Work Restrictions for student Visa Holders

Share This Post

From 1 July 2023, work rights for international students will be capped again, but at a higher level of 48 hours per fortnight.

Attention all international students in Australia! The Government has announced that the cap on working hours will be reinstated on 1 July 2023, and will be raised to 48  hours per fortnight. This change will help you support yourself financially while studying, while still keeping your studies as the primary purpose of your visa. And, this cap will apply to ALL international students, regardless of when you started your studies.
If you’re wondering why the Government is reinstating the cap, it’s because the relaxation of the cap was only a temporary measure during the pandemic to help meet labour shortages. Remember, the primary purpose of your visa is to study in Australia.
If your employer is threatening to cancel your visa for working too many hours, don’t worry. Your employer cannot cancel your visa, and reporting workplace exploitation to the Fair Work Ombudsman will not result in visa cancellation by the Department of Home Affairs, even if you have worked more than the allowed number of hours in a fortnight. Stay safe and know your rights!
