Depending on the circumstances around holders of a Partnership-based work visa, the following conditions may apply (effective from 11 August 2023):
- For Partnership-based work visa holders who have applied for another partnership-based work visa, an Interim Visa will allow them to work for any employer. They will not have restrictions such as being required to work for an accredited employer or earn a specific wage.
- For people holding a different visa type who have applied for a partnership-based work visa, an Interim Visa will not allow them to work. Their Interim Visa will have the same conditions as a Visitor Visa.
