Temporary Skill Shortage visa TSS (Subclass 482) Visa

A Temporary Skill Shortage visa permits firms to sponsor foreign employees to fill nominated skilled positions for a limited period.

As part of the visa application procedure, 482 visa applicants must have an employer willing to sponsor them. Before a prospective employee can apply for a 482 visa, the employer must complete specified sponsorship and nomination requirements.

Subclass 482 Procedures

The following streams determine years of visa grant and pathway, which must be carefully considered before applying for a visa.

  • Short-Term Stream: This type of stream is open if the employer wants to employ you for a TSS visa temporarily exclusively in occupations specified on the Short-term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL). It can be used to fill positions for up to two years or four years if an International Trade Obligation (ITO) is in place.
  • Medium-Term Stream: If the business wants to employ you (as an overseas skilled worker) for up to 4¬†years, the skill should be in the occupations list of the Medium and Long-Term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL) or the Regional Occupation List (ROL) for a TSS visa, this stream is accessible.
  • Labor Agreement Stream: If your company intends to sponsor you (as an overseas worker) and has engaged in a labor agreement with the Department, this stream is accessible.
