This chapter contains details about visa conditions. A visa condition is a requirement, imposed by the Migration Regulations, with which the visa-holder must comply. A condition may be mandatory (i.e. the Migration Regulations provide that the condition MUST be imposed) or discretionary (the Migration Regulations provide that it MAY be imposed, and a decision maker decides in a particular case to impose it). Breach of a visa condition means that the visa may be cancelled under Migration Act section 116(1)(b). The most common conditions imposed on visas are a prohibition or restriction on work or study.
