Job adverts which say Only people with Australia/NZ non-restricted visa should apply.
What does the following mean when included in a job advertisement;
Only people with Australia/NZ non-restricted visa should apply.
I have noticed it on quite a few ads. We are on a 475 visa and we are not sure if this means we can't apply for these jobs?
Thanks in advance
usually means PR visa, or citizen ship, too many applications to get through
It means VISAs that state you cannot work on ie a holiday VISA, but to be honest alot of companies possibly will not look at some people unless thay have PR....but as long as your VISA does NOT state that you CANNOT work then apply to your hearts content.
Just develop a very thick skin over here as they are very crap at answering any job applications here !!!!!!

Reason: more info
Ok... now I'm more confused... 2 different replies
I thought employers couldn't specify 475's couldn't apply for jobs as they were on a pathway to PR.
Any 475 visa holders who can clarify?
475s CAN apply for work over here as their VISA states they can work over here, only government jobs can specify PR or Citizenship for any vacancies....if you had to have PR or citizenship then no-one would bother to come here ad they would be unemployable .
they don't specify anything........... this is what leaves them open to their own disgression.
They generalise that you must be able to work.
Unfortunalty it's true, on a 475 some employers won't take you in, the same as happened to us, myself and my husband.

So I am afraid that it's true, we are a bit disapointed as we never thought this would happen to us, we thought it was only with government and defense positions!
Does anyone know how to go about putting our case forward to Immigration SA?

And this is stated on your VISA just check it and it should say summat along the lines of you are permitted to work....
If in doubt contact DIAC but check your VISA....
Defence you generally have to be a citizen.
Checking DIAC , does not mean you will be offered a job. You can have all the skills in the world, but in the present climate, if your outside the box, then you will find it hard.
in my case I am allowed to work and they are already employing me but as a temp, but they dont employ anybody without permanent residency
i have checked this with HR and this is the case ... so i am looking again for jobs
if you guys see something of interest pls let me know or post it here and i will do the same if i see any companies that have lots of jobs
