Post Study Work Visa (PSWV) Petition

If you think the changes to the Graduate Skilled Visa are unfair, join our petition by registering your name and email address below.

The Council of International Students Australia has also put together a student survey on the PSWV and you may wish to complete this also.

Together we can make a difference!

Wording of Petition

Minister O'Connor,

The Post Study Work Visa will be unavailable to students who have applied for their first student visa before 5 November 2011.

On the other hand, the occupations list for the Graduate Work Stream will be much shorter from 1 January 2013.

As a result, many students will be unable to apply for either the PSWV or the Graduate Work Stream, simply because they have commenced studies prior to the cut off date.

Why should students who commenced studies earlier be punished, particularly if they have completed the course they have come to Australia to study?

We ask you to change the requirements for graduate work visas.

The PSWV should be open to all students, regardless of when they commenced their studies.

Yours Sincerely,
