COVID-19 Response: International Students to be allowed to work Additional Hours

The Department of Home Affairs announced on Friday 13th of March 2020 Australia’s major supermarkets will temporarily be able to offer more hours to international student employees to help keep shelves stocked.


“Supermarkets across the country are struggling to keep shelves stocked with essential items, such as toilet paper, tissues, rice and pasta,”

Mr Tudge said.



“To keep up with this demand, supermarkets have told us they need to give extra hours to current staff to stock shelves and serve Australian customers. While many of these will be Australian workers, international students will also be able to increase their hours,”

Mr Tudge said.


International students currently employed at the major supermarkets will be able to extend their working hours to help meet high demand for essential items because of the coronavirus.
