457 visa but now a citizen

Hi all,

I came to australia from canada on a 457 three years back.

I did not know that my father was an australian citizen (as he passed away a couple years after I was born), long story short, last week I got my citizenship by descent certificate from the DIBP.

I have checked vevo and it still says I am on a 457. Does this even matter? I don't have an Australian passport.

Am I now allowed to work for anyone? Can I get HECS if I want to go back to school?

put a change of circumstances form in and explain you circumstances well as I think they're quite unique! also upload your citizenship certificate. I think you qualify for hecs now too.
