The Acting Minister for Immigration, Citizenship, Migrant Services and Multicultural Affairs Alan Tudge said the changes provide assurance to international students already in Australia and those who haven’t been able to travel due to COVID-19 border closures.
The Minister for Education Dan Tehan also noted that the changes would give international students confidence in their visa arrangements so they can make plans to study in Australia when it is safe to do so.
