Depending on the type of visa sub-class you hold, you may need to pay additional tuition fees. When you apply to enrol you must declare your TVH status and provide your passport showing your visa sub-class or documentation from the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC). Your enrolment application will not be accepted if you cannot complete your studies before your visa expires.
