The majority of youngsters in India want to go abroad to pursue higher studies. Canada is and will always be the number one destination, but now Australia is also not lagging behind. As the new norms related to fees and living expenses are student-friendly, Australia has also become an ideal destination for students.


After the country has lifted its Covid restrictions, many students especially from Punjab and Haryana want to go to Australia, but fraud cases are coming in the way.


The consultants explained that there is an increase in the number of students going to Australia because they need to pay fees in advance only for the first six months and they do not have to pay any living expenses upfront.


Also, if the students want to pursue studies in Australia, they need all six bands in International English Language Testing System (IELTS) with at least 5.5 each in all four modules that include reading, speaking, writing, and listening.


Sometime back, it came into the observation of Australian authorities that some of the travel agents are attaching fake documents with the profiles of students. Now, the authorities are checking and examining each and every document very carefully which is causing delays in the visa of students, especially those who belong to Punjab and Haryana.



Around 600 fraud cases were detected by the Home Department of Australia, as a result of which, the file of each and every student is being extensively scrutinized. In this whole process, the students who are genuine had to pay a huge price, although they had no fault in the same.


Now, only time will tell whether the Australian authorities will find a solution to this problem or all the students will have to go through long queues of waiting.
