The Department of Home Affair’s defines GTE as ‘The genuine temporary entrant (GTE) requirement is an integrity measure to ensure the student visa program is used as intended and not as a way for international students to maintain ongoing residency in Australia’.
All applicants for a Student visa must show they are coming to Australia temporarily to gain a quality education. The Genuine Temporary Entrant (GTE) requirement is not intended to exclude students who, after studying in Australia, develop skills Australia needs and who then go on to apply for permanent residence.
As an applicant provide a personal statement in English addressing the GTE requirement. If you are not comfortable writing it in English, you can write your statement in your own language and submit a translated copy with your application.
You can provide further details of the written statement in the application form or attach a separate document with supporting documents.
- Transcripts of previous study.
- Statement of Purpose — brief but relevant addressing GTE criteria, include explanation for gaps in previous study.
- Current employment documents – current employer, company address, period of employment and details about the position held.
- Documents showing economic circumstances in home country or country of residence.
- Ties to home country or country of residence – this may include evidence of financial, family or social ties.
Evidence Levels :
- SSVF uses a combination of immigration risk outcomes of the student’s education provider and the student’s country of citizenship to indicate whether the student needs to provide evidence of financial capacity and English language proficiency.
- They are not an indicator for the quality of an education provider or the course they offer
- They do not have any specific bearing on our assessment of GTE.
- Evidence Levels are not published publicly as the information is confidential and sensitive. Individual providers can access their EL on a monthly basis by subscribing to the education provider reports.
