After a couple of years of COVID 19 causing havoc all over the world, people are getting to adjust to the new reality of COVID-19. After the Australian government lost billions of dollars with international students unable to travel to Australia due to COVID-19, international students will soon start to travel to Australia. The Australian government has announced that from 15th December 2021, fully vaccinated international students can travel to Australia, without needing to apply for a travel exemption. International students who were already enrolled in Australian CRICOS education institutions and international students who are currently looking to move to Australia for better life and study can apply for Student Visa Subclass 500

As of 17th January 2022, Australia has approved the following vaccines for the purpose of travel to Australia:

Coronavac (Sinovac)

Covishield (AstraZeneca – Serum Institute of India)

BBIBP-CorV for people under 60 years of age on arrival in Australia (Sinopharm China)

Covaxin (Bharat Biotech)

Sputnik V (Gamaleya Research Institute)

With Australia looking to boost its economy, it is expected that international students will play a key part in the recovery of the Australian economy by injecting funds as well as filling the vacuum created by a shortage of workforce in many sectors of the economy in Australia. For this reason, as a temporary measure, the Australian government has announced to remove the cap of 40 hours a fortnight for many sectors struggling to find a competent workforce. 

This temporary removal of the 40 hours a fortnight cap for international students has created a good opportunity for them to earn good money while studying a world-recognized degree in Australia. This measure is an exceptional opportunity for students from the subcontinent (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, and Sri Lanka), Africa, and Latin America where the Australian Dollar is quite expensive in relation to their local currency.

This means that they can recover most of their education cost while studying, thus reducing the burden on families.

For international students who want to study in Australia, they need to apply for a Student Visa Subclass 500. If you are married and have dependents, don’t worry. Australia grants Student Visas Subclass 500 to the primary applicants as well as spouses and dependents as secondary applicants. The conditions which are applied on a primary applicant Student Visa are the ones applied on secondary applicants as well. Although, secondary applicants such as school-aged children who are dependents of the primary applicant need to get admission to the school while in Australia.

With the temporary removal of the 40 hours a fortnight cap, secondary applicants such as spouses of international students will be able to work full-time hours in the industries authorized by the Australian government. This has created an exceptional opportunity for international students. In fact, this is the best time for international students to study in Australia to recoup the cost of their education.
