Only Australian citizens, permanent residents, and certain New Zealand citizens have unrestricted rights to employment in Australia. All other people in Australia need a visa that enables them to be in and work in Australia lawfully.
Not all visa holders in Australia have the right to work. Some visas have no work rights, such as visitor visas. Others have work rights subject to limitations, such as working holiday visas or student visas.
