emporary Skill Shortage (TSS) Visa Australia banner

he subclass 482 visa, also known as the Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) visa, is a temporary work visa that allows skilled workers to live and work in Australia for up to 4 years. The visa is designed to help employers fill skilled job vacancies that they cannot fill with Australian workers.

There are three streams of the subclass 482 visa:

  • Short-term stream: This stream allows you to stay in Australia for up to 2 years or up to 4 years if an International Trade Obligation (ITO) applies. Hong Kong passport holders may stay up to 5 years.
  • Medium-term stream: This stream allows you to stay in Australia for up to 4 years or up to 5 years if you are a Hong Kong passport holder.
  • Labour agreement stream: This stream is for skilled workers nominated by employers who have a Labour Agreement with the Australian government. The length of stay on this stream depends on the terms of the labour agreement.

To be eligible for a subclass 482 visa, you must:

  • Be a skilled worker in an occupation on the eligible occupation lists
  • Have a valid job offer from an Australian employer who is willing to sponsor you for the visa
  • Meet the English language requirements
  • Have a health insurance policy that meets the requirements of the Department of Home Affairs
  • Pay the visa application fee

The processing time for a subclass 482 visa can vary, but it typically takes between 3 and 6 months. The success rate of the visa is high, with over 90% of applications being approved.

If you are a skilled worker who is interested in working in Australia, the subclass 482 visa is a great option. It allows you to live and work in Australia for a significant period of time, and it can also be a pathway to permanent residency.

  • You must have a valid passport from a visa-eligible country.
  • You must have a clean criminal record.
  • You must be able to support yourself financially while you are in Australia.
