Unrestricted Work Rights For Student Visa Holders Extended Until 30 June 2023

To address workforce shortages, student visa work hours restrictions have been temporarily relaxed. This will end on 30 June 2023.

Until 30 June 2023, all ongoing students as well as new student arrivals and secondary applicants are able to work more than 40 hours a fortnight in any sector of the economy and work before their​ course of study commences.

​After 30 June 2023, the number of hours a Student visa holder will be allowed to work will again be capped. The number of hours a Student visa holder works ensures that Students focus on obtaining a quality Australian education and qualification.

Students must make sure they are aware of any changes to visa conditions, including workers' rights.

Information for students

You must continue to balance your study and work commitments even though there is flexibility in the number of hours you can work.

Students must still:

• maintain their course enrolment • ensure satisfactory course attendance, and • ensure satisfactory course progress.

Student visa holders who cancel their enrolment and stop attending classes, or fail to meet satisfactory course progress, may be in breach of their visa conditions. ​
