About Student Guardian Visa (subclass 580)

The Student Guardian (Subclass 580) visa allows parents and other legal guardians of international students to enter Australia with them in order to provide accommodation, welfare, and financial support to them while they study.

Student Guardian (Subclass 580) visa holders must usually be accompanying a student who is less than 18 years old, except in exceptional circumstances; such as if the student has physical or mental health needs or disabilities which mean they need a guardian in Australia. They can stay in Australia for the full length of the student visa holder’s stay which they accompany, or until the student reaches 18 years of age (whichever comes sooner).

Student Guardian (Subclass 580) visa holders cannot work in Australia without a separate work permit, but may study an English Language Intensive Course for Overseas Students (ELICOS) for up to 20 hours per week, OR;
A non-ELICOS course for 3 months or less
