GTE - Genuine Temporary Entrant

GTE stands for “Genuine Temporary Entrant”. As the name suggests, this word is used for students who are willing to go to Australia for a genuine reason. The Sub-class 500 of Australia which deals with the visa granting process for students uses this word. The main goal is for the student to prove to the Australian embassy that he/she intends to go to Australia temporarily, however long the degree or course may be and has no intentions of settling permanently in Australia. The Migration Act’s ministerial direction 69 deals with the GTE process and encloses all the details of the GTE process. This article also covers the australia study visa requirements for pakistani students 2022.

The first and foremost step is to apply to top Australian Universities and receive offer letters from them. Once you have received an offer letter from your desired university, the next immediate step is to fulfil the GTE requirements. Numerous questions are posed by students who are concerned about the hectic process and what is the importance of this GTE process. This is because many universities from various other countries like the US, UK, Canada, or Germany don’t have any such requirements. Therefore, students feel that the process of getting an Australian student visa is comparatively difficult. 

When applying for an Australia student visa, students sometimes have to collect a large sum of educational and other visa-related documents. The collection of over 50 documents makes the whole process very hectic and only a small number of students fulfil all the requirements of GTE Australia. Therefore, a plethora of documents is one of the biggest challenges of the Australian visa. 

In case you have completed all of the documents, the Australian immigration demands different things from you: 

  • Details of your educational background

  • Reasons for any gap years

  • Current employment details

  • Ties with your home country

  • Economic condition of your home country 

  • Employment in a third country

  • Details of any family members already in Australia

  • Any previous immigration details

These are the questions in the GTE questionnaire/form that is provided to students. While these questions seem very straightforward, we highly recommend you take professional assistance while filling out this form. Each question is designed specially to extract as much information as the Australian immigration officials can and any minor mistakes may result in a rejection of the Australian student visa.

An important point to look at is the “previous immigration details”. There are numerous cases where students apply to universities in the US, UK, Canada, or any other country, and the visas were not granted. Afterwards, the students opt for an Australian visa. In such a case, the chances of successfully gaining the visa drop considerably. However, it is not impossible. Edify Group has helped many students who were facing such a scenario and they were successfully granted the Australian visa. It is very difficult to justify the previous refusals, however, with our team of professionals, we can help you in this regard. 

Another important requirement set by Australia is regarding the sponsors of your studies. Australia demands that whoever the sponsor may be, the students have to prove the financial situation of the sponsor. The minimum amount to be shown is different for different cases. For example;

  • In the case of an individual person, you have to show that your sponsor has earned at least $62,222 (Australian Dollars) in the previous year. 

  • In case you are applying for the visa with your spouse or your child, you have to show that the sponsor has earned at least $72,592 (Australian dollars)

The documents required for this are:

  • NTN number

  • Bank statements

  • Official letterheads

In short, a whole flowchart has to be drawn, proving the finances of the sponsor. This also includes the details of the business/job the sponsor is doing.

Furthermore, the relationship between the sponsor and you is also to be proven. This would include a consent form, an application mentioning the details of your sponsor, how they will provide the finances for your education and other expenses, etc. 

Many students are reluctant and do not see the logic behind this. However, keep in mind that once your application is submitted, you are not physically present in front of the board or the immigration officers. Your set of documents is doing the talking on your behalf. Hence, it is imperative to paint a clear picture of each and everything for the visa officer so to ensure a successful visa-granting process. 

All of this is governed by the Migration act of 1958, therefore this process can not be bypassed. However, many universities have the prerogative of assessing your own GTE application. Some universities are lenient in the assessment, whereas some universities are extremely strict. Strict universities may require proof of each and everything, from the source of your money to the payment of your fee. 

Do note that the universities that are lenient are comparatively expensive. We usually guide our students and readers to not worry about the whole lengthy process because it has its advantages. Once you have been through the hectic screening process, you and the university both are satisfied with the application and this results in a sure-shot visa. However, the process is highly technical and it is always suggested to have professional guidance while moving forward with your application.
