简化签证审理流程(SVP)范围拟将扩展至非大学教育机构

字体: - -

      2013年10月29日移民与边境保护部部长宣布,简化签证审理流程(SVP)的范围拟将扩展至移民风险较低的非大学教育机构。
      目前适用于大学的SVP方案将扩展至在某些移民风险较低的教育机构就读本科、硕士或博士课程的学生。该政策将于2014年3月份开始实行。
      符合条件的教育机构将会在2013年11月的第一个星期收到移民与边境保护部的加入SVP的邀请函。
      自2012年3月24日,SVP开始适用于入读大学的申请人。此次新政没有对此作出任何更改,也不影响原有政策的继续实施。
      什么是SVP?
      现行的SVP适用于申请到参与了该简化流程大学就读的学生。不论国籍,申请人只要持有参加SVP的澳洲大学的本科、硕士、博士课程或者符合要求的交换课程的CoE,其签证申请将按照较低的移民风险级别审理,同目前的一级风险类似。
      要想参与SVP,对教育机构有什么要求?
      要想参与SVP,教育机构必须主动在澳大利亚联邦政府招收海外学生院校及课程注册登记(CRICOS)上进行注册。
      每一个CRICOS号码代表一个独立的教育机构,并能决定其是否有资格加SVP扩展方案。
      什么时候能依据SVP扩展方案申请学生签证?
      SVP适用范围扩展至某些移民风险较低的教育机构学生,该方案预计于2014年3月开始实行。
      SVP目前适用于那些参与了简化流程的澳洲大学的学生。
      如何知道就读的教育机构是否参与了SVP扩展方案?
      立法机构将列出参与SVP扩展方案的教育机构的名单,2014年实施之前将在移民与边境保护部的网站上公布。
      SVP扩展方案将如何实施?
      根据SVP扩展方案,不管申请人的国籍、签证类别及课程是什么,只要其持有参与了SVP的澳洲大学的CoE,那么其签证申请将按照较低的移民风险级别审理,不再按照较高风险级别的要求来提供证明材料。
      申请人仍需要有一定的英语能力以顺利完成学业,在澳洲期间有足够的资金支持,且满足真实临时入境者要求。
      所有的申请人都要满足基本的要求,如购买保险,满足健康和品格方面的要求。移民与边境保护部仍有可能就申请人所声明的内容要求其提供证明材料。
      澳大利亚国际开发署或者国防项目的学生签证(576签证)不包括在SVP扩展方案之内。
      扩展SVP范围有哪些好处?
      在SVP扩展方案下,学生和教育机构更有理由相信签证的审理速度将会加快。
      此方案也会使学生签证申请过程更加简便,即使学生申请较高风险级别的签证,也无需提供同样的证明文件。
      如果适用于SVP的扩展方案,能否网上申请?
      SVP不改变现有的网上申请流程。就是说,如果学生现在不能网上递交学生签证申请,那么在SVP扩展方案下也不能网上递交申请。
      要想适用于SVP的扩展方案,需要拿到教育机构出具的哪些文件?
      要想满足SVP扩展方案的要求,学生在提交签证申请时需要提供学校出具的CoE。此CoE上的课程必须是学士、硕士、博士课程或者是符合条件的交换课程。
      如果只持有教育机构出具的Offer,能否满足SVP扩展方案的审理要求?
      不能。学生在递交签证申请时必须提供学校出具的CoE才能适用于SVP的审理办法。
      如果申请的是打包课程或授权课程,是否能按照SVP扩展方案审理?
      如果申请的是打包课程,那么学生所有的预科课程都必须在参加了SVP的非大学教育机构或其指定的合作机构完成。
      如果学生申请的是无学位的学生交换课程或海外学习课程与预科的打包课程,那就不能按照SVP而是根据适用的风险等级进行审理。
      如果不在SVP扩展范围内,是否还能申请学生签证?
      能。如果不适用于SVP的审理办法,学生仍可以根据现有的风险等级框架申请学生签证。
      如果所选的教育机构不在SVP范围之内怎么办?
      如果所选的教育机构不在SVP扩展范围之内,学生需要根据现有学生签证申请流程提出申请。
      根据立法修改程序,移民局提出取消AL4和AL5风险等级,并减少对AL3签证申请人的资金要求,以简化风险等级框架。这些改变有利于不在SVP范围内的学生申请学生签证。
      移民局如何选择参加SVP扩展方案的教育机构?
      只有那些被认为移民风险较低的教育机构才能受邀加入扩展SVP扩展方案。
      教育机构的移民风险等级是根据移民局系统中的评估数据来评定的,这个系统中记录了教育机构潜在和现有的国际学生与其之间的关系情况。其中包括学生签证拒签情况,及计划入读此学校的签证申请人和已经入读的学生是否遵守签证条款和是否有舞弊行为等。
      为了提高移民局对教育机构移民风险等级评定的可信度,在2012-2013报告期内,该教育机构必须在移民局的系统中登记有至少100位具有有效学生签证的学生。
      此项移民风险等级评定方法与大学SVP和风险等级框架的评定是一致的。
      此项拟将扩展的SVP审理办法是否会与适用于大学的SVP一样?
      大学和非大学的SVP审理办法非常相似,并都适用于未来在合适的大学或非大学教育机构参加学士、硕士、博士学位课程或符合条件的交换项目课程的国际学生。

Proposed extension of streamlined visa processing to non-university education providers
      The Minister for Immigration and Border Protection announced the proposed extension of streamlined visa processing to certain low immigration risk non-university higher education providers on 29 October 2013.
      Streamlined visa processing arrangements, similar to those currently in place for universities, are proposed to be extended to prospective students of selected low immigration risk education providers who offer bachelor, master's or doctoral degree level courses. We intend for these proposed arrangements to commence in March 2014.
      Eligible providers would receive an invitation to participate from the Department of Immigration and Border Protection in the first week of November 2013.
      Streamlined visa processing for certain university applicants has been operating since 24 March 2012. There will be no change to these arrangements or how they operate as a result of this announcement.
      See: Streamlined Student Visa Processing

