An immigration consultancy based in India and Australia reports that the recent spate of attacks on Indian students studying in Australia has had no impact on the number of people from India applying for an Australian visa.

Naresh Gulati, the CEO of Oceanic Consultants, which helps Indian students secure Australia visas, says it has seen no fall in applications from Punjabi students. Gulati says:

“Australia is the most conducive, friendly and non-racist place that really encourages students to settle there. My whole family is living there and we have not faced any kind of racial attack or discrimination so far.”

Another Indian migration consultancy, GlobalVisas.co.in, are also reported as saying that the attacks have had very little impact on visa applications.
