need to give this matter priority, including providing all the accompanying
documentation with your visa application, to prevent undue delays. You should keep

visa application throughout the process so that we can plan around your expected
commencement date and provide information and advice in relation to your move to

you receive formal approval from the DIAC.

If you obtain a temporary visa the University will require evidence that you have
reciprocal health cover with Australia or have obtained private health insurance for
the entire period of your stay in Australia.
