Experienced 482 Visa Migration Agents in Australia

Subclass 482 Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) enables employers to address labour shortages by bringing genuinely skilled workers where they cannot source an appropriately skilled Australian worker. This visa lets a skilled worker to travel to Australia to work in their nominated occupation for their approved sponsor for up to four years.


Applying for a TSS visa involves three steps that can be undertaken simultaneously.


1. Standard business sponsorship


A sponsorship facility is granted for five years with unlimited sponsorship places.  


2. Nomination


The nomination is the process of identifying a position to be filled by the nominee. For the nomination to be approved, the business must demonstrate the following:


  • the position must align with an occupation on the relevant occupation list;

  • evidence Annual Market Salary Rate (AMSR) and demonstrate that terms and conditions of employment offered are no less favourable than an Australian would receive in the same role;

  • conduct appropriate Labour Market Testing (LMT) to demonstrate there is no suitably qualified Australian worker to fill the role unless an exemption applies.


An employer may nominate under one of three streams:


  1. Short Term Stream – designed to fill skill shortage temporarily for up to 2 years (unless exemptions apply).

  2. Medium Term Stream – designed to fill an ongoing skills shortage.

  3. Labour Agreement Stream – designed in circumstances where an employer has negotiated an agreement with the Department.


3. Visa


To apply for a subclass 482 visa, an applicant must demonstrate:


  • relevant skills and employment experience to perform the position;

  • meet any health character and English requirements;

  • be eligible for occupation registration or licensing (if applicable).


The length of the visa is dependent on the occupation and period of employment.
