this is correct. i have same case like you. the local fee only eligible to citizen or PR and New Zealander . Once you still hold temporary visa (820) . you need to pay international fee.Hi Skybluebrewer, Yes, I agree and understand but when they don't respond on email either, it's really frustrating. I specifically wanted to ask about studying on an 820 visa. I thought my husband was able to pay local fees, rather than international fees. Each institution is saying something different and both TAFE and 2 Universities have stated that I need to get guidance from the DOI in order to know the answer. There are a few other things, but this is a major one atm.
I'm also confused again when he will be eligible to pass for the 801 and how much longer we (generally) need to wait.
