2023 is going to be a friendly year for those who want to settle down abroad, especially for students. If you are planning to study in one of the most hospitable countries like Australia, you must speak with visa consultants in Delhi about the new updates in migration policies. 

The year 2020-21 has been very troublesome because of the pandemic, which hampered education to some extent. But thanks to new visa updates, there are fresh opportunities for students to study abroad. Here are six visa updates you should be aware of in 2023.

1. New migration policies in Australia

The education system is back on track with a significant change, allowing students to apply for a preferred course to study abroad. With the signing of the India-Australia free trade agreement, Australia is the first country to modify its migration procedure. If you are one of the students who want to apply for the UG, PG, or Research courses in Australia, this year is best for you because of the favourable government policies.

2. The easy availability of loans

One of the difficulties that a person faces when applying for a visa to study abroad is taking a loan which is a very tiresome process for almost every individual. However, in 2023, it is going to be comparatively simple because of the easy and efficient availability of loans, plus numerous specialised courses to choose from. So, 2023 will be a good year for better career prospects, especially for tier 2 and 3 students.

3. State-sponsored visas in Australia

In Australia, the regional allocation has dramatically increased the number of visas through the state and territories. Subclass 190 and 491, often called state-sponsored visas, will welcome every type of employer up to the age of 45. Also, there will be some relaxation from the states and territories in the application criteria, including increasing their skilled occupations lists. So if you want to apply for a state-nominated visa, grab this opportunity.

4. Quick visa processing 

Subclass 417 and 462 visas can easily be processed and approved in less than 24 hours. So, for Working Holiday Maker applicants, it is a great time to go on a vacation with your loved ones because leisure is also important. The authority that handles immigration citizenship and multicultural affairs in Australia has said that “by ramping up processing in the department of the home affairs and hiring over 400 extra staff, I’m proud to say that we have now processed over four million visas since coming to government”. The expansion of staff in countries like Australia will allow visa processing to be much easier.

5. STEM and other courses

With the rapid change in the migration policies of countries like the US, the UK, Ireland, New Zealand, and Australia, STEM courses will continue to grow in popularity. However, apart from them, non-STEM courses will also witness a huge uptick this year.
