Hi all. My wife is currently studying master degree by coursework and holds a VISA subclass 500. I hold a dependant visa with the same subclass 500 with my visa condition 8104. As quoted in the VEVO website on my VISA Detail Check (September 2019): 8104 - Work restriction: 40 hours a fortnight: You can only work up to 40 hours in a fortnight. A fortnight means the period of 14 days starting on a Monday. If you are a member of the family unit of a primary student visa holder, you must not work in Australia until they have started their course. Family members of students studying a masters or a doctorate degree can work unrestricted hours once the primary student visa holder has started their course. Note: This applies to family members of students who hold subclass 500 visa. Unrestricted work rights also applies to family members of subclass 573 (Higher Education Sector) and subclass 574 (Postgraduate Research Sector) visa holders studying a masters by research or doctorate degree. Can anybody please help me understand whether I can work unrestricted hours or not. I did not get any clear information also from the education agent that helped me applied my visa. Thank you.
Hi, I'm a bit confused and hope you can help me. I am currently studying in Australia at a college. I have Student Visa Subclass 500 (Sector: Vocational Education- VET). I have started on April 15 2019 and it hasn't yet been 6 months. My wife is my partner dependent, she has my same visa. We both have work limitation condition 8104. I am currently trying to switch from college to do masters degree. I am awaiting results from a university regarding my admission and I should receive a response within a week as education starts on 15th of July. According to my wifes current visa condition (condition 8104) she cannot work more than 40 hours per fortnight as I am studying at a college. According to that condition she can work unlimited hours if I study masters degree. I have talked to visa department but as always they were themselves confused and I couldn't get definitive answer. As I understand my further steps are as following. 1. Wait for the offer letter from university for masters degree. 2. Ask my current education provider (college) for a release letter so that they allow me to switch my course and provider. As It hasn't yet been 6 months since start of my studies, I need their permission. 3. Once both of my education providers agree and update my details I will need to send my new certificate of enrolment to visa department and update my details there. Now I have a few questions. As much as I understood, as I switch to higher level of education, I don't need to apply for a new visa. My question is will Sector field of my and my wifes current visa be changed from VET to Higher Education after I start studying at masters level ? If no, will my wife be able to work unlimited hours after I start my masters degree education ? Condition 8104 states that IF I study at a masters level or PHD my partner can work more than 40 hour per fortnight. It doesn't say "if your sector is VET she can not but if it's higher education she can". I would be extremely thankful if you guys could answer my 2 following questions: 1. will the sector part on my current visa change ? if it doesn't change, does it even matter what it says ? 2. If sector part of my visa doesn't change but I legitimately start studying at masters level, will my partner be able to work more than 40 hours per fortnight ? Thanks in advance guys.
Hello I applied for 457 in March 2018, our family is on bridging visa A now. Bridging Visa grant letter came with working rights (previous visa conditions). Since I (primary applicant) have finished course and my studies are therefore not in session, this working limitation doesn't apply to me anymore. What about my partner? Can she work more than 40 hours per fortnight? Immigration hotline couldn't provide me a certain answer. Thank you in advance
