Which condition are you concerned about? And what do you mean by “ VEVO no good”?

Work for husband as postgraduate he should have full work rights. Also as postgraduate visa should be 6 months longer. Nowhere on Vevo to ask questions

VEVO is not for asking questions, it is for checking visa status and visa conditions.Are the visa conditions on VEVO the same as in the grant letter? Doest the grant letter state that there is a work restriction ? Maybe you can post all the conditions here ?

Alternatively email me the grant letter, so I can have a look. I can then send you some contact details privately, which I will not publish here.

Thanks Nick

My visa issue is I have been granted it for an extra two months after I finish the course. Visa conditions on vevo are same as grant letter. Grant letter says there is a work restriction on both of us. The immi website says postgraduate students are granted an additional six months past the maximum period. This is on top of the two months.
Issue with husband - length of stay as above. Condition 8104 work limitation not permitted to work more than 40 hours per fortnight. Website says that if student visa holder is doing a postgraduate there is no limit on the number of hours worked.

I will be doing a masters by coursework. I am happy to get the visa as is but if I could maximise time and work rights that would be good. I was going by what it says on the website but maybe I have misinterpreted in some way. Happy to send you grant letter if you pm me your email.

To have unrestricted work rights, the post grad course must be by research, not coursework, otherwise work restrictions apply to the student and to family members.

I believe it is the other way around, Wesley ? Or am I misinterpreting this ?

Under condition 8104, family members of students who have commenced a masters by research or coursework, or a doctorate degree are permitted to work unrestricted hours.

To the OP:

Your best bet to raise this is to lodge a complaint or inquiry via the GFU (https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/about...ovide-feedback) and they will direct it to the appropriate Department.

My contact details are in my signature.

Condition 8105 work limitation is mandatory for primary visa holders.

Condition 8105 restricts students to 40 hours work per fortnight while their course is in session. They are not permitted to work until their course has commenced.
When their course is not in session they may work unlimited hours.
Students who have commenced a masters by research or a doctorate course may work unlimited hours after commencing their postgraduate research course.
Condition 8105 - working between course sessions
Condition 8105 states that holders are also not permitted to work more than 40 hours a fortnight while their course of study or training in which they are enrolled is ‘in session’, with the exception of those who have commenced a masters degree by research or doctoral degree.
However, this work limitation does not include work that is a registered component of the student’s course of study or training for the award to be obtained.

Mandatory 8104 applies to dependants is as you described it. I might have misunderstood the OP's query.

Thanks so much for the replies
I am not querying my work restriction I know I can only work 40 hours a fortnight and don't think I could manage more with study. It is my husband's rights I am querying and my read was that he should be unlimited as per your quote. Is a complaint the way to go don't want to annoy them the other issue is length of visa.

Don't worry about annoying them; it's their job. Under GFU you can tick "inquiry" instead of "complaint". They tend to be very helpful.
