The form is to be used by students for one of two purposes:
They are applying for a new student visa because they are unable to complete their studies within the validity of their original visa and they are seeking a fee waiver on the visa application charge.
They are applying for a post-study visa and are seeking to have their online studies offshore resulting from covid-19 travel restrictions count towards the Australian Study
The form cannot be filled by the students themselves, but rather must be completed and signed by the institution in support of a covid-19 impacted student.
If you are affected by COVID-19 direct all Form 1545 related queries to your institution.
