Temporary Skilled Shortage (TSS) Visa (482)

A 3 stage process for individuals sponsored by an employer/business. This three stage process can lead to permanent residency.

Stage 1

The employer/business applies to become eligible sponsors.

Stage 2

Once the employer/business becomes an approved sponsor, then it is in a position to nominate an applicant to sponsor.

Stage 3

Once the prospective applicant is nominated by the employer/business and all criteria have been met, the applicant lodge a valid application.

This visa, referred to as the TSS visa, enables employers to address labour shortages by bringing in genuinely skilled workers where they cannot source an appropriately skilled Australian. It facilitates targeted use of overseas workers to address temporary skill shortages, while ensuring that Australian workers get priority. TSS visa holders can work in Australia in their nominated occupation for their approved sponsor under one of three streams:

  • the Short-Term stream
  • the Medium-Term stream
  • the Labour Agreement stream.

Length of stay – One to four years – depending on your nominated occupation, the visa stream and your circumstances

AUSTRALIAN SKILLED VISA APPLICATION

Firstly, you will need to complete a skills assessment, so that the Department of Immigration is able to assess whether you have the skills necessary to perform in your chosen occupation within Australia. If you’re successful with your skill assessment, you can submit an Expression of Interest. Once this has been completed, you will receive an invitation to apply for an Australian Skilled Work Visa.
