Australian Government Gives Clarification to Temporary Visa Holders
On 4 Apr 2020, the Australian government declared temporary immigration reforms for temporary visa holders. The below are the clarifications given a result of vague and inadequate information provided by the government of Australia and several media releases, produced by Australian Immigration experts.

Temporary visa holders are 'remarkably important to the economy of Australia and way of life' as said by the Acting Minister of Immigration. The Immigration Department proceeds to accept, process and award visa applications including visas of employer-sponsored. The Department has not decided to terminate or deport any visa holder as an outcome of the COVID-19 crisis. There are no modifications to visa conditions. Aspirants currently offshore will be able to move to Australia as soon as travel constraints are lifted unless exclusion applies for health care workers and members of the family of Australian citizens and Australian permanent residents.

Holders of Temporary Work Visa can manage rights to reside in Australia if the holder: 

  • Remains to work as normal
  • Has hours lowered temporarily
  • Shifts their visa to a separate employer
  • Has been held down temporarily and will be employed again
  • Appeals for a separate visa, for example, PR visa ENS186 or other visa choices if qualified
  • Appeals for a visa renewal
  • For visa holders who need further financial support, their Superannuation funds of Australia can be reached

Global Students in Australia

Global Students are a significant contributor to the Australian tertiary sector and economy, helping for 240,000 jobs in Australia. Students who want to live in Australia can do so if they can depend on part-time work where it is available, family assistance and their own savings. Global Students are also urged to explore new job openings in areas of necessity. For additional financial support, Superannuation funds of Australia can be accessed. Besides, educational institutions are contributing financial assistance to students such as plans of payment and discounts to fees of the courses. The Immigration Department will be kind to those who cannot attend classes throughout this period.

Students who work in significant sectors like health care will be allowed to work higher than 40 hours per fortnight. 

Visitor Visa Holders

Holders of Visitor visa can live in Australia for as long as their visa grants and as long as they can maintain themselves financially. It is probable to renew their visitor visas relying on each situation. Limitations like the 8503, no further stay requirement can be ignored. Those who are eligible for other visa alternatives may be possible including employer sponsorship and skilled visas.
