COVID-19 results in changes to student visa work rights
The Government has made changes to the work restrictions of Student Visa Holders, in certain circumstances.
Australia’s major supermarkets will temporarily be able to offer more hours to international student employees to help keep shelves stocked.
International students currently employed at the major supermarkets will be able to extend their working hours to help meet high demand for essential items because of the coronavirus.
The measures are available to Woolworths and Coles at this stage and are only for existing employees in their existing roles.
Other supermarkets are able to register with the Department, if they believe the changes will assist them.
The Government has stated the changes are short term and will be reviewed regularly.
