AUSTRALIA: Student visa applications are now being rejected by Australian authorities who belong to the Indian states of Punjab and Haryana, as the universities have been reported to not accept and process applications from students in northern India.
The universities in Australia have justified that they would not want to make students too optimistic on the grounds of the low prospects of getting visas from these states. According to Torrens University, only very capable candidates would be chosen.
“We are still seeking more information from the government regarding the reasons behind these states’ disproportionately high visa refusal rates. Future visa requests may be in jeopardy if students from these areas submit applications but are denied visas,” as per officials
The chief executive of the International Education Association of Australia mentioned to the Times Higher Education (THE) that the augmenting numbers of low-quality applications were warned to the international education operators.
The Department of Home Affairs, or DHA, had stated to THE that they are currently not discarding student applications from Gujarat, Haryana, or Punjab.
The Canadian Border Security Agency (CBSA) has incorporated notices to oust 700 Indian students. The admission offer letters that were given by the migration agent from the educational institutions were not real.
The CBSA had given notice that the innocence of the “victims” was not a valid excuse. As of now, they are unable to get hold of any evidence that would prove that the education agent had prepared and organized all the documents.
The failure of Canadian visa authorities is also not accepted by the authorities who issued the visas and allowed the students to enter the country.
