While student visa is the most popular visa through which the Bhutanese come to Australia, there are also other visa types one can apply. There is a very comprehensive webpage called Visa Wizard at http://www.border.gov.au/Trav/Visa-1 on Australia immigration website where you can check which visa you can apply for.Major documents required for student visa application:
A document issued by the education institute stating that you have been successfully enrolled in the institute.
Most higher educational courses require a certain pass mark in IELTS, but the requirement differs from course to course and on institute as well. So it is important to check the English language requirements for the course you are applying for.
It is mandatory to have health check up to apply for any visa to Australia.
Attested copies of your academic transcripts.
Different visas requires you to show certain amount of money in your bank account.

We have seen cases where some Bhutanese arrived in Perth without any knowledge of the existence of Bhutanese community here and they had to put up in hotels paying huge rents. So it is always good idea to ask around who is already here, and seek help especially to arrange airport pick up and temporary accommodation. We encourage you to first approach your friends and family who are already here.
