COVID-19 Update #10
BE INFORMED. AVOID FALSE RUMORS.
For student visa holders, arrangements have been made to relax the 40 hours per fortnight work restrictions in specific sectors.
These are the following industry sectors towards the arrangements of Student Visa – Relaxation Work Restrictions:
• Supermarkets may work longer hours if their employing supermarket has gained approval from the Department.
– Approval may be obtained using this form (https://svcr.homeaffairs.gov.au/) by the EMPLOYERS on the Department’s website.
• Aged care facilities may also be granted approval to employ student visa holders in excess of the usual work restrictions.
• Aged care providers registered with the Department of Health are not required to register with the Department of Home Affairs to access this measure.
A letter outlining access to this measure will be sent to all registered aged care providers by the Department of Health and/or concerned Government Departments
This is unprecedented difficult time for everyone due to COVID-19, but remember “we are all in this together”. Please stay safe, let’s pray together and think about others.
