Working Holiday Maker Work Rights Relaxation Extended

ck migration

The Department has announced that they have extended the relaxation of condition 8547 until 30 June 2023.

This allows Working Holiday Makers to work with any one employer for the duration of their visa without requesting permission. Furthermore, any work that is carried out before 1 July 2023 will not be counted towards the 6-month limitation period. This translates that from 1 July 2023 onwards, Working Holiday Makers may work for any employer for up to an additional 6 months even if they worked for that same employer before 1 July 2023.

This applies to anyone in Australia who either holds any kind of WHM visa, regardless of when they arrive, or holds a Bridging visa with condition 8547 imposed.
