Can I work outside of my trade? (before and after entering Oz)

Recommended Posts

Let's say I successfully finish the Vetassess process in my trade... While I wait for a visa invitation, how important is it that I stick to my trade in my daily work life? Can I work other occupations or would it hurt my chances doing unrelated work before I am invited to apply? I ask because I may have an opportunity to make more money outside of my usual trade but I am wondering if the Australian government will check before granting me a visa and if it will affect myself negatively. Once I get to Australia, I plan on doing the work in my trade. This is just a temporary issue.

I'm applying for the 189 / 190 / 489. Thanks!

There's no requirement to be currently working in your nominated occupation in order to get an invitation or a visa.

Will just add to the above, once you are in Australia you can do what ever you want.
