The rights of the international students who are working for the aged care centres have been extended by the government. They can continue to deliver their service and help ease the pressure over the workforce in these centres. On Monday, the federal government extended the working hours to more than 40 hrs for the international students but only for the aged care centres.

Greg Hunt, the Health Minister, said that this extension would ensure that the aged care centres have an extra workforce for a longer time. Due to the vaccinations programmes, there is a lot of pressure on the workers and staff. This permission will help to higher the intensity of work done and lower the pressure all over.

“The students who are visa holders and working with the aged care must have the flexibility to take on the extra load. This will increase the capacity of the other staff to stand against the pandemic,” said Immigration Minister Alex Hawke.

The students working with the aged care centres must have at least one vaccination done to be working in their job from 17th September. The international students enrolled in nursing can also take part in the Australian health response to COVID-19.
