Guardian Visa


International students under 18 years of age require a guardian. The guardian must be able to provide support, accommodation, food, and general welfare for the child whilst in Australia.

A guardian can be a nominated person in Australia, or a nominated person from overseas (usually a student’s close family member) who can come to Australia and provide care and support to the child.

Guardian visas provide:

  • A chance for the guardian to stay in Australia the same length of time as the student
  • A chance to care and support the student while they are studying in Australia
  • An opportunity to study up to 20 hours per week in an English Language Intensive Course for Overseas Students (ELICOS)
  • An opportunity to study in a course other than ELICOS in Australia for up to three months

The guardian visa must be applied for through the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP). Guardians must also undertake (and pass) a medical examination in their place of residence prior to lodging a visa application. This health examination usually consists of a medical exam, a radiological exam (TB diagnosis) and a HIV test. Guardian applicants may also be required to obtain and hold health insurance coverage and/or provide a character clearance.
