Looking at hiring international talent?
Here's some information on hiring international students.
International students studying in Australia are allowed to work a maximum of 40 hours per fortnight during the semester, but are not so limited during holidays. International students are also not automatically granted the right to work in Australia, and need to apply before being eligible.
Verifying their ability to work
Before hiring an international student for paid work, you'll need to ensure that their visa status allows it. Immi.gov's page on employing legal workers has this to say:
The preferred method of checking visa details is to register for our free, online system Visa Entitlement Verification Online (VEVO). Alternatively, employers can ask their worker to send their visa details directly to them using VEVO Email.
Did you know that there's a visa specifically designed for international students who've recently graduated their studies in Australia?
