The DIBP has clarified that the reason for visa refusal is not qualification from Punjab School Education Board on its own.
Australia’s Department of Immigration and Border Protection has cleared the air about the issue surrounding students from Punjab seeking a visa to study in Australia.
The department has clarified that there have not been any recent changes to the guidelines regarding ‘genuine temporary entrants’.
A spokesperson for the department has told SBS Punjabi that a qualification from PSEB alone is not a reason for refusal.
“A qualification from the Punjab State Education Board is not a reason for refusal on its own.”
