SBS News can reveal student visa holders employed in hospitality and tourism will have restrictions on their working hours lifted under a new measure to be included in next week's federal budget.

Highlights

  • International students will have a cap imposed on their working hours lifted if they are employed in hospitality and tourism, marking a significant change for many who rely on these jobs.
  • Immigration Minister Alex Hawke says the move will help fill staffing gaps in these sectors and support Australia's economic recovery. 
  • Temporary visa holders working in or intending to work in tourism and hospitality will also be able to apply for the 408 COVID-19 Visa up to 90 days before their existing visa expires.
