Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)


Who are eligible to work in Australia?

You can gain employment if you are:
  • an Australian citizen: a birth certificate, citizenship certificate or current passport is proof of eligibility
  • a permanent resident of Australia or New Zealand citizen who has entered Australia on a valid passport: you are allowed to stay and work in Australia without restriction
  • a non-citizen with a valid visa that provides work rights: a current passport containing the visa is a proof of eligibility. As the visa has an expiry date, non-citizens can only engange in casual, temporary or fixed term roles that do not extend beyond the expiry date. Visitors on a Working Holiday visa are permitted to work in temporary or casual roles, but for no longer that six months with any one employer.
