What is a Subclass 482 – Temporary Skill Shortage visa?
- This visa allows suitably skilled foreign residents to be nominated to work for an Australian-based company for 2 – 4 years.
- This is a temporary residency visa designed to address skill shortages in the Australian workforce.
- You may apply for this visa once a company has an approved sponsorship and successfully nominates you for the position.
Note: This visa requires the cooperation of a nominating entity. This entity will also have to pay a Skilling Australians Fund levy in order to nominate you. We are able to assist with sponsorship and nomination requirements.
- You must be suitably skilled in an occupation listed on either the Short Term Skills List, the Medium and Long Term Strategic Skills List or the Regional Occupation List.
- An entity is willing to become an approved sponsor and lodge a nomination application.
- You must hold a positive Skills Assessment.
- You meet English language requirements.
- You meet health and character requirements.
- You have two years work experience in the nominated role.
- This is generally a three-stage process:
- The entity must be an approved sponsor or make an application to be an approved sponsor;
- The entity must nominate you and demonstrate there is a genuine need for this position in their company; and
- You must be approved as an applicant, a suitably skilled foreigner.
- You may be onshore or offshore when this application is made.
- You may be onshore or offshore at the time of the Department’s decision.
- You must work in the nominated role for the nominated employer for the period of your visa.
- You may bring your dependants and/or partner to Australia on your visa, or as a subsequent entrant.
