This is verified by the advice of acceptance from the Institution (commonly known as Letter of Offer), which is issued to a student who has been offered enrolment in a full-time course. You should not pay any part of the course/tuition fee prior to the outcome of the PVA.
Sponsor/s will have to provide documentary evidence of having cash assets (immediately encashable assets like savings and fixed deposits in banks) held for at least 6 months prior to the pre-visa application date.
All students have to demonstrate a minimum level of proficiency, measured by an IELTS overall band score of at least 6.0, except those enrolling for a Diploma course (VET) in which case 5.5 is acceptable.

If you are advised that you meet the PVA requirements, you will be asked to undergo further processing. This includes payment of course/tuition fee to the Australian educational institution and a medical examination. It is essential that the student and the accompanying dependent(s) meet the Australian Health requirements before a visa may be granted. This involves a medical check and an x-ray for applicants over 16.
Applicants will need to present an original valid passport to identify themselves to the Doctor and Radiologist. In some cases medical results will be referred to Australia and as this process takes 3 - 4 weeks, applicants will need to allow additional time. Usually only medicals where the doctor or radiologist has detected an abnormality will be referred to Australia. Applicants need to take into account postage or courier times also.
As a general rule, applicants should allow a four (4) to six (6) weeks timeframe for processing of applications.
Factors that may delay this processing time include:
1. Medical referral to Australia and the need for any subsequent medical tests;
2. Document verification including educational documents, employment references and bank statements; and
3. Applications which are incomplete and require the visa office to make contact with the applicant or the applicant's agent.
