INTERNATIONAL STUDENT VISAS
The Australian Government is aware that students are affected by COVID-19 and have offered the following assistance in regards to Visas.
Any queries regarding your visa requirements, enrolment and returning home, please contact Curtin International.
Student Visa Renewal
If your student visa expires before you complete your course you will need to request a new Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE).
This is so that you can apply for a new student visa with the Department of Home Affairs in order to continue your current course of study.
Visit Curtin's website for more information about how to apply.
Extending Student Visa - $0
Students can apply for a Fee Waiver if they need to extend their student visa.
Fill in the form before applying to extend your student visa.
COVID-19 Pandemic Event Visa
If you have finished your studies but cannot return to your home country because of COVID-19 restrictions you can apply for this visa at $0 cost.
Look for the ‘step by step guide’ on one of the tabs which will take you through what is needed. You apply through your ImmiAccount.
For the most current information on visas, immigration and border restrictions, visit the Department of Home Affairs website.
Returning home voluntarily
If you wish to voluntarily return to your home country, the Homeward’s Assisted Returns Program provides students with assistance to return home voluntarily, including assistance with travel forms, organising travel arrangements, and financial assistance with travel related expenses.
Students who are interested can contact the team via their website or call them on 1300 094 663.
If you would like an interpreter to assist you with communicating either in-person or over-the-phone, Translating and Interpreting Services (TIS) provides free interpreting services to people with limited English language proficient.
TIS services can be used for medical appointments, casework and emergency services, real estate agencies, local government authorities and trade unions. Contact TIS on 131 450 or via their website here.
We've put together a list of International Student Financial Support services here.
Student Assist is the free support and advocacy service of the Curtin Student Guild.
Our officers are unbiased, confidential, and—most importantly— run by the Guild, therefore completely independent of Curtin University
