Features

We have TSS visa consultants in Brisbane who can help discuss your particular requirements to identify what you’ll need to carry out your visa application effectively. The Temporary Skill Shortage Visa enables employers to sponsor a suitably skilled worker from overseas to fill a position they can’t find a suitably skilled Australian to fill. The Temporary Skill Shortage visa (subclass 482) is divided into three streams: short-term, medium-term, and the labour agreement stream. Each stream differs in the length of stay and is dependent on a varying range of requirements, yet all include bringing skilled migrants from abroad to work in Australia when skilled Australians are not suitable to fill the void in the job market.

Short-Term Stream

The short-term stream of the Temporary Skill Shortage Visa allows employers to address labour shortages and bring skilled workers from abroad in cases where they cannot source any appropriately skilled Australians for the job. If you’re unsure about your qualifications being a suitable fit for Australian employers, you’ll need to talk to one of E-Help TSS visa migration agents.
