Super annuation early release WH 462

Newbie

Hello! I was wondering if I am eligible for the early release of the superannuation. I was working in Australia until the 3rd of February, my visa (WH 462) finished the 18th of February, I apply for another year of visa and it has been granted. Because of the COVID situation I wasn't able to go back to Australia and I'm struggling with money. So my question is, even if I'm abroad and I have a granted visa for another year, can I apply for the early release of my superannuation?
Thanks!
