Work limitation for a Subclass 500

There are conditions on a student visa indicating that you must not engage in any work before your course commences. You are also not permitted to work more than 40 hours per fortnight when you are in Australia and when your course in session.

There is no limitation on holidays and for master or PhD courses.

With our experience, part – time job may not only help you enjoy the Australian working environment, it also helps you to study multicultural in Australia.

Australia is a developed country, which has a commercialization and modernization in the hospitality industry. Let be sure that you will engage in a labour contract with your employer. You will be paid fortnightly on credit, and it properly will be enough for your spending. You will be working in a rightful, legal environment with many protections for employees by the Government.

In contrast, there are some places that will just pay you in cash instead. It is very dangerous for yourself as you do not have any contract with the employer, so none of Australian Departments can ensure your well – being or safety at work. Furthermore, if you are found out that you are working over the work limitation, you may have your visa cancelled and be sent back to your own country within 28 days.

Think carefully before you do anything to avoid being deported from Australia!
