Can spouse work with dependent visa

I hope to apply for PHD in austrailian university and my husband will be come to austrailia with me as a dependent visa holder. I have following questions.

1)My husband is an engineer and can he work in that profession in austrailia while he is with dependent visa. Some says he can work only 20 hours per week. Is there any restriction like that?

2) Can he apply for PR while under dependent visa under the category of skilled migrants

Which visa are you applying for? You can read on the DIBP website what entitlement any dependents will have.

Applying for a skilled visa while onshore on a student visa may be allowed, but you should check with a migration agent as I believe there are some situations where you can't apply onshore.

Hi,

To study for a PhD you will be applying for a Student Visa SC 574. You dependant Husband will also hold this visa. Both you and your husband can work full time on this visa once you have commenced you course.

Your husband can apply for a Permanent Residence Visa in Australia while holding a 574.

Regard
