Genuine temporary entrant


The genuine temporary entrant (GTE) requirement is an integrity measure to ensure that the student visa programme is used as intended and not as a way for international students to maintain ongoing residency in Australia. GTE is the most important part in student visa application nowadays. 


Student visa applicants should provide evidence of meeting the GTE requirement in their application form. This must include a statement in response to the question in the form and/or documentation to support claims made in the statement such as evidence of employment or a copy of educational qualifications.


You must provide a statement addressing the GTE requirement in English in the application form. If you are not comfortable writing your statement in English, you can write it in your own language, have it translated and then provide the translation in your application. Remember, a decision about whether you meet this requirement can be made based on the information you provide with your application alone. It is important to answer this question.


When assessing the GTE requirement, we will consider the requirements set out in Ministerial Direction 69. To assess this, university and case officer both will consider: 

  • your circumstances
  • your immigration history
  • if you are under 18 years of age, the intention of your parent, legal guardian or spouse of the applicant
  • any other relevant matter.
