanent residency!
