Having recently visited Australia on a Tourist Visa (subclass 600), Mr. A had a wonderful experience with the modern and open environment here. For that reason, despite currently working as an Engineer with a Bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering in Vietnam, he still wishes to study in Australia to better his English, as well as figure out a proper career direction.
Therefore, he came to EMK with the desire to apply for a Diploma in Australia, even though it might be risky due to the fact that he has already held a Bachelor’s degree. Yet, with our dedication and explanation with the Immigration Department, EMK has successfully supported him in converting to a Student Visa (subclass 500).
Thank you for trusting and choosing EMK, and we wish Mr. A every success and memorable experiences in Australia.

Journey from studying abroad to career development in Australia with visa 485
Having accompanied L from the early days of planning to study in Australia, EMK has successfully supported him in obtaining a Visa 500, as well as handling the visa extension process throughout his studies, allowing him to pursue his educational path smoothly. Standing by L’s side on the journey of achieving a Bachelor’s degree in Film Production at SAE Institute, EMK is always ready to assist and consult whenever needed.
With the desire to develop a career in Australia after completing the course at the end of August, L sought EMK’s assistance in applying for a Temporary Graduate Visa. With an additional 2 years to stay in Australia after graduation, we hope that this Visa 485 will provide L with more opportunities to step further in his career path in the future.
Please contact EMK Migration Team today to get professional advice on 485 visa.

Joint media release with the Hon Jason Clare MP and the Hon Brendan O’Connor MP
The Albanese Government is today announcing a package of measures to support integrity in the international education system and to support genuine international students.
International education is our fourth largest export industry and maintaining the quality and integrity of this sector is critical for the Australian economy and our relationships in our region.
The Government has closed a loophole which allows education providers to shift international students who have been in Australia for less than six months from genuine study to an arrangement designed to facilitate access to work in Australia.
There has been a sharp uptake in the use of the concurrent function in 2023 – in the first half of 2023, 17,000 concurrent enrolments were created, compared to approximately 10,500 for the same period in 2019 and 2022 combined.
Recent investigations have identified this misuse of ‘concurrent enrolment’ as an integrity issue for the international sector.
“This change takes effect immediately.“
The Government will also increase the amount of savings international students will need in order to get a student visa. This requirement has not been indexed since 2019 and needs to increase to reflect higher living expenses. From October 1 2023, international students will need to show evidence of $24,505 in savings, which is a 17% increase on current levels. This increase accounts for indexation since 2019.
This change will ensure students coming to Australia to study can afford to support themselves and will not face increased risk of exploitation due to an urgent need for employment.
The Government will apply additional scrutiny to high-risk cohorts and ask for additional documents to prevent fraud in applications.
The Government will also consider using its powers under Section 97 of the Education Services for Overseas Students Act (ESOS Act) to issue suspension certificates to high-risk education providers. A suspension certificate means providers would not be able to recruit international students.
This would be the first time an Australian Government has used this power and reflects how seriously the Albanese Government takes the issue of dodgy providers. The Government will immediately begin consulting on possible regulations to set clear grounds for the use of suspension certificates, such as application rates with fraudulent documents and provider refusal rates. The Government is particularly concerned about more than 200 providers that currently have visa refusal rates higher than 50%.
The Government is considering further measures to strengthen integrity in the international education system as part of the Migration Strategy, which is due to be released later this year.
Quotes attributable to Minister for Education Jason Clare:
“International student numbers are almost back to where they were before the pandemic. That’s a good thing. International education is an extraordinarily valuable national asset.
“But there are also challenges in international education. As students have come back, so have some dodgy and unscrupulous players who are trying to take advantage of them.
“This change will work to stop predatory ‘second’ providers from enrolling students before they have studied for the required six months at their first provider.
“This will help ensure the integrity of one of our biggest exports while cracking down on dodgy operators.”
Quotes attributable to Minister for Skills and Training, Brendan O’Connor:
“These changes reflect our determination to strengthen the integrity of the VET sector.
“Nine out of 10 future jobs will require a post-secondary qualification and VET is a vital pathway to secure jobs. We are committed to lifting perceptions of VET and this is an important step to do that.
“Ensuring we have a fit for purpose VET sector is critical in responding to skills shortages, and teaching and training our existing and future workforce.
Quotes attributable to Minister for Home Affairs Clare O’Neil
“International education is our fourth largest export – it’s essential that we maintain our global reputation for quality education. Our government has no tolerance for people who exploit students.”
“Our message is clear – the party is over, the rorts and loopholes that have plagued this system will be shut down.”
