Temporary relaxation of working hours for student visa holders

Temporary relaxation of working hours for student visa holders

​​​Due to exceptional circumstances during the COVID-19 pandemic and the need to ensure the supply of critical services, the Department of Home Affairs and Australian Border Force will take a flexible approach to student visa holders working beyond their usual work limitations, but only in specified industries.

You can work for ​more than 40 hours a fortnight if you are:

-employed by an aged care Approved Provider or Commonwealth-funded aged care service provider with a RACS ID or a NAPS ID, before 8 September 20​20
-employed by a registered National Disability Insurance Scheme provider
-enrolled in a health care related course and you are supporting the health effort against COVID-19, as directed by health officials
-employed in the agriculture sector.

    Hi. I am currently studying Diploma of Community Service, got a temporary job offer through a job agency to work at Department of Health supporting the administration duties related to COVID-19 cases. Am I eligible to work more than 40 hours per fortnight?

    Thank for your response.
