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.

Temporary Skill Shortage Visa (482) Short-term Stream Requirements

To be eligible for the 482 visa short-term stream, you must:

  • Be nominated to work in an occupation on the list of the eligible short-term skilled occupations
  • Have at least two years of relevant work experience in your nominated occupational field
  • Have a relevant skills assessment for your occupation
  • Work only for your sponsor, unless exempt
  • Meet minimum standards of English language proficiency

With the Temporary Skill Shortage Visa (subclass 482) on the short-term stream, you are able to travel to and from Australia as many times as you want while your visa is valid, and if eligible you can apply for permanent residency.

When you have been successfully accepted into the Temporary Skill Shortage Visa (subclass 482) short-term stream, you will be able to work in Australia for up to two years for your sponsor.
