Work restrictions for student visa holders

From 1 July 2023, work restrictions for student visa holders will be re-introduced.

Student visa work restrictions were relaxed throughout the pandemic, and completely removed in January 2022 to allow primary and secondary student visa holders to work over their normal limit of 40 hours per fortnight to address workforce shortages. This will end on 30 June 2023. 

From 1 July 2023, work restrictions for student visa holders will be re-introduced and increased to 48 hours per fortnight.


What does this mean for HR Managers and employers ?

You need to ensure that employment contracts/ payroll reflect the new hours going forward for any student visa holders.


How do you know if your employee holds a student visa ?

A student visa is subclass 500 so look out for this number on their visa or VEVO verification.
