GTE Genuine Temporary Entrant Requirement – Australian Visa

Do you meet the GTE Requirements for an Australian Visa?.

Many applicants for a Temporary visa to Australia need to show they are coming to Australia temporarily for either Tourism or Study purposes.

The Immigration department might need you to prove your Genuine Temporary Entrant [GTE] Requirements.

For student visas, where it is required all the time, this is detailed at:…/genuine-temporary-entrant

For visitor visas this is also often required when an applicant has a partner or boyfriend/girlfriend living in Australia. The GTE Requirement is needed to show that they do not intend to stay after the visitor visa expires.

What is needed often depends a lot on what country you are from, who you are visiting, what visa you are applying for, etc.  The local embassy often makes the decision based on their local knowledge for that country.

There is no simple answer to what you need to show. What works for one person may not work for another.

Two examples:

  • A letter from a boyfriend saying she just wants to visit and will go back after 8 weeks. No job to go back to, no bank account etc. Visa Granted.
  • A job to go back to, letter from employer saying job is still open and expected to be back. Bank account with funds for a few weeks. Visa refused.

But it could be the other way around in another location.

GTE requirements are needed for Student Visas and for some subclass 600 visitor visas, some Working Holiday Visas and others.
