Work Visa

Work Visa

  • The Subclass 482 Temporary Skills Shortage Visa (also known as the TSS visa) has replaced the old 457 visa which was abolished in 2018.
  • The 482 Temporary Skill Shortage Visa is temporary and it allows you to accept a job offer from an Australian employer and work for them. You get full-time work rights but you can only work for the sponsoring employer, in the approved nominated occupation, unless another employer takes over your sponsorship.
  • The TSS visa is designed to help employers fill the labour shortages in Australia with qualified workers from abroad in the event when a suitable local applicant cannot be sourced to fulfil a role.
  • There are three streams that applicants can apply for under the new TSS visa: TheShort-Term stream, the Medium-Term stream and the Labour Agreement Stream.
  • Employers must nominate their preferred applicants through one of these streams
