FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Student Guardian Visa holders are not allowed to work in Australia. That’s why Australia expects these visa holders to prove that they have enough money for the duration of their stay to cover costs and expenses. 

Unfortunately, only one parent at a time can hold a Student Guardian Visa.
