Legislative Instrument IMMI 14/007 [F2014L00146] commencing 22 March 2014, modifies the details of education providers participating in streamlined visa processing arrangements, including universities and their educational business partners, for subclass 573 Higher Education Sector and 574 Postgraduate Research Sector Student visas, and to specify eligible education providers for subclass 575 Non-Award Sector Student visas. The Instrument also extends streamlined visa processing by specifying non-university education providers as eligible education providers and their educational business partners.

The Instrument includes the addition of eligible education providers, the addition of educational business partners, removal of some educational business partners and updating the details of some eligible education providers and educational business partners already specified. 

As numerous changes have been made to the approval lists, RMAs should check details of providers and agents they may have used previously. This Instrument revokes IMMI 13/024.
