On 1 January 2010 the department will apply new rules in calculating whether or not a student visa applicant is able to show that he/she has enough money to support himself/herself while in Australia on a student visa.

The new amounts will be:

* $18 000 per year for the main student
* $6300 per year for the student’s partner
* $3600 per year for the student’s first child
* $2700 per year for every other child; and where required

All visa applicants may be asked to prove that the funds they are relying upon to meet the costs of studying in Australia will be genuinely available to them during their stay in Australia. This means that a case officer may ask for additional proof about where the funds come from and how they are held.
