There are various visa restrictions which could be imposed on certain visas. It all depends on what kind of visa is granted. Whether it is a visitor visa, work visa, student visa or other.

Visa restrictions are known also as visa conditions. The easiest way to know and understand your visa restrictions is to check them, on your visa grant. If you don’t have a visa grant handy you may check your visa through VEVO system on a Home Affairs webpage.

Most common visa restrictions Australia

While permanent visas usually have no restrictions there are a few which could be added to temporary visas. Most common visa restrictions relate to work and the duration of a visit.

Student visa holders can usually work part-time while on the session and full-time off-session, TSS visa holders can work only for the sponsor, and a visitor visa holder can’t work at all.

It is very important to remember the expiry date of the visa and leave the country or apply for another visa to avoid becoming unlawful non-citizen. Non-Australians without a visa may be detained and removed from Australia if caught by Federal Police.
