Work Holiday Pass holders are allowed to work and are not restricted to only specific types of work. However, existing licensing, registration or accreditation requirements (e.g. medicine or law) will apply. Since this is a short work stint, there would not be any minimum salary requirement.
Foreign students who do not meet the above criteria can consider applying for the Training Employment Pass.
