Call for input - Streamlined Visa Processing (SVP) discussion paper

Monday, November 24 2014

Future directions of Streamlined Visa Processing - consultation process

The Australian Government recognises the strong economic and cultural contribution of our international education sector, and is committed to supporting its growth by streamlining the visa process for genuine overseas students. To this end, the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) has released a discussion paper to evaluate SVP arrangements for the purpose of informing a possible future direction of the student visa programme following the expiry of current policy guidelines that underpin SVP in mid-2016.

ACPET invites all relevant members to submit input to the questions posed in the discussion paper and to provide ideas on the SVP arrangements. There are many questions, so due to time constraints you may only be able to complete some - this is welcome. Please forward your response in a Word document to: by no later than 12 December 2014.

The discussion paper can be found here.
