FEATURES

The temporary work (skilled) (subclass 482) visa is an incredibly popular visa. Eligible businesses may sponsor a skilled worker in an occupation listed on the Skilled Occupation List (SOL) under this programme.

The purpose of the 482 visa is to fill shortages in the industry for specified occupations. The boundaries surrounding this visa aims to protect local labor. Here is our brief introduction to the 482 visa.

To be granted the temporary work 482 visas, 3 applications must be lodged and granted:

Think of the process as the SBS being a test of the viability of a business, the nomination as a test for if the position to be filled is one that actually is in need and the visa application as a test for if the nominee is eligible for the role.

TSS NOMINATION

There are three streams for employer nomination:

A)SHORT TERM STREAM

  • The nominated occupation must be on the Short-Term Skilled Occupations List (STSOL)
  • Applicants must show that they are Genuine Temporary Entrants
  • The visa is valid for either 1 or 2 years (unless an International Trade Obligation applies)
  • The visa can only be renewed onshore once
  • Provides limited pathways for employer sponsored permanent residence

B) MEDIUM TERM STREAM

  • The occupation must be on the Medium and Long Term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL)
  • A higher English language requirement applies compared to the short term stream
  • The visa can be valid for 1, 2, 3 or 4 years
  • The visa can be renewed without limitation and applicants may be eligible for permanent employer sponsored options

C) LABOUR AGREEMENT STREAM

This stream is for employers who have negotiated a labour agreement with the Australian Government.

CONDITIONS

Condition 8607 is mandatory for all primary visa applicants and is explained further below, including what you need to do if you would like to work for another sponsor and/or change your nominated occupation
Condition 8501 (Health Insurance) is a mandatory condition on all primary and secondary visas
Condition 8303 (no involvement in disruptive activities/violence) may be imposed on your TSS visa(s).

Condition 8607
This condition applies to all primary TSS visa holders. You must:

CHANGING EMPLOYER

If you have been already granted a TSS visa and you want to change your employer, you are not required to apply for a new visa. Before you start working for a new employer, however, you must be nominated by your proposed new employer (who must also be an approved business sponsor) and have that nomination approved first.

If you start working for your proposed new employer before the new nomination is approved, you will be in breach of visa condition 8607 and your TSS visa might be cancelled.

The approval of a new nomination only allows you to change your employer. It does not extend the length of your TSS visa, it does not allow you to work in a different occupation and does not change the conditions attached to your visa.
