If you have entered Australia on a visa, then you need to check whether your visa gives you permission to work. Some visas have what is called a ‘no work’ condition meaning you cannot work at all while you are on that visa, or a ‘work limitation’ condition meaning you are limited in the work you are allowed to do. The work rights you have on your visa can be found on your visa grant notice or by a VEVO check. If you haven’t started working yet and you are unsure if you have work rights, you can contact the Department of Home Affairs for help about your visa conditions. You can call them on 131 881 or visit their website here: https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/ You can also get help from a migration lawyer or a migration agent. Be aware that you may need to pay for this help.
