Australian Embassy

Applying for a student visa in Israel


Academic information about courses/universities/studies is available on the Internet. See: Study in Australia.

In most cases, you are not required to undergo any health checks in relation to your student visa application. In certain limited circumstances, the Embassy will invite you to undergo some health checks after you lodge your application. Please do not undergo any health checks unless you are invited to do so by the Embassy after you lodge your application.

Applications for student visas are processed according to the date of commencement of studies. This means, that although you may have lodged your application before other students, their application may be processed first, if their studies commence before yours.
Under current policy, the visa, if granted, cannot be given to the student more than 4 months prior to the commencement of studies.

IMPORTANT: You should not book flights or make travel commitments until you have a visa to travel to Australia. The department will not be liable for any financial loss incurred by clients whose visa application was finalised later than expected or where an application is unsuccessful.


Applications for student visas must be lodged on-line.
