Entry of Indians in Australia is not easy now, you will have to open your pocket as well as your mind

Indian students have always had a craze for studying abroad. Every year lakhs of students apply for visa to go abroad. Australia is one of the many countries where Indians go for studies every year. But, Australia has now implemented new and strict rules for foreign students. With this new rule, it has become more difficult for foreign students to get visa to study in Australia. It is believed that Indian students will be affected the most by this.

In fact, migration in Australia has increased by 60 percent. Due to this, from July 1, the government has either closed all those routes or made entry difficult, due to which people could reach Australia. Visitor visa and graduate visa holders will no longer be able to apply for onshore student visa. It is believed that some Indians are coming to Australia by stealing i.e. tourist visa but later, they get study visa by taking admission in some college.
