Subclass 485 Visa Changes
From 1 July 2023, Post-Study Work stream applicants with a select degree in an area of verified skills shortage may be eligible for an extended 2 years on their visa.
Under the Temporary Graduate visa (subclass 485) Post-Study Work Stream, the visa validity for eligible graduates of listed qualifications and courses will increase, as follows:
Four years for Bachelor's degree graduates, up from two years previously.
Five years for Master's degree graduates, up from three years previously.
Six years for doctoral graduates, up from four years previously.
This provides eligible graduates with an opportunity to gain valuable employment experience in Australia.
