I'm a Russian citizen living in the US in F1 status. My F1 visa expires in December 2019. First of all, is it possible to apply for an Australian visa with my status? I haven't found any explicit reference to it in the official FAQ (of the Australian embassy in the US). Secondly, assuming it is possible to obtain a visa for me, if I go to Australia in August for a couple of weeks, are there any requirements on how long my US F1 visa should be valid upon returning to the US? I wasn't able to find such information in any official sources either. (E.g. if you apply for a EU visa with F1 status, then there are such kind of requirements.)

  • I've never heard of Australia having any such requirement. They are much more concerned with visitors' health and criminal records. Feb 8 '19 at 18:16
  • It is possible to apply for a visa with your status. There are no requirements on how long your US visa should be valid; you are fine as long as it will not expire by the time you enter the US. Source: personal experience.
