Visa FAQs

Information about what happens when you change your visa type.

Must I advise Deakin of any change of visa status?

Yes, you are required to advise Deakin of any change of visa status. Ideally, this should be done within 5 working days of the date your visa status changes. You are required to provide scanned copy of new visa and passport to di-q-and-c@deakin.edu.au.

Alternatively, you can present your new visa document and passport to Student Central to forward to di-q-and-c@deakin.edu.au.

Am I considered a domestic student if I get temporary resident status?

No. Students who have temporary resident (TR) status are considered international students for fee purposes. However, if you get a TR visa, you will not be subject to the conditions of an international student visa.

Am I considered a domestic student if I get permanent resident status?

As a permanent resident (PR), you will be considered a domestic student. However, this does not mean that you will be eligible for a Commonwealth Supported Place. You should visit the University fees and charges page for more information.
