Student visa assessment levels for 38 countries, for one or more Student visa subclasses, will be reduced from 2 April 2011. All applications lodged on or after 2 April 2011 are subject to these new assessment levels.

These changes will lower the minimum evidentiary requirements needed for the grant of a Student visa for the selected countries and education sectors. However, the reductions to assessment levels do not change the likelihood of a former student in Australia obtaining permanent residence.

"Choosing the right migration consultant is difficult.  I consulted with many Migration Agents, but Opal Consulting impressed me a lot.  I applied for a visa for my husband, which was rejected.  After some time my friends suggested that I try "Opal Consulting".  I was amazed with their professionalism and the way they arranged my documents. They kept me up to date throughout the whole process.  We got the visa after 3 months. Yeah!  Finally I was so happy to see my husband after 3 years and with hard struggle."
