Visa News

From July 1, 2023, work restrictions for student visa holders will be re-introduced however international students will now be allowed to work for 48 hours a fortnight which is an 8-hour increase in work hours that were previously capped at 40 hours a fortnight. Important to note that work hours restrictions for student visa holders in Australia were relaxed throughout the pandemic, and completely removed in January 2022 to allow student visa holders and their dependant family members to work over their normal limit of 40 hours per fortnight to address workforce shortages. This arrangement is to end on 30 June 2023.
