As part of the Australian government’s initiative to slowly review their border policies, they have announced last February 15, 2022 their re-opening of borders for already-enrolled international students based on the latest health advise.
This allows international students already enrolled in a Western Australian primary school, secondary school, university, college, technical college, or other further education course to enter WA from this week.
This is the advantage processing your international student visas early on as countries like Australia prioritizes approved visa holders.
The process of securing a student visa can be intimidating especially if you have not researched or if you are unsure if you are qualified to apply.

Students can either fly direct into Western Australia within the Australian Government-set cap, or indirectly by transiting through another state or territory.