      What is streamlined visa processing?
      Streamlined visa processing is currently in place for certain prospective students of participating universities. Student visa applications that are lodged with a Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE) from a participating university in Australia for a bachelor, master's or doctoral degree or an eligible exchange programme are assessed as though they are a lower immigration risk, similar to the current Assessment Level 1, regardless of the applicant's country of origin.
      More information about assessment levels is available on the department's website:

      See: Student Visa Assessment Levels
       What is an education provider for the purpose of streamlined visa processing?
      For the purposes of streamlined visa processing arrangements, an education provider must be actively registered on the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS).
      Each CRICOS code is considered as a separate education provider for the purpose of determining an education provider's eligibility to participate in the extended streamlined visa processing arrangements.
      When can I apply for a student visa under the proposed extended streamlined visa processing arrangements?
      The proposed extension of streamlined visa processing for prospective students of selected low immigration risk higher education providers is intended to commence in March 2014.
      Streamlined visa processing is currently available to certain prospective students of participating universities in Australia.
      How do I know if my education provider is participating in the proposed extended streamlined visa processing arrangements?
      The legislative instrument listing the education providers participating in the proposed extended arrangements would be published on the department's website closer to the implementation date in 2014.
      How will the proposed extended streamlined visa processing arrangements work?
      Under the proposed extended arrangements, student visa applicants with a CoE from a participating education provider in Australia would be assessed as though they were a lower immigration risk and are generally not required to provide the same amount of documentary evidence that is required for higher assessment levels, regardless of their country of origin, visa subclass or course of study.
      Applicants would still need to have a level of English language proficiency to enable them to complete their studies, be able to support themselves financially for the duration of their stay; and satisfy the genuine temporary entrant requirement.
      All applicants would still be subject to basic requirements such as having health insurance and meeting the health and character requirements. The department can still request documentary evidence to verify an applicant's claims.
      Students on an AusAID or Defence (subclass 576) visa are not included in the proposed streamlined visa processing arrangements.
      What are the benefits of the proposed extended streamlined visa processing arrangements?
      Under the proposed extended streamlined visa processing arrangements, education providers and students can have greater confidence that visa applications would be processed faster.
      The arrangements also make the visa application process easier for students as they are not required to provide the same levels of documentary evidence needed for higher assessment levels.
      If I am eligible for the proposed extended streamlined visa processing will I be able to lodge my application online?
      Streamlined visa processing does not change the online lodgement arrangements that are currently in place. That is, if you do not have access to online lodgement for student visa applications currently, you would not gain access to online lodgement under the streamlined visa processing arrangements.
      What will I need from an education provider to be eligible for the proposed extended streamlined visa processing?
      To be eligible for the proposed extended streamlined visa processing, you would need to provide a CoE from a participating education provider when you lodge your student visa application. This CoE must be for either a bachelor, masters or doctoral degree or an eligible exchange programme.
      Will I be eligible for the proposed extended streamlined visa processing if I only have a letter of offer from an education provider?
      No. You must provide a CoE from a participating education provider when you lodge your application to be eligible for the proposed extended streamlined visa processing.
      Will I be eligible for the proposed extended streamlined visa processing if I am enrolled in a package of courses or an enabling course?
      If you enrol in a package course, all your preliminary courses must be at your non-university education provider participating in the streamlined visa processing arrangements or a nominated educational business partner of your non-university participating education provider.
      Students who combine a non-award student exchange or study abroad program course with any preliminary course(s) would not be eligible for streamlined visa processing and would be assessed according to the applicable assessment level.
      Can I still apply for a student visa if I am not eligible for the proposed extended streamlined visa processing?
      Yes. If you are not eligible for the proposed extended streamlined visa processing you can still apply for a student visa under the existing assessment level framework.
      What if my preferred education provider is not part of the arrangements?
      Students need to apply under the existing student visa application processes if their preferred education provider is not a participant in the proposed extended streamlined visa processing arrangements.
      Subject to the legislative change process, the department proposes to simplify the Assessment Level Framework by removing AL4 and AL5 and reducing the financial requirements for AL3 visa applicants. These proposed changes would benefit student visa applicants not subject to streamlined visa processing arrangements.
      More information about how to apply for a student visa can be found on the department's website.
      See: Student subclass options
      How has the department determined which education providers will be invited to participate in the proposed extended streamlined visa processing arrangements?
      In order to be invited to participate in the proposed extended streamlined visa processing arrangements, education providers must be assessed to be of low immigration risk.
      An education provider's immigration risk level is calculated by assessing data held in departmental systems relating to prospective and actual international students associated with that provider. This includes data about student visa refusals, including fraud, and compliance with visa conditions relating to student visa applicants intending to study at the provider's institution, as well as actual students who have visas linked to that institution.
      In order for the department to have statistical confidence in the assessment of an education provider's immigration risk, an education provider must be recorded in the department's systems as having at least 100 students with active student visas during the 2012–13 reporting period.
      This method of determining immigration risk is consistent with the approach used for the university streamlined visa processing arrangements and the Assessment Level Framework settings.
      Will the proposed extended streamlined visa processing arrangements be the same as those available to universities?
      Streamlined visa processing arrangements for both universities and non-universities would be very similar and available for prospective international students enrolled in bachelor, masters, doctoral degree or eligible exchange programme courses, at either an eligible university or eligible non-university education provider.
      Where do I go for more information?
      The latest information is published on the department's website.
