Of late the Australian Government has made several changes in immigration rules. It may be difficult for employers as well as the applicants to understand the TSS 482 Visa. Here are the things you need to know about the visa.
The visa subclass 482 is a work visa which was introduced by the Australian Government on 19 March 2019, as a replacement of the 457 visas. This visa allows employers to sponsor skilled workers from overseas in positions where appropriately skilled Australians are not available for work opportunities in their organization. That means a business is allowed to sponsor someone only when they are not able to find a permanent resident or an Australian citizen for doing skilled work.
As per the conditions of the TSS visa, the organization has to be either a Standard Business Sponsor (SBS) or an Overseas Business Sponsor(OBS). The TSS 482 Visa helps to address labor shortages. It can be a pathway to permanent residency.
This particular visa has three streams
• The Medium-Term stream
• The Short-Term stream
• The Labor Agreement stream
You need to choose a particular stream as per the Consolidated Skilled Occupations List that is applicable to you. For instance, if the occupation you are eligible for belongs to the short-term category, then your TSS visa will be valid for a maximum period of 2 years. However, it can be renewed from onshore for another 2 years and from offshore for an additional two years. If you meet the Genuine Temporary Entrant requirements and if your occupation belongs to the Medium and Long-Term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL) or the Regional Occupation List (ROL), then you are eligible for applying the visa for 4 years. Thereafter, you will be eligible for getting a permanent residency after three years provided you meet the age, health, character, and English language requirements.
The labor agreement stream addresses those skill shortages which are not enlisted in CSOL. The employer needs to sign an agreement with the Australian to sponsor an employee in this particular stream.
The Temporary Skill Shortage Visa Subclass 482 allows the holder to work fulltime for the sponsoring company in an occupation temporarily. Dependent family members of the applicant can also be included in the visa application and they can travel to and from Australia till the visa is valid and are permitted to work or study in Australia without limitation.
The Temporary 482 Visa application is a three-step process.
